WESTPORT - Police officers used a Taser to subdue two teenagers suspected in several break-ins Sunday.
Police spokesman Detective Jeff Majewski said the two male suspects resisted arrest, but immediately complied and were quickly handcuffed after officers employed the Taser.
"The Taser gave us one more alternative that proved successful during these two arrests," he said.
Arrested were a 16-year-old Westport teen and Tyler Pimental, 17, of 26B Drive in Westport. They were charged with breaking into four vehicles and two businesses Sunday night in the area of Forge Road.
Police received a call at 10:47 p.m. of a burglar alarm at McCaskie Inc. at 197 Forge Road.
Eighteen minutes later, another break-in was reported at the Studio 177 Apartments at the corner of Route 177 and Forge Road. A witness observed two individuals breaking into a vehicle in the complex parking lot, police said.
While scanning the area, police officers saw two individuals who matched the suspect descriptions at Camara's Drywall. The suspects were trying to break into two business vehicles, police said.
Detective Majewski said the suspects ran when they noticed police had spotted them. Both fled toward Union Avenue. During the ensuing foot chase, an officer positioned his cruiser down the street to capture them.
Both suspects stopped and were ordered to the ground. However, they allegedly did not comply and were wrestled down by police. Officers tried to handcuff the teens, and used a Taser when they would not comply.
Both suspects were charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime for a felony, malicious destruction of property worth more than $250, larceny from a building and resisting arrest.
