#Bridgeport, CT – Jan. 17, 2014 – Three teenagers face charges after being caught in a stolen car Thursday evening.

Officer Anthony Caiazzo and Keith Hanson were traveling south on Central Avenue when they observed a BMW traveling at a high rate of speed. Earlier, Officer Julio Diez had issued a radio broadcast looking for a stolen BMW.

The officers turned around and attempted to catch up to the car. They were able to verify that the license plate on the car was the same as that of the stolen car.

Officer Juan Esquilin pulled in front of the car and Hanson and Caiazzo stayed behind it. The car pulled over. Ultimately, all three occupants complied with officers’ orders to roll down the windows and show their hands.

Trebour Kentay Bryant, 18, and two juveniles, both 15, were detained and charged. All three face charges of criminal liability, using a motor vehicle without permission and interfering with police. The driver was additionally charged with second-degree larceny.
