State police are investigating several motor vehicle break-ins that occurred last week in Middlefield and the suspects could be connected to thefts in other towns.
The car break-ins were reported during the overnight hours between Oct. 20 and Oct. 21.
A man reported to state police that his wallet had been taken from his motor vehicle. The man told police that he became aware of his wallet theft after his credit card was used at a store in the Middlefield area.
During their investigation, state police were able to determine the credit card was used at a Wallingford store on Oct. 21 around 2:45 a.m.
State police was able to obtain surveillance photos of the suspects, which were released to the media on Wednesday.
Suspects’ motor vehicle is believed to be a “Nissan Maxima with damage to the passenger side front quarter panel, and damage to the passenger side rear bumper cover.”
Police said the two suspects were wanted in connection with “vehicle break-ins in other towns as well.”
State police released the following tips to avoid becoming a victim of vehicle break-ins:
