Six people were arrested in connection with the thefts of ATVs and other items in South Windsor.

Police said 18-year-old Jordan Brathwaite of Hartford and 18-year-old Deshawn Fitzpatrick of East Hartford face burglary charges.

Four other juveniles were also arrested and issued summons.

On July 7 around 3 a.m., police said they were sent to a complaint in the 200 block of Main Street.

Someone reported that a car alarm was triggered and six people were spotted leaving the area.

Police said that because of recent reports of car burglaries and ATV thefts in surrounding areas, they brought K9 teams to the scene.

A South Windsor officer reportedly found two vehicles parked behind an abandoned building on Main Street. Inside them were power equipment, gloves, bolt cutters and a number of cellphones.

Police said they found the six suspects in the area.

An officer also found a vehicle that had been broken into nearby.

One of the suspects admitted to police that some of the suspects acted as lookouts while others combed through yards and vehicles, according to investigators.

Police said the suspects appeared to be looking for ATVs in sheds and garages.

A Honda motorcycle was recovered on a path that connects South Windsor to Windsor by the Bissell Bridge, police said.

Brathwaite and Fitzpatrick were charged with third-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, conspiracy to commit second-degree larceny and criminal attempt to commit second-degree larceny.

The four juveniles were issued summonses for the same charges.

Police said they were between the ages of 16 and 17.
