Two juveniles were taken into custody after West Hartford police found them to be allegedly linked to a stolen car.

The car was reported stolen out of Longmeadow, Mass., and was located via GPS tracking in the area of Mountain Road on Monday morning.

Officers later found the car in the area of Hollywood Avenue at the Hartford city line. It was unoccupied, police said.
