Glastonbury police identified the adult suspects as Darrell Duncan and Branden Duncan, both 18 and both from Hartford, and 18-year-old Christopher Collins of East Granby.

A 15 and 16-year-old were also arrested.

Glastonbury police released video of a stolen BMW crash that happened on Route 17 on June 13.

Police said they began receiving calls about suspects trying to enter vehicles in South Glastonbury between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. The reports were from Great Pond Road, Bluff Point, and Main Street.

Glastonbury police identified the adult suspects as Darrell Duncan and Branden Duncan, both 18 and both from Hartford, and 18-year-old Christopher Collins of East Granby.

At least two callers reported seeing suspects enter garages.

According to Glastonbury Police Lt. Corey Davis, the five suspects were riding in a stolen BMW that was involved in a crash on Main Street around 4 p.m. A patrol officer noticed the vehicle on Dug Road beforehand.

Despite a blown tire, the driver of the BMW kept going and crashed along Route 17, which caused the stolen vehicle to become disabled. Police said the driver rear-ended another vehicle, which then crashed into a third. One of those other drivers was hospitalized with minor injuries.

Davis said the occupants hopped out and fled the scene on foot. They later called for a driver from the Lyft rideshare service to pick them up.

Five people were arrested in connection with three car crashes that happened Sunday, one of which involved a stolen rideshare vehicle.

When the Lyft driver arrived, four of the five suspects stole the vehicle and took off. They eventually crashed that vehicle near Glastonbury High School.

Police caught up to the occupants after a foot chase and took all five into custody.

"An officer who came to assist saw them come out of the wood line and was able to apprehend them after a foot chase," said Lt. Corey Davis, Glastonbury Police Department. 

Five people were arrested in connection with three car crashes that happened Sunday, one of which involved a stolen rideshare vehicle.

State Representative Craig Fishbein says, "this session they even fought against our proposal to institute GPS monitoring of juveniles released after being caught stealing a car." 

"There are a lack of consequences for young offenders, especially juveniles under the age of 18, so we see this behavior repeated over and over again," Lt. Davis said. 

Darrell Duncan was charged with reckless driving, evading responsibility, risk of injury to a child, second-degree larceny, second-degree criminal trover, interfering/resisting arrest, second-degree reckless endangerment, third-degree burglary, and conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary. He was held on bail totaling $130,000 and given a court date of Monday in Manchester.

Collins was charged with second-degree larceny, interfering/resisting arrest, and conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary. His bail was $125,000 and will also appear in Manchester court on Monday.

The two teens were charged with second-degree larceny and given juvenile court summons. They were released into the custody of guardians. Police said they could face additional charges.
