SHELTON, Conn. (WTIC Radio) - It was a note from a school, found in a stolen car, that led police to a suspect in a strong of burglaries at car dealerships in Shelton.

On October 26, two men threw a rock through a window at Curtis Ryan Honda on Bridgeport Avenue, stole vehicle key fobs, and then two vehicles, said police. Nine days later, police say a similar crime occurred at Mario D'Addario Nissan, also on Bridgeport Avenue.

Officers recovered two of the stolen vehicles, which had been abandoned. Inside one of the cars, a note from a school in Bridgeport containing a student's name was recovered, said police.

That student, a 15-year-old boy from the Park City, is now under arrest on two counts each of third-degree burglary and second-degree larceny.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are expected.
