Two New Haven residents arrested for alleged car theft in Bethel

Two New Haven residents have been arrested in connection with a car theft in Bethel.  In the early morning hours Wednesday, Bethel Police saw several suspicious motor vehicles in the area of Old Hawleyville Road and Route 302 including a vehicle registered out of New Haven.  They also saw a moving violation, and tried to stop the New Haven vehicle, but the operator took off at a high rate of speed. 

A short pursuit was called off. 

Later in the shift, Bethel Police received a report of a stolen vehicle on Route 302 in the area of Old Hawleyville. Later in the day, there was a stolen motor vehicle complaint on Old Hawleyville Road.  Both were left unlocked with their keys inside. 

The first stolen car was  later recovered by officers of the New Haven Police Department who arrested 21-year old Tyrone Felton and 19-year old Tivon Edwards. 

The other stolen vehicle was recovered in New Castle, New York. Bethel Detectives recognized the suspect seen in video surveillance footage leaving from the vehicle as a New Haven juvenile with a history of motor vehicle thefts. That investigation is still ongoing; however an arrest is anticipated.

Residents are being urged to lock their vehicles and keep their keys in their homes.
