A Port Chester, NY man was charged with second degree larceny following a motor vehicle accident on Cliffdale Road last Wednesday, Aug. 15, after it was determined the car he was driving had been stolen out of Port Chester.
Police said they responded to a report of a single-car motor vehicle accident on Cliffdale Road at about 10:08 p.m. Police were informed that the occupants of the vehicle had fled the scene on foot.
On arrival police found the car, unoccupied, and determined that it had been stolen out of Port Chester on Aug. 9. During a search of the area, police located a juvenile female not far from the scene, who told police that she was a passenger in the vehicle and that there had been three other male occupants.
Police conducted an extensive search for the three males and called in the Darien Police Department's K-9 Unit to assist. Police said the K-9 Unit located two of the males hiding behind a wall not far from the scene.
The third male suspect, later identified as Brayan Castano-carmona, 20, of North Main Street, Port Chester, was picked up by police on King Street. Police determined that Castano-carmona was the driver of the vehicle. He was subsequently arrested and charged with second degree larceny in connection with the theft of the vehicle.
Police said the three passengers in the car did not know it was stolen.
Castano-carmona was held on a $10,000 bond and was scheduled to be arraigned at court the following day.
Police said they believe wet road conditions and excessive speed caused the crash.
