A trio of men are facing a plethora of charges stemming from a series of 18 car burglaries and thefts in the Cos Cob and Byram neighborhoods of Greenwich.

According to Greenwich Police, the trio was nabbed after a resident reported there were two suspicious vehicles parked on Wellington Place in Byram about 2:30 a.m. Feb. 7.  

Police say they found one man, identified as as Ramon Luna, 27, of the Bronx, NY, inside a Honda Odyssey minivan that had been reported stolen in the Bronx. Walking nearby on Mead Avenue were Angel Colon, 23, and Jose R. Colon, 19, both from the Bronx. It turns out that a Jeep Wrangler that police found parked near the stolen Honda minivan, had been reported stolen from Cos Cob Avenue in the Cos Cob neighborhood of Greenwich.

Police then discovered that several cars on Mead and Cos Cob avenues had been burglarized and the items taken from those vehicles were inside the Honda minivan, according to the report.

After police took the trio into custody, they found Jose Colon had the keys to the stolen Jeep Wrangler.  

"It was determined that the three subjects traveled to Greenwich from the Bronx, NY conspiring to break into vehicles and steal property from them," according to the police report. "Items totaling a combined value exceeding $2,000 were (reported) missing from vehicles confirmed to have been burglarized by the three subjects." A total of 18 vehicles were entered.

Greenwich Police also used a canine unit from Stamford Police to track the men's scents to the burglarized cars.

All three suspects were charged with 18 counts of third-degree burglary, and one count each of conspiracy at third-degree burglary, first-degree larceny, first-degree larceny by possession, fourth-degree larceny and conspiracy at fourth-degree larceny.

None of the men were able to post $50,000 bond and were held to wait for a Feb. 14 appearance in state Superior Court in Stamford.
