Theft suspects take wrong turn in Rye
RYE - An illegal turn led to the arrests of two men and a teen on theft charges Tuesday.
Police said the occupants of a car threw a wallet out a window as a cruiser followed them around the block after an illegal left turn at Elm Place and Purchase Street at 3:30 p.m.
The wallet had been stolen from a New Rochelle man hours earlier and had not yet been reported, Lt. Joseph Verille said.
Police said they also found merchandise stolen from a Greenwich, Conn., CVS in the car. Verille said Greenwich police are pursuing the shoplifting case.
Joseph Dantzler, 31, and Shanwand Parham, 32, both of Brooklyn, were charged with felony and misdemeanor criminal possession of stolen property, and with acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17, another misdemeanor.
The teen, on probation from an assault charge in Brooklyn, was charged as a juvenile with possession of stolen property. He was taken to Woodfield Cottage juvenile detention center after his mother would not pick him up, Verille said.
