One Hamden man was arrested and another thought to have gotten away Saturday night after they allegedly tried to break into a Longmeadow Road home, according to police.
A call came in about about 11 p.m. of a burglary in process, police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith said. Officers found that two men tried to enter the garage, breaking the door, frame, a locking device and a screen window, he said. The two took off toward Laconia Avenue, Smith said.
But just after that Sergeant John Sullivan and Officer Gabe Garcia saw one of them in the area of Pine Rock Avenue and Helen Street, Smith said, and caught up with him.
The suspect, Jonathan Lewis, 18, of 84 Morgan Lane, Hamden, was charged with criminal attempt to commit third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief, conspiracy to commit second-degree criminal mischief, criminal trespass and interfering with a police officer.
Lewis posted $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on October 2.
The investigation is continuing, Smith said.
