SHELTON, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say a school note left in a stolen car led to the arrest of a 15-year-old student on larceny charges.

Shelton Police Detective Richard Bango says a car dealership was burglarized and had two vehicles stolen on Oct. 26. The Connecticut Post reports police say another vehicle was stolen on Sunday from a different dealership.

Bango says one of the vehicles from the first dealership and the one from the second were recovered, and police found a school note in one of them. The note led police to a 15-year-old juvenile in Bridgeport.

The student, who was not identified, has been charged with burglary and larceny.

Bango says more arrests are expected in the case.
