According to the Connecticut State Police - Troop A, Southbury, Troopers and Woodbury officers responded to a report of a stolen vehicle at an apartment complex on Tuttle Road in Woodbury at 10PM last night (Sunday, April 16, 2023). Responding officers determined that a silver 2017 Hyundai Elantra with New Hampshire plates was stolen sometime between 9-10 PM, even though the vehicle was locked, and the owner had the keys in their possession. It was later determined that the thieves broke into the Hyundai through the rear passenger window, and hotwired it.

After a sweep of the area, officers found two additional Elantra's in the parking lot that had suffered similar damage. If you have any information, contact Troop A at 860-626-7900, or the Woodbury Resident Trooper's office at 203-263-3400.
