STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Stamford Police Juvenile Division, in conjunction with the burglary squad, have arrested six youths involved in a burglary that occurred at a residence on South Lake Drive during the summer.

The homeowner had evidence the youths had been occupying his home, using his pool, drinking alcohol and eating food from the residence; the homeowner said approximately $6,600 worth of property, including laptops, cameras, sports memorabilia and clothing had all been taken, police report.

The homeowner supplied video from one of the burglaries, which allegedly shows a black male and a white male on camera stealing items from the residence, according to police.

Around the same time, several witnesses observed a black male and a white male throwing items into a dumpster, and police recovered the items, officials report. The two suspects matched the suspects from the video, according to police.

After further investigation, police were able to positively identify the two seen on camera and implicate four more involved in the burglary, police report.
