WESTPORT, Conn. — Westport police arrested three suspects in a number of car burglaries at the Greens Farms train station after catching them in the act via live-streaming video, police said.

The incident began at 11 a.m. Wednesday on a report of suspicious people attempting to gain entry into vehicles at the train station, police said.

As patrol officers responded to the scene, members of the Westport Police Detective Bureau began monitoring the live-streaming video from Greens Farms station.

Detectives located the suspects on camera, monitored their activities and updated the responding units, police said.

The first arriving units immediately found two males wearing dark clothing and watched as they "attempted to gain entry into at least two different vehicles by lifting or manipulating door handles," police said.

Detectives positively identified the suspects, whom the patrol officers were speaking with, as those captured on the video surveillance, police said.
