Windsor Police have charged two thieves who were caught breaking into vehicles on Riverside Drive.

The arrests happened last week, on Friday October 19th at around 3:40am. Officers responded to an apartment building parking garage in the 8800 block of Riverside Drive for a report of a suspicious minivan.

Upon arrival, officers spoke to building security who advised that the vehicle had fled across the street to another apartment parking garage. Officers found the suspicious minivan in the apartment building parking garage with a female sitting in the passenger seat.
