Police say a call led to two separate arrests in South Windsor overnight Tuesday.

At around 5am, Windsor Police were dispatched to the 1000 block of Hacienda Way in South Windsor for a suspicious person checking door handles of vehicles.

Patrol officers arrived in the area and observed silver Honda Civic driving at a high rate of speed. Officers learned that the licence plate on the vehicle was stolen and stopped the vehicle in the 700 block of Havens Drive. The 30 year old male driver was placed under arrest without incident.

Mark Peltier, a 30 year old male from Windsor is charged with 2 counts of Possession of Stolen Property, Possession of Hydromorphone, and Drive While Suspended.

Around the same time, officers arrived in close proximity to the officers in the first arrest when they observed a second male with a yellow flashlight pointing through a window of a residence. The 23 year old male observed officers and began to run away. Officers were able to catch the suspect after a short foot pursuit and place him under arrests. The suspect was also wanted from a number of other investigations involving thefts and possession of stolen property. Upon searching the suspect officers also located property which appeared to have been stolen from vehicles. The investigation is ongoing.
