Police announced they have made what is likely to be the last arrest of 16 teens alleged to be involved in an April house party and burglary on North Street.
Maxwell Jewett, 18, of Cobbler’s Lane was charged with second degree criminal trespass, delivery of alcohol to a minor, tampering with evidence and second degree making a false statement.
He turned himself last Friday, Aug. 17 on a warrant, police say.
He is the only one to face charges of tampering with evidence or providing a false statement. Capt. Tom Comstock said the fact that Mr. Jewett “went back and cleaned up after the fact” led to the tampering charge.
In June, police reported that 16 teens had broken into a North Street home while the family was away on vacation and had a party with alcohol. Some $48,000 worth of jewelry and other items were reported stolen and about $10,000 worth of jewelry was recovered at a Danbury pawn shop, police said.
Fifteen were arrested in June, and most were not identified because of their age. Police said then that they were seeking a warrant for a final teen, Mr. Jewett, who they declined to name until he was arrested.
The arrest “is expected to be the final arrest in the case,” wrote Detective Nicholas Fowler in a press release, issued today.
