HARTFORD — Two East Windsor men were arrested after they were found inside a building at the University of Hartford with stolen property, police said.
Kyle Moule, 19 of Tromley Road and Ryan Ouellette, 18, of Perri Lane were arrested on charges of criminal trespass, third-degree burglary and possession of burglary tools, police said. Moule was charged with first-degree criminal trespass, a more serious charge, and Ouellette was charged with second-degree criminal trespass.
The university’s public safety staff stopped the men inside the Gengras Student Union building shortly before 9:30 p.m. The two admitted they had committed burglaries, police said.
The building is open to students, said David Isgur, a university spokesman, but the pair looked out of place. They had been to various locations around campus, he said, breaking into lockers and burglarizing a car. The two are not students, he said.
They are accused of stealing wallets, car keys and a musical instrument, Isgur said.
