GREENWICH, Conn. -- A 17-year-old is facing multiple charges after he was accused of conspiring with a man to stage a home invasion, Greenwich police said.
The teen told officers that on Nov. 17 he was at home alone at 279 Davis Ave. when two men dressed in black assaulted him and stole $11,500 worth of jewelry belonging to his mother’s boyfriend, police said. However, a police investigation determined that the teen had set up the staged home invasion with a friend.
The teen was issued a juvenile summons on two counts each of falsely reporting an incident, interfering with an officer, second-degree larceny, second-degree criminal damage of a landlord’s property and third-degree burglary.
The teen, who wasn’t named due to his age, will appear in Stamford Superior Court on Tuesday.
The investigation into the incident was continuing, police said.
