According to the Enfield Police Department, on Wednesday officers were called for a group of boys attempting to gain entry into vehicles in the Enfield Commons Mall and Brookside Plaza. Upon arrival, officers found the group at Brookside Plaza in a stolen vehicle.

Enfield Police K9 Dunkin was deployed when the occupants ran away from the stolen vehicle. K9 Dunkin was able to catch one of the boys during a foot pursuit and two additional boys were also located. The group were all juveniles ranging in age from 12 to 14 years old.
