Brothers accused of theft, burglary to cover legal costs

MONTVILLE, Conn. – Two brothers who tried unsuccessfully to dump a stolen truck because they could not remove its tires attempted to cover their legal expenses in that case by stealing items from a local elementary school, according to authorities.

Christopher Lamotte, 18, and Steven Lamotte Jr., 20, face several larceny and burglary charges from the two incidents, police said this week.

Authorities in this southeastern Connecticut town say they had little difficulty finding the suspects.

In the first case, the truck’s owner told police that Christopher Lamotte was the only other person who knew about the vehicle’s hidden key, according to court records. And in the second, the brothers allegedly forgot a knapsack with one of their names inside at the crime scene, authorities said.

    They were also charged with petty theft for stealing and eating the school’s five gallon tubs of glue.
