Maryland State Police said yesterday that the arrests of three New Windsor and Union Bridge juveniles have solved at least 11 burglaries and two thefts from vehicles in that area in the past three weeks.

The burglaries included one Feb. 7 in which a 5-month-old puppy was stabbed several times.

Investigators said their break in the cases came when Tfc. Frank Quisay bought a videocassette recorder Friday from a juvenile in New Windsor in an undercover sting.

After checking the recorder against a list of items that had been reported stolen in the burglaries, police discovered that it had been taken, along with a large television, a compact disc player, six CDs and another VCR from the Union Bridge home during a burglary.

On Saturday, investigators returned to the juvenile's home with a search and seizure warrant and recovered stolen electronic equipment worth more than $2,000, they reported.

On Monday, state police arrested two 17-year-old youths and one 16-year-old boy, and recovered an additional $2,000 worth of stolen items, including two rifles.

Police said additional charges will be filed against the youths in Carroll and Frederick counties.

All three juveniles were released into the custody of their parents pending further court proceedings.
