Three young men are in a heap of trouble after a caretaker found they had broken into a house in Byram.

According to Greenwich Police multiple units were dispatched to a residence on West View St, located off High Street in Byram, on the report of a subject inspecting a residence for a friend who noticed items out of place and subjects possibly within the house.

Upon arrival, the first responding officer, who began an inspection of the residence, noticed three individuals exit the rear of the residence and run toward the woods, down Hilltop Rd and toward Byram Rd, disobeying officers repeated commands to stop.

Other units joined a foot pursuit of the three subjects. The three subjects, all teenage boys from Greenwich, were later identified as Kyle Joseph Zeta, 18, of 18 Henry Street; Jack Portu, 18, of 10 The Ave; and Sean Michael Thomalen, 19, of 26 Armstrong Court 22.

The trio ran along Byram Rd and split up as they approached the railroad tracks.

Zeta continued to disobey police instructions to stop and ran behind 196 Byram Rd. Officers finally gained custody of Zeta behind 196 Byram Rd in the woods. A subsequent search of Zeta revealed multiple baked brownies, individually wrapped and tainted with marijuana.

Portu was apprehended in the woods behind 196 Byram Rd. A search of his person revealed numerous drug paraphernalia items, a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana and a forged Illinois driver’s license.

Police gained custody of Thomalen in front of 221 Byram Rd. A search of his person revealed numerous drug paraphernalia items, a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, a yellow substance believed to be extracted THC, and an open bottle of Wild Turkey bourbon.

Also, a search of the residence on West View St revealed what appeared to be contraband related to the operation of a drug factory, packaging and distribution of narcotics.

Zeta was charged with Burglary 3rd degree, Interfering with an Officer, Illegal Possession of Marijuana (2 counts), Illegal Manufacturing of Narcotics and Operation of a Drug Factory. His bond was set at $5,000, which he was unable to post. He has a court date in Stamford Superior Court on Dec. 18.

Portu was charged with Burglary 3rd degree, Interfering with an Officer, Illegal Possession of Marijuana (2 counts), Illegal Manufacture of Narcotics, Operation of a Drug Factory, Forgery 2nd degree and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. The forgery charge stemmed from having an Illinois driver’s license with his photo, but the name “Jack Doyle.” His bond was set at $5,000, which he was unable to post. He has a court date in Stamford Superior Court on Dec. 18.
