Two East Haddam residents with a history of thefts and burglaries stole a car from Middletown Nissan then turned it in at police headquarters four days later after feeling regret, according to Middletown Police.

Police say the car was reported stolen on Dec. 9 from Middletown Nissan and Hallowell told officers he felt bad about taking it and wanted to return it.
The report says officers found the car parked in front of the police department on Main Street, as Hallowell had told them. Both he and Stankowski were reportdly unaware of their outstanding arrests warrants.
Both were charged with second-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit second-degree larceny.
Hallowell is being held on a $15,000 bond, Stankowski on a $10,000 bond and both are due back in court on Jan. 10.
Hallowell and Stankowski have a sixth-degree larceny charge pending from Dec. 3 in Cromwell, according to the Connecticut Judicial System website. Stankowski has several pending cases: two Connecticut State Police Troop K arrests for third-degree burglary and sixth-degree larceny from June 13; and sixth-degree larceny July 8.
He was charged in May 2011 with possession of drug paraphernalia in Middletown.
