STURBRIDGE — Police have identified two additional suspects wanted in connection to a string of motor vehicle thefts that concluded on Tuesday, Sept. 15 in Wells State Park.

Following the recovery of two cars stolen from Diamond Chevrolet and Herb Chambers Toyota in Auburn and two motorcycles stolen from residences in Spencer, Sturbridge Officers Larry Bateman and Earl Dessert arrested William Ebersold, 34, of Worcester, and Crystal Campbell, 23, of Holland.

Police were initially alerted to the whereabouts of the vehicles by OnStar communication systems. The department was notified that a 1999 Chevy Blazer, which had been reported stolen by the dealership, was located by GPS.

Upon arrival at Wells State Park, officers located the Blazer, a Toyota Corolla and the two Honda motorcycles. License plates on all four vehicles had been either tampered with, or replaced with stolen plates.
