Woodrow Avenue break-ins
Electronics and other items were stolen out of a number of vehicle parked on Woodrow Avenue over the past few days.
Sometime between 6 and 8 a.m. Monday, Dec. 3, an unlocked car parked in a driveway was entered. Thieves stole a GPS, charger, headphones and a Pandora plug with a combined value of $550.
Another car on Woodrow Avenue was entered between 10 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4, and 6 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5. The glove box was rifled through, but there was no evidence of theft or damage to the car.
A third incident was reported in Dec. 7, at 9:11 a.m. The full police report has not been processed yet, but police said it the car had been entered two nights prior.
A man tried to make a run for it after getting caught trying to stuff 23 cans of Red Bull into his coat according to Fairfield police. Mark Goncalves had previously been warned not to return to the Super Stop & Shop, 1160 King’s Highway Cutoff, where the attempted shoplifting took place.
The suspect was spotted in an aisle on Dec. 6 at 1:33 p.m., shoving cans of the energy drink into his coat. When ordered to stop, he made a break for it, dropping cans along the way.
Goncalves, 35, of Alice Street, Bridgeport, was described as uncooperative but was brought back inside the store.
He had been warned to not return to the store after a June 19, 2012, incident.
Goncalves was held on a $500 bond and is expected in court on Dec. 17.
