Nestor Rodriguez told Fairfield officers that the laceration on his head was the result of accidentally hitting the wall while trying to crate two large dogs on Jan. 16. The dogs were being put away following a verbal and physical altercation with his girlfriend that attracted police attention.
Both Rodriguez, 35, and Angela Hudenets-Harkinson, 47, were charged with disorderly conduct and released on a promise to appear. There were conditions on the release.
Rodriguez refused medical treatment and left the Rutland Avenue home for the evening.
Check held for fear of fraud
A man complained to Fairfield police on Jan. 15 that not only would Wells Fargo Bank, 1499 Post Road, not cash his paycheck, they would not give it back to him either. Bank management told officers the check triggered safety precautions meant to prevent fraud.
The check, from the Courtyard Marriott in Shelton, appeared to be out of sequence and bore a mismatched signature. Management told officers they would review the policy of not returning a check they believed to be fraudulent.
In the meantime, bank management and the man presenting the check have been told to contact the Marriott’s payroll department.
Fairfield police said a man who left $2,000 worth of tools in his truck overnight at the Best Western Black Rock Inn woke up to find his property missing on Jan. 15. Two bags containing the tools were left in his truck’s unsecured bed.
A Burr Street resident noticed her purse was missing while driving, according to Fairfield police. The purse had been inside her car on Jan. 15.
The woman told police a car window was slightly open and initially she didn’t notice the missing purse. Along with the $180 purse, credit cards, insurance and registration papers and a $300 iPhone were also missing.
Sometime between Jan. 13 and Jan. 15, someone busted out a window on a Camden Street homeowners vehicle. The car was parked in the driveway.
