Inmate charged with violating protective order

Phones and mail are available to Connecticut Department of Corrections inmates so they can keep in contact with friends and family. One inmate did so in violation of a protective order, police said.

Fairfield police said Justin Lazaro, 31, of Clinton Avenue, Bridgeport did that while in custody.

Lazaro was arrested in January for disorderly conduct and first degree trespassing at a Thornhill Road home in Fairfield. At that time there were active warrants for his arrest for violation of probation and failure to appear in court.

Lazaro reportedly tried to enter the Thornhill home, unsuccessfully, in the early morning hours of Jan. 4, after pushing open an unlocked front door. Police arrested him a quarter mile away from the house.

The new charges claim Lazaro attempted to make phone calls to the same Thornhill Road residence while in detention. He also reportedly gave sent mail to a friend requesting aid in contacting the occupants. All attempts at contact are in violation of the protective order against Lazaro, something he allegedly told police he was aware of.

The incident was reported on March 1 and a warrant was applied for. Lazaro was arrested for violation of a protective order on April 3 and held in lieu of a $25,000 bond.
