Fairfield police make arrests in Brooklawn, Stratfield-area break-ins


Fairfield police say they arrested two suspects over the weekend in Brooklawn- and Stratfield-area break-ins.

On Saturday morning, police arrested Bobby Blakely, 43, after a Mason Street resident called police and reported seeing a man enter the bulkhead basement entry of the house next door. The witness said the man came out of the basement with a carpet dryer, which he rode off with on a bicycle, going toward Bridgeport.

A Fairfield patrol officer immediately found and stopped Blakely, who matched the witness’ description, on Maplewood Avenue in Bridgeport. In addition to the carpet dryer, Blakely was also carrying red-handled pliers, according to the report.

Blakely, of 45 Monroe Street, Bridgeport, was charged with second-degree burglary, manufacturing or possession of burglar’s tools, and larceny. He was held on $10,000 bond, with a court date of Sept. 30.

In the second case, a Stratfield Road resident who noticed that a $1,000 Trek bicycle was missing from his garage Sunday, called police that afternoon when he saw three people on mopeds stop near his house. The resident said one of them, a man, got off the back of the moped he had been riding as a passenger, went into woods near where he and the others had stopped, and came out with the missing bike. The man said the other two people on mopeds rode away, according to the report.

Police arrived as the witness was confronting the man with the bike and taking it back. Police charged the man, identified as Jorge Irizarry, 34, of 64 Yale Street, Bridgeport, with second-degree larceny.

The police report noted that although Irizarry said he had been at home the previous night when the bicycle was believed to have been taken, his shoes were soaking wet, and there had been heavy rain in the area overnight.
