FAIRFIELD, Conn. A Bridgeport teen was charged with a series of car burglaries in Fairfield early Thursday. The 16-year-old male was also carrying an air pistol in his waistband, police say.
A Fairfield police sergeant saw two teenage boys walking along Kings Highway toward the Bridgeport border just before 1 a.m. Thursday. While talking with them, the sergeant found that one of the boys was carrying a bag containing a laptop, an iPod, two GPS devices and a pair of glasses, according to the police report. The teen also had an unloaded Airsoft pistol in his pants, police say.
The home addresses of the GPS units were traced to nearby houses. The residents of those homes confirmed that the items had been left inside cars parked outside earlier that evening. The total value of the items taken was $1,900.
The suspect was issued a juvenile summons for carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a dangerous weapon, larceny by possession and burglary. He was released to his mother on a promise to appear in court March 23.
