FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A man who told police he likes to sleep in a Commerce Drive business if he misses the last bus home to Stratford is facing burglary and larceny charges after officers saw him lurking around the building early Saturday, police said.

Michael Marzan, 32, of Thompson Street, who has an extensive criminal history, was charged with third-degree burglary and criminal attempt to commit sixth-degree larceny when police found him lying on the floor in an upstairs room at Champion Maintenance Services around 2 a.m., police said.

An officer on patrol noticed a suspicious person carrying a yellow bag in the area and parked to investigate on foot.

Finding the business’ door unlocked and a window open, officers went inside and found Marzan, police said. A search did not turn up the bag.

Marzan said he has slept at the business before when he misses his bus home, police said.

He was released on a promise to appear in court on April 24.
