FAIRFIELD, Conn. - More than 10 vehicle batteries have been reported stolen from the Fairfield Department of Public Works garage since Monday, police said.
On Monday, a DPW employee reported that two batteries, valued at $240 each, had been taken from the garage overnight, police said.

Employees from DPW called again Tuesday to report several more batteries were missing and that several of the trucks had been vandalized overnight, police said.
Seven batteries, with a total value of $920, were stolen from vehicles parked in the outside lot, employees said Wednesday morning. A $500 set of Makita tools was also taken from a truck, police said.
