FAIRFIELD, Conn. – An employee of Lenox Jewelers on Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield reported that a suspicious car in the parking lot sped off after being approached Thursday, police said.
The employee told officers a gray four-door car had drawn the attention of store employees because it was taking up three parking spaces and was near the exit to Black Rock Turnpike, police said.
Employees waited several minutes before approaching the driver-side window, which was rolled down, police said. As an employee got closer, he noticed two men in the car, one in the driver seat and the other lying across the back seats, police said.
The two men were described as each wearing black hoodies and Yankees baseball hats.
When the employee asked what they were doing, the car sped off on Black Rock Turnpike, police said.
The employee got the license place number, which led police to a residence in Bridgeport, police said. The incident was still under investigation, police said.
