FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Fairfield officers made arrests in two thefts and investigated a third on Friday at the Stop & Shop on Villa Avenue, police said.

Shortly after noon Friday, officers were called to the grocery store after a woman left the store with $56 in items without paying, police said.

Loss prevention agents approached the woman after she made no attempt to pay for the items and she handed them a receipt, the police report said. The receipt was several days old, police say.

The woman refused to wait for officers to arrive, and left with the items in a green Honda, police said. Police say they are still investigating the incident.

At about 6:40 p.m., officers returned to the store after a man fled the store and parking lot after stealing $88 in candy from the store, police said.

With the assistance of K-9 officer Ruger, officers found Warren Goodman, 52, of Bridgeport, in a bush off Ridgely Avenue, police said. Goodman was charged with sixth-degree larceny and interfering with an officer. He was released on a promise to appear in court June 10.

Shortly after 8 p.m., officers were called for a third time after 35-year-old Troy Miller was stopped from leaving the store after he concealed $18 worth of items in his backpack, police said.

Loss prevention agents told officers that Miller had tried to leave the store without paying for two boxes of shumai chicken, a box of frozen Jolly Rancher pops and a roll of spicy tuna sushi, police said.

Miller was charged with sixth-degree larceny and released with a promise to appear in court June 11.
