FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A Bridgeport man was charged with a pair of Fairfield burglaries dating back to the end of May.
In one case, a suspect used an unlocked rear window to enter the Fairfield Motor Inn on the Post Road at about 3 a.m. May 30, police said. The man went to the motel’s cash register and took several hundred dollars, according to police reports. Investigators said they found the suspect’s face on video after the burglary. The other burglary was to a private home on Winnepoe Drive the night before the Fairfield Motor Inn burglary, police said.
Jeremy Mitchell, 23, of Bridgeport was identified as the suspect in both cases, police said. He already was in police custody awaiting trial for an alleged robbery attempt near the Fairfield train station last month, according to state judicial records.
Mitchell was charged with one count each of third-degree burglary, a felony, and fourth-degree larceny, a misdemeanor. He also was charged with two counts of sixth-degree larceny, also a misdemeanor. He was arraigned Friday morning and still is in police custody.
