A longtime Fairfield County police lieutenant was arrested for first-degree larceny, according to the Bridgeport Police.
Lt. Stephen Shuck, who has been with the department since July 1983, was arrested Tuesday on a warrant and immediately suspended from his police duties without pay pending further investigation, said Av Harris, spokesman for the Bridgeport Police.
Chief AJ Perez stated that “This is a sad day. Lieutenant Shuck was an academy classmate, and we came on the department at the same time. However, my job is to protect and serve the citizens of this city and to uphold the integrity of the Police Department and that is what I’m doing.”
Further details regarding the larceny charge have not yet been released.
