FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A Bridgeport man was accused of an attempted car break-in last fall in Fairfield, according to police reports.
A Berkeley Road resident told police he saw a man walk away from his car carrying a device used to unlock doors on the night of Oct. 7. The car owner chased the suspect down the street before he got away, but he provided police with a description of the man and the vehicle, police said. It did not appear the suspect had entered the car and nothing was reported missing, according to the police report.
Donald Jackson, 33, of Bridgeport was seen driving a car matching the witnesses’ description in the same neighborhood a few days later, according to police reports. Jackson had tools used for burglaries inside the car, police said. After an investigation, Fairfield police filed for an arrest warrant for Jackson, and he was taken into custody Wednesday by Bridgeport police.
Jackson was charged with attempted third-degree burglary, a felony, and third-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor. His bond was set at $5,000, and he is due in court Jan. 22.
