FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A Bridgeport man was charged with burglary and drug possession after he allegedly broke into a car and fled on foot right toward the Fairfield Police station, according to police reports.
The car’s owner told police this past Thursday he found a man sitting in his front seat while it was parked in the lot of Bank of America on the Post Road, according to the report. The suspect allegedly took a small amount of change from the center console and ran across the street toward Sherman Green, according to the police report.
The car owner called 911 and chased the suspect down Reef Road. Three Fairfield officers joined the chase as the suspect passed by police headquarters and stopped the man farther south on Reef Road, according to the arrest report.
Officers said the man had in his possession a balloon filled with suboxone, a prescription medication used to treat opiate addiction, and a small amount of marijuana, according to the police report.
Hector Serrano-Burgos, 47, of Bridgeport was charged with third-degree burglary, possession of narcotics and failure to keep prescription drugs in their original container, all felonies, and sixth-degree larceny, a misdemeanor. He was also issued an infraction for possession of less than a half ounce of marijuana. He was held on a $1,000 bond and is due in court Feb. 11.
