FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Bridgeport man is facing burglary and larceny charges after a Toilsome Hill Road resident saw him inside his Chevy pickup just before midnight Sunday, Fairfield police said.

When officers arrived at the scene, Jesse Cruz, 32, of East Eaton Street, who matched the description of the suspect, refused to get off his bike and led police on a brief chase. He was stopped at Stratfield Road near Montauk Street, police said.

Cruz was in possession of several items police believe were stolen, including a $50 pair of women’s sunglasses, a $50 Husky flashlight and a GPS watch valued at $126, police said.

The witness identified Cruz, and he was charged with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny and interfering with an officer.

Cruz has a police record, including previous arrests for third-degree burglary and larceny, second-degree assault and possession of narcotics, police said.

He was held on $20,000 and is scheduled to appear in court June 15, police said.
