A Lewin Plumbing and Heating customer reported to police Monday that someone charged his account with the store for items he did not purchase.

A boiler ($2,148) and miscellaneous parts ($1036) were charged to his store account and sent to a home (not his) in Bridgeport, police said. He did not place either of the orders. According to employees at the Kings Highway East shop, the instructions for the order were to leave the materials outside the Bridgeport home.

This is under investigation.


A Jefferson Street resident reported to police Monday that his home had been entered sometime between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. that day.

According to the resident, someone entered the home by pushing an air conditioning unit out of a first floor window and climbing through the window, police said. Drawers appeared rummaged through and items were dumped on the floors, but nothing was reported missing.

This is under investigation.

It looks like those expensive security cameras the town installed at the train station are useless in preventing bikes from being stolen.

Yeah I agree with Fairfield Resident, why didn't the camera jump down and make an arrest, useless camera! What? The camera isn't can't stop a crime, it just takes pictures of criminals so the police can investigate and use the video for evidence? Who knew?
