Shoplifting Arrest at Kohl's; Motor Vehicle Break-ins on Warwick Avenue

The Fairfield Police Department's press briefing today included the following cases:

A 41-year-old Fairfield man accused of stealing luggage and tee-shirts from Kohl's, a department store on Tunxis Hill Road in Fairfield, Wednesday afternoon was arrested.

Javier Saez, of Greenfield Street, was charged with fifth-degree larceny and threatening. Information on his bond wasn't available, and he was scheduled to appear July 27 in Bridgeport Superior Court.

Police said Saez walked out of Kohl's with a carry-all bag and a bag filled with tee-shirts, valued at $680. When Saez was stopped outside by Kohl's security, he told security to get away because he had a needle, police said. He then ran toward Greenfield Street and into a wooded area and pulled out a hypodermic needle, police said.

A State Police trooper responded with a K-9 and found Saez hiding in the woods, police said.

Coins in a cup holder were reported stolen from an unlocked 2008 Honda Ridgeline pick-up truck parked in a driveway on Warwick Avenue in Fairfield about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, and an unlocked 1993 Dodge Dakota pick-up truck parked in the same driveway was entered at about the same time, but nothing was stolen, police said. The incident was reported to police about 5:43 p.m. Wednesday, police said.
