Police are searching for two suspects who allegedly burglarized three Fairfield homes and led officers on a high-speed pursuit on Friday.
According to police, three Fairfield burglaries are currently under investigation after two homes were broken into and robbed successfully and one burglary attempt was interrupted on Friday, Sept. 27.
The two men, described as 6’1” and 5’6” Hispanic males in their 20’s, are thought to be connected to the string of burglaries, according to Sergeant Suzanne Lussier.
A Burglary Interrupted
A burglary was interrupted at 2161 Congress Street on Sept. 27 at 1:25 p.m. when the homeowner heard sounds coming from the second floor of the home and investigated the noise.
According to police, the homeowner observed the two males in their home loading a Playstation video console into a bag with other items and yelled at them. The two males then ran past the homeowner, out the door and into a small golden vehicle. Entrance to the home was gained by removing a screen from a first floor window, said police.
Officers located the vehicle on Black Rock Turnpike and pursued the suspects as they drove onto the Merrit Parkway. The men were traveling at a very high rate of speed and police lost sight of the vehicle near the Park Avenue exit in Easton. A plate was observed during the chase, but was registered to a different vehicle from Meriden, according to police.
