String of Car Break-ins Continue at Fairfield Gym

For the second consecutive week multiple car break-ins have been reported at The Edge, 500 Kings Highway Cutoff in Fairfield.

According to police, a cell phone was stolen from a gym locker room on Jan. 10 and multiple cars were broken into on Jan. 12. $80 cash and credit cards were reported stolen and one vehicle car door was damaged.

Security footage from the gym was reviewed and a white late model, possibly Honda, with dark tinted windows driven by a single subject was observed, but the thefts happen out of the view of the cameras, according to police. 

Several cars were also broken into at The Edge last week. Car keys left in the gym locker room were used to gain entry to vehicles and several items, including credit cards, clothes and cologne were removed.

And how do you know that the majority of the members are from Bridgeport? By the car they drive? And Bridgeport's "one huge ghetto?" I don't know that the people living in million dollar homes in Black Rock, and most likely paying more in property taxes than some in Fairfield, would agree with that statement. Or is your definition of "ghetto" a place where everyone is not as wealthy as you.

Jameson-I have zero interest in getting into a race debate with you, so here are the facts. At The edge on a typical evening, the demographics are approximately 30-35% African American and approximately 20-25% Hispanic. Fairfield is approximately 15% African American and Hispanic combined. Westport is approx. 4% minority, Easton 2%. Trumbull has their own Edge as does Milford and Stratford. Where do you suspect the vast majority of Edge members are coming from?

Evan-Never once did I associate the break-ins with Bridgeport. I just commented that Brian Kelly's statement about the parking lot being full of Porshe's, BMW's and Audi's was incorrect and that the cars in the lot more resembled Bridgeport. If you are offended that Bridgeport is not as affluent as Fairfield, than I guess I am ignorant. As far as my observations, have you been to The Edge between 5-9 p.m.? If not shut your mouth, you ignorant moron.
