Incident Purse theft
Location ShopRite Supermarket Black Rock Tpke
Date of Incident December 2012
The Fairfield Police Department Detective Bureau is investigating a purse snatching that occurred on 12/21/2012, at approximately 4:00pm, at Shop Rite, Black Rock Tpke. The victim was an 86 year old woman.
The victim stated she was in the frozen food aisle when she was approached by a man who asked her some questions about frozen dinners. When she turned around to answer him, she momentarily turned away from her purse, which was in her shopping cart. When she eventually went to pay for her groceries, she discovered her wallet missing from her purse. She believes the subject purposely distracted her while someone else stole her wallet.
She described the man as black, approximately 5'8", slender, 30's-40's, w/ glasses, and a beard/mustache. He was also wearing a dark hat / dark clothing.
Investigators reviewed store videotapes and determined the male described above was working in conjunction with a female, black, approximately 5'7", heavyset, 30's-40's, with long curly brown hair pulled back with a dark headband. She was wearing a brown leather coat.
The two moved about the store separately, each pushing a shopping cart with merchandise. The video clearly shows the male distracting the victim while the female suspect steals the wallet (Theft itself not depicted on YouTube). The female suspect then quickly thumbs through the victim’s wallet before hiding it in her own purse. Both suspects then abandon their shopping carts and flee the store without making any purchases.
We are attempting to identify the subjects involved and are asking citizens to review the pictures.

While the Fairfield Police Department actively and aggressively investigates any and all crimes that happen in our community, we also recognize the importance of dedicating time and resources to solving those cases which have been labeled as “cold cases.” With the passage of time, scientific advancements have enabled the law enforcement community throughout the world to re-examine these cold cases with great success. In cooperation with our State Forensic Lab, Fairfield Police has recently re-opened one such cold case and we continue to investigate other murders that remain, to date, unsolved.
Homicide of an Unidentified Infant
|Date of Incident||March 14, 1986|
On the morning of March 14, 1986, the mutilated body of a 1 day old baby boy was found near a wooded picnic area of Fairfield’s Lake Mohegan Town Park. The death was ruled a homicide by asphyxia and mutilation to the infant’s face was determined to have been post mortem. The infant’s injuries are believed to have ritualistic/ religious meaning, possibly related to a religious practice known as Palo. The case has been re-opened by the Fairfield Police.
In 2011, the Governor’s Office authorized a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the murder of this infant.

Fairfield Rotary & Fairfield Police
to register children in AMBER Alert ID Program
(Fairfield, CT) — The Fairfield Rotary Club, in cooperation with the Fairfield Police Department, will be registering children in the AMBER Alert emergency response system on Saturday, October 26th from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Wakeman’s Boys and Girls Club in Southport, just off exit 19 of I95.
Over the past several years, the Fairfield Rotary Club has registered over 1,200 children at their prior events. This event allows parents the opportunity to register their children up to the age of 18 in the database and obtain an identification card. During registration a picture is taken and a description of the child is logged into the nationwide confidential database. The AMBER Alert database is used and accessed by various local authorities in the event a child is missing. Only a photo, decription of the child and a date of birth are put on the ID. There is no name, address or phone number on the card.
The goal of the AMBER Alert System is to instantly notify the entire state’s law enforcement agencies, broadcasters, transportation agencies and wireless industy, so that an urgent bulletin will be activated in the event of a missing child or an abduction. The public immediately becomes the ears and eyes of law enforcement and can assist in the search for the missing child. AMBER Alert programs have helped save the lives of over 350 children nationwide. Over 90 percent of those recoveries have occurred since October 2002.
The Rotary Club and Fairfield Police Department are being assisted by the Danbury Rotary Club which is providing the customized computer terminals and photography equipment.
The event is sponsorsed and that will allow for registration and the 1st ID card to be free, though additional identification cards cost $2.

The Fairfield Police Benevolent Association will once again be running its annual holiday toy drive. The toys that are collected are donated to Bridgeport Hospital. The toy drive is usually able to provide the hospital with enough toys to provide ill children admitted there with some smiles not only during the holidays, but throughout the year. This is done by the graciousness of the public and their willingness to give. If people are interested in donating toys they may drop them off at Fairfield Police Headquarters on Reef Road, the Fairfield Recreation Center on Mill Plain Road, or the Town Clerk’s office at Fairfield Town Hall. One other great way to donate while also getting some exercise would be to attend the Fairfield PBA Toy Drive Road Race.
