On February 6, 2020 at 2:26 am Fairfield Police Patrols responded to a motion alarm at Gaine’s Construction at 32 Berwick Ct, Fairfield. Officers checked the building, which showed no signs of forced entry. However, as patrols further checked the parking lot area surrounding the business, a vehicle was discovered with a broken-out rear window and it appeared, from the fresh wet footprints, that the vehicle was rummaged through. Patrols also discovered smashed out windows on vehicles at Fairfield Auto Works, 37 Berwick Ct., and Abbey Tent Rental, 158 Commerce Drive. (a total of six vehicles).
Moments after the initial response a Sergeant located an individual walking on Commerce Dr., eastbound, a short distance from the broken-into vehicles, carrying two bags. Further investigation revealed that the suspect had in his possession items that were allegedly taken from the burglarized cars, along with tools that are commonly used to commit burglaries.
Wilberto Lozada Acosta (DOB 05/19/1982) was charged with 6 counts of Burglary in the Third Degree, 6 counts of Larceny in the Six Degree, Possession of Burglary Tools, and Interfering with Police. Acosta, who has a criminal history that includes burglary is being held on a $10,000.00 bond and was transported to court this morning and scheduled to appear 02/20/2020.
