On January 18, 2020, Alberto Rosado, DOB 07/15/1989, of Brewster Street, Bridgeport, was arrested and charged with Burglary 1st Degree, Larceny 3rd Degree, Burglary 3rd Degree, Larceny 6th Degree, Criminal Possession of a Firearm, Larceny 1st Degree, Larceny 6th Degree, Engaging Police in Pursuit, Reckless Driving, and Operating a Motor Vehicle Without a License.
On January 18, 2020, at approximately 2:56 AM, the Fairfield Emergency Communications Center received a report of an unknown male seen inside of a South Benson Road residence. A subsequent police investigation revealed that around 2:56am on 01/18/2020, Rosado entered an unlocked vehicle parked on South Benson Road, Fairfield, CT, stole a pair of sunglasses from the vehicle and then used the remote garage door opener to open the garage to a house on South Benson Road. Rosado entered the home and stole over $6,000 worth of items from inside the home. The homeowners woke up during the burglary and obtained a description of the suspect which was relayed to police.
Fairfield Police then observed a male who fit the description of the burglary suspect operating a 2019 blue Honda Fit on Old Post Road around 3:36am. Police learned the Honda Fit was a stolen vehicle out of Bridgeport, CT. Police attempted to stop the sole operator of the vehicle, who engaged police in pursuit. The operator did not stop the vehicle and police ended the pursuit pursuant to the newly enacted statewide pursuit policy.
Later that same morning, Fairfield Police Detectives gathered further evidence related to the suspect’s whereabouts, conducted surveillance, and were able to positively identify the suspect as Alberto Rosado.
Police followed Rosado, who drove to a Citgo gas station located at 2505 North Avenue where he was detained without incident. At that time, it was determined that Rosado did not possess a valid Driver’s License. He was additionally found to be in possession of a cell phone which was found to be stolen and belonged to the owner of the stolen Honda Fit. Fairfield Police Detectives developed probable cause to believe that Rosado was the operator of the vehicle which police had pursued in the Honda Fit earlier that morning. Rosado was then placed under arrest and transported to Fairfield Police Headquarters to be booked for criminal charges.
A search of Rosado’s vehicle, as well as his residence, yielded several items determined to be stolen during the burglary on South Benson Road.
Rosado was charged for violation of the aforementioned criminal and motor vehicle statutes. Rosado’s bond was set at $250,000, and he was issued a court date to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on 01/31/2020.
On 01/19/2020, Rosado’s bond was reduced by a State of CT Bail Commissioner to $150,000. Rosado remains in custody at Fairfield Police Headquarters at the time of this posting.
Rosado is also a suspect of a similar burglary that occurred on Riverside Dr., Fairfield, on 01/17/2020.
