Town Hall Burglary, Tampering with Evidence Arrest

On January 15, 2020, Robert Mayer was terminated from his employment as the Chief Financial Officer with the Town of Fairfield. On January 16, 2020, in the early morning hours, Mayer allegedly entered Sullivan Independence Hall and removed several file folders containing documents belonging to the Town, some of which were related to the investigation of the “Fill Pile”.

After a thorough investigation by the Fairfield Police Detective Bureau, an arrest warrant affidavit was presented before a Superior Court Judge who found that probable cause existed and issued a warrant for his arrest.

On January 31, 2020 at 11:30am, Robert A. Mayer (DOB 07/15/1942) turned himself into Fairfield Police Headquarters where he was charged with Burglary in the Third Degree, Larceny in the Third Degree, and Tampering with Evidence. He was processed and released on a $10,000.00 court set bond, and ordered to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on February 03, 2020. Due to the sensitive nature of this case, it will be prosecuted at the Chief State’s Attorney’s Office in Rocky Hill, CT.
