Over the past two weeks the Fairfield Police Department received approximately 15 complaints
regarding the theft of packages from mailboxes and porches in the Southport section of town.
Most of the thefts occurred between 12/7/2011 and 12/10/2011.
Because the thefts involved holiday packages, and were ongoing in nature, they were given
a high priority, and were assigned to Detective Ed Nook of the Investigation Division, who
pursued the cases exclusively.
After conducting numerous witness interviews and surveillance operations Detective Nook
developed a suspect. On 12/16/2011, the Investigation Division executed a search warrant in the
Southport section of town and recovered some of the stolen merchandise.
An arrest in the case will be forthcoming, and the police department is confident that there will
be no further package thefts in the neighborhood.
