The Fairfield Police Department reports the following calls and incidents logged at dispatch:
Officers reviewed a security tape of a theft that occurred at Caribou Coffee on Burlington Avenue. The tape revealed that a subject, who was waiting at the counter, reached down between the register and a divider and retrieved a cash bag containing $220 and left the building. The subject later returned the money to the store. The manager refused to press charges. Officers conducted no further investigations and the case was closed.
An officer witnessed Mac Mills inside of a white Ford Ranger, which did not belong to him. When the officer approached him, Mills ran away from the vehicle; but he was apprehended after a short foot pursuit. Once officers obtained a written statement and were advised that the owner wanted to press charges, Mills was arrested and charged with burglary in the third degree.
A citizen reported that her dog — a female, tan, with a black stripe on its back — had been stolen off its leash. Subject reported she let her dog out on a leash around midnight. She advised that when she went to check on the dog at 6 a.m., the dog was missing. The leash was intact and there was no sign that the dog had chewed through it. It appeared as if someone either stole the dog, or let it off its leash. Officers advised subject to go to the vet clinic to see if it was turned in. Officers also went to the clinic, but the dog wasn’t there.
A citizen reported that someone stole mulch, lights and plants and also destroyed her garden. Officers made a report.
