FAIRFIELD — Fairfield police are investigating multiple vehicle burglaries that occurred late Tuesday or early Wednesday, and asking the public for help in identifying those responsible.

The burglaries and thefts occurred primarily on High, West and Montcalm streets, Military and Woodman avenues and the surrounding areas.

Officer Casey Dugas, the Fairfield Police Department’s public information officer, said at least 10 vehicle burglaries were reported, and all of the vehicles had been left unlocked, making it easier for people to get inside and steal items.

Dugas said items taken include coins and computers — “anything of value.” He said police had yet to tally up the value of everything stolen.

As of Thursday, police had no firm suspects, he said.

He said car burglaries seem to come in waves.


“We’ll get a handful, and they we don’t for a while,” Dugas said. “Usually, if we have one, we’ll have several.”

Asked if he had any advice for vehicle owners, Dugas did not hesitate.

“People need to take valuables out of their cars and keep them locked up,” he said.

Police said the burglaries likely occurred between 9 p.m. Tuesday and early Wednesday morning. Dugas said Thursday no other burglaries had been reported.

Officers are asking those who have outside surveillance cameras that might have caught footage of the burglaries to contact the Fairfield Police Department at 207-453-9321, Detective Shanna Blodgett at sblodgett@fairfieldme-gov or the department through its Facebook page.
