On Friday, July 26, Wilton police arrested Ernest J. Bailey, of 43 Wilton Avenue in Norwalk, for third degree criminal attempted burglary.
At about 3 p.m. on Friday, a resident of Seir Hill Road reported hearing her doorbell ring, but did not see anyone at the door. She then encountered Mr. Bailey entering her back sliding door. Upon seeing the resident, Mr. Bailey said he “was looking for someone else” and quickly left. The resident watched Mr. Bailey leave the property in a gray Ford Explorer, and recorded his license plate number. The license plate number was later used by police to identify Mr. Bailey.
