FAIRFIELD — Troopers are asking for the public’s help to solve a recent larceny at an area highway rest area.

At 1:52 a.m. Sunday, March 22, troopers from the Troop G barrack in Bridgeport were dispatched on a report of a larceny inside Fairfield rest area on Interstate 95 south.

A janitor at the rest stop alleged that a brown wallet and cigarettes were missing from a backpack secured in the supply closet. In the backpack, state police said, was a driver’s license, debit and credit cards and $1,000 in cash.

When troopers reviewed the surveillance camera footage from the area, it showed a white man, possibly in his late 30s to late 40s, wearing a black stocking cap go into the supply closet and leave with something in his hands, state police said.

The suspect was also wearing a black jacket, black pants and white sneakers.

After leaving the supply closet, the man is seen leaving the rest area with what appears to be a brown item in his right hand, state police said.

The man left in the same white sedan he arrived at the rest area in, state police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call 203-696-2500, extension 4010. Callers can remain anonymous.
