Marpe on Vandalized Banner: ‘Angry it’s Gone Again’

When Westport’s Unitarian Church rededicated its new Black Lives Matter banner last week, replacing the one ripped down in August, the Rev. John Morehouse thanked his congregants and the Westport community for their support.

“The outpouring of support for this has been absolutely incredible,” said Morehouse, adding that the church received so many donations for a new banner, he had “enough for another if this one comes down.”

Today, those words seem prophetic. The new banner went missing sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning, officials said.

Unlike the original roadside one that had been ripped down Aug. 23 and later found torn in half and on the side of the road, the new one has yet to be found, according to First Selectman Jim Marpe.

Black Lives Matter Banner Vandalized Again

WestportNow.com Image
Five days after its rededication (see WestportNow Sept. 17, 2017) , the Black Lives Matter banner at Westport’s Unitarian Church has been vandalized again, according to the Rev. John Morehouse. In a Facebook posting, he said the banner was vandalized sometime Friday night/Saturday morning. “Every time the banner is vandalized it fortifies our resolve to replace it and underscores the very need for its existence,” he said. The first banner was ripped from its frame on Aug. 23. (See WestportNow Aug. 25, 2017) (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Police: Superstorm Sandy Scammer Arrested

It took more than four years, but Westport police finally have arrested a man who they said scammed victims with offers of generator installations that never happened after Superstorm Sandy in 2012, police said.

John Mech: arrested in Oregon.  Westport Police photo

John Mech, 56, of Seaside, Oregon was arrested there on Sept. 15 by local wildlife/game control agents for an illegal fishing violation, said Lt. David Farrell.  Upon checking, they found outstanding warrants for him from Westport, Monroe, and Stamford, he said, in which victims alleged they paid money for generators that he never installed.

Stamford detectives escorted him back to Connecticut and Westport subsequently arrested him on Thursday for third-degree larceny and a home improvement violation. He faces similar charges in the other communities.

Westport slapped a $10,000 bond on him while it and bonds from other jurisdictions added up to $61,000, Farrell said. Mech is scheduled for a court appearance on Monday, Oct. 2.
