Police Arrest Three NY Men in Liquor Store Thefts

Westport police today arrested three men in connection with thefts at liquor stores, including one that was robbed six days ago.

One of the arrested men was found to be wanted in New York and was held as a fugitive from justice.

Police said they received a call at 2 p.m. from International Liquor, 732 Post Road East, next to Calise’s Food Market, saying two suspicious men had entered the store and the caller believed a larceny had occurred.

Police put out a description of the car used by the men, and Officer David Farrell stopped it a short time later on the Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Bridge in Westport’s center.

Mulch Fire Spreads to House Siding

A small fire apparently started by outside lighting spread to the side of house on Westport’s Northfield Drive today before it was extinguished by firefighters.

A 911 call at about 7 a.m. reported electrical wires burning outside the residence. Arriving firefighters found a small electrical fire involving low-voltage lighting equipment had spread to mulch and the home’s cedar siding, said Assistant Chief Andy Kingsbury.

Firefighters disconnected the electrical equipment, removed charred siding to check for fire extension, and cleared a minor smoke condition with ventilation fans, he said.

The Fire Marshals Office was called to the scene to investigate the cause of the electrical problem.
