Officers arrested Stafford Angus, 19, at the Waterbury Police Department where he was being held after the Connecticut Forensic Science Laboratory matched fingerprints on the can to Angus.

According to Lt. David Farrell, the car had been discovered stolen at 9 a.m. Feb. 24 from the driveway of Silver Brook Road home. It was recovered on March 10 in Waterbury.

“The car was then towed back to the Westport Police Department, so that Detectives could examine it in the hopes of retrieving physical evidence,” Farrell said. “One of the items found in the car was an Arizona Iced Tea can, which the complainant said was not in the car at the time of the theft.”

Taking part in this year’s battle were 270 eighth graders who waged a friendly but spirited competition to see which teams, or “pods,” could raise the most funds for the annual effort.

When it was all over, it turned out this year’s competition was the most successful in the 12-year history of the program, raising $11,800, organizers said. The funds will aid the holiday gift drive of the Westport Department of Human Services and other charitable programs.

Since the program’s 2004 inception, more than $80,000 has been donated — testament to the spirit of giving among Bedford students.

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 15 Belden Place Image
An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 15 Belden Place, off Main Street and across from Veterans Green, is in process. Built in 1930, the 1-3/4 story cape has 1,382-square feet, is situated on an .06-acre property and last changed ownership, according to Town Assessor records, in April 1984. Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for

Himes to Head Centrist Dem Group

By Ana Radelat

Washington – Rep. Jim Himes was elected today to head the centrist New Democrat Coalition in the next Congress.

Himes had been one of four vice chairmen of the coalition.

“I would like to thank my fellow New Dems for the trust they have placed in me to lead this coalition and fight for them and the American people next Congress,” Himes said. “The future will bring unimagined opportunities, innovation and change. But, as the presidential election showed, change often leaves too many Americans behind. I’m thrilled to have the chance to lead the most forward-looking group of members in the Congress, all of whom are dedicated to defending and supporting those who get left behind.”

Created in 1997, the New Democrat Coalition say’s it’s a “moderate” and “pro-growth” group with about 50 members.
