An alert Imperial Avenue resident who spotted a man breaking into his car early today led to the arrest of the man and two alleged accomplices, Westport police said.
Police responded at about 3 a.m. to a call from the resident who was able to provide a description of the suspect’s vehicle, police said. It was spotted a short time later by officers who arrested its two occupants.
They were identified as Gary Cappiello, 31, of Norwalk, the driver, and Brian Martinez, 24, of Norwalk, the passenger.
Upon questioning, the pair admitted to driving a third man into the area to steal from cars, police said. At the same time, they found a machete-type knife on the floor of the vehicle behind the driver.
