UPDATE Westport and state police today joined forces to arrest a suspected shoplifter from Fairfield whose apprehension on I-95 in Westport snarled southbound traffic.
At least one Westport police cruiser suffered damage as police followed and then boxed in the suspect’s vehicle near exit 17, according to reports from the scene.
The suspect, later identified as Michael Kondrat, 66, of Fairfield, was charged with sixth-degree larceny and engaging police in pursuit, sajd Fairfield Police Lt. James Perez.
He was wanted in connection with a shoplifting incident at Stop & Shop in Fairfield in which he allegedly stole meat, a soda and a flashlight, Perez said.
Kondrat was held on more than $25,000 bail for a court appearance Thursday.
