Westport police said today they have arrested a 55-year-old Richmondville Avenue resident who confessed to a rash of recent vandalism incidents in the neighborhood that included spray painted symbols resembling swastikas and the letters “KKK.”
Kelly Spearen of 17 Richmondville Ave. was charged with four counts of criminal mischief third-degree and six counts of falsely reporting an incident. He was released on a promise to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Oct. 9.
Lt. David Kassay, Detective Comander, said in a statement that during the incidents, neighborhood fences, including Spearen’s own, had been spray painted.
“The arrest was based on an investigation conducted by the Detective Bureau, which led to Spearen being interviewed as a suspect,” he said. “Spearen then confessed to all of the incidents being investigated, indicating that none of the incidents were bias-motivated.”

Just a complete and total a——-!! Someone should tie him up and spray paint him on a daily basis to say the least! “None were bias-motivated” Yea…ok. He’s definitely got the credibility factor going for him. Jail time would be fantastic for this…. (comment edited by WN)
Funniest comment yet on Westportnow!
Question. Was the suspect trying to drive down property prices in Westport?
Uh, even in Westport I believe someone is innocent until proven guilty. There may be more to this story than such a black and white diatribe that has to be edited by WestportNow. I trust that this will go through the normal processes and the truth will come out. I remember being on a jury for 15 weeks and the most difficult thing was doing what they instructed us to do (keep an open mind throughout the entire trial) but we all did that.
