FAIRFIELD — Absence apparently does make the heart grow fonder, but that doesn’t mean you can have sex in a parking lot.

One couple found that out when a witness called police to report that they were having sex in a car parked in a corner of the Home Depot parking lot Oct. 6.

Michael Quinlan, 31, of Hersh Road, and Jovanica Juste, 27, of Clifford St., Bridgeport, were each issued a ticket for creating a public disturbance.

Police received the call about the couple around 4:15 p.m. The caller said the man was on top of the woman in the back seat of a car and it was “obvious” what was taking place. When the officer arrived, he said Quinlan’s pants were down around his ankles and Juste’s pants were completely off.

The couple told police they got caught up in the heat of the moment, and that they didn’t have much time and hadn’t seen in each other in a while.
