Police have charged a man they believe was involved in at least eight car break-ins in August and September in the Park Avenue area of Fairfield.
Currytto would park his red Honda on a side street and then walk through adjacent neighborhoods, brekaing into cars, police said. Any items stolen, police said, he would stash nearby and return later in the car to collect them. Currytto was seen walking on Sedan Terrace around 1:30 a.m. Sept. 2, police said.
Following an investigation that including interviews with a Shelton man who told police Currytto often sold him stolen items, police got a warrant for Currytto's arrest. The informant told police that he had purchased more than 38 backpack blowers, 20 weed whackers, numerous chainsaws and other equipment, as well as GPS units and phones.
Police expect that Currytto may face charges for similar incidents in Bridgeport and Trumbull, as well as more charges from Fairfield.
He was held on a $25,000 bond and arraigned Wednesday.
