Justin Lazaro, 31, of Clinton Avenue, Bridgeport, was charged with first-degree criminal trespass and disorderly conduct following an incident Friday morning at a Thornhill Road residence.
Police said Lazaro arrived at the home unannounced just before 8 a.m., pushed open the unlocked front door and tried, unsuccessfully, to get into the house, police said. He was found by officers about a quarter-mile away and taken into custody.
Lazaro was also arrested on a Bridgeport warrant for failure to appear.
He was held on a $2,500 bond and scheduled to appear Jan. 7 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
