A man employed by a window washing company tried to steal about $40,000 worth of jewelry from a Fairfield Beach Road home Saturday afternoon, police said.
The homeowner said after the two workers for Luigi's Squeegee left around 3:30 p.m., she found that a locked dresser in a second-floor room had been pried open. She called police, and the company's owner, who told the two workers to return to the home.
It was determined that only Angel Filomeno-Rodriguez, 26, had been on the second floor of the home, according to the report, and a screwdriver was found in his pocket.
None of the jewelry appeared to be missing, police said, and none was found in the truck used by the employees. There was about $1,000 worth of damage done to the dresser, police said.
Filomeno-Rodriguez, who lives on St. Stephen Road in Bridgeport, was charged with criminal attempt at first-degree larceny and second-degree criminal mischief. Bond was set at $2,500 and he is scheduled to appear May 28 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
