FAIRFIELD — An alert special police officer helped to snag two alleged bike thieves at the downtown train station Thursday.
Special Officer Tiffany Robledo was in the train station parking lot around 11 a.m., checking for parking violations. She noticed two men — later identified as Freddy Aponte and Miguel Lopez — acting suspiciously as they walked around the bikes several times. They had been dropped off at the train station. At one point, she said, Aponte was on the train platform and she saw Lopez ride off on a black bicycle.
