FAIRFIELD — A man who called police to report his new SUV had been stolen found himself taken into custody.
Richard Nagy, 73, who called to report that the 2016 Toyota Rav was taken from in front of his Center Street condo, was charged with an outstanding warrant from Westport for second-degree failure to appear on a sixth-degree larceny charge.
