Police on surveillance Wednesday in Fairfield's beach neighborhood in the wake of several break-ins charged a Stratford man with burglary at a Fairfield Beach Road home that had just occurred.

Lucas A. Greene, 32, of Research Drive in Stratford, was stopped by police around 7:15 p.m. for what police described as suspicious behavior. When officers approached Greene's pickup truck, they saw a 42-inch flat-screen television, valued at $1,400, and a $300 DVD player that police said were taken from an unoccupied Fairfield Beach Road home.

He was charged with first-degree burglar, fourth-degree larceny and held on a $25,000 bond.
