A 42-inch Vizio flat-screen television and various jewelry were reported stolen around last Wednesday from a Sturges Highway home.

Police officers found a basement bedroom window had been pried open. Earlier in the day, a Queensgrant Road homeowner reported a suspicious person in the backyard with a backpack over the shoulder. The person was identified as a white male, in his 30s with a medium build and dark hair. Wearing a gray V-neck sweater and khaki pants, he fled the area in a gray sedan, according to police.

"He was well dressed. He was trying to fit in in the area," said Sgt. Suzanne Lussier, a Fairfield police spokeswoman.
