Police: Men looking for ‘adventure’ break into Fairfield building
FAIRFIELD — Two men allegedly broke into a building early Sunday morning in order to give one of them “an adventure,” according to reports.
Andrew Moore, 21, and Luke Stepan, also 21, were taken into custody around 5 a.m. Sunday, after police were notified by Sonitrol that two men with flashlights could be seen inside a building on the Giants Steps campus on Barberry Road. The building is used for storage.
When police arrived, the two men fled on foot into the nearby woods, and then split up. With the help of the State Police police dog, Silver, officers were able to track down Moore. He then told police that his friend, Stepan, was probably headed to Moore’s house on Sturbridge Lane, were Stepan’s car was parked.
According to police, Moore said that Stepan, who lives on Krystalle Lane in Oxford, allegedly has a tumor and “he wanted to give him an adventure.”
Stepan was found at Moore’s house. Police could not confirm if Stepan has a tumor.
Both were charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and interfering with an office. Moore was found in possession of a small amount of pot and was issued an infraction for possession of marijuana, while Stepan was found with a pipe and issued an infraction for possession of drug paraphernalia.
The two were both released on a written promise to appear in state Superior Court in Bridgeport on August 1.
