Bridgeport man charged in connection with commercial burglaries

FAIRFIELD — A 48-year-old Bridgeport man was arrested Friday at state Superior Court in Bridgeport, charged in connection with three commercial burglaries committed in Fairfield late 2017.

Mark S. Lindsey’s arrest came after investigations that involved police in Stratford and Trumbull, as well as the Fairfield County Burglary Task Force. In several instances, Lindsey was captured on video surveillance.

He was charged with criminal attempt at third-degree burglary in connection with an attempted break-in at a Kings Highway title search company on Nov. 26, 2017 and two counts of third-degree burglary and third-degree larceny for two separate break-ins to the offices of Save the Children, 501 Kings Highway Cutoff, on Nov. 27 and 29. Several iPads and a boxed Galaxy cell phone were reported missing from Save the Children.

According to police, Lindsey has previously been convicted for burglary and larceny and was arrested for burglary in 2016 by Fairfield police. Lindsey lives on Boston Avenue in Bridgeport.

He was held on bonds totaling $200,000 and was arraigned the same day.
