A 37-year-old man was nabbed for allegedly breaking into numerous vehicles and taking valuables from each.

Wilberto Lozada Acosta, of Fairfield, was arrested on Thursday, Feb. 6, after police responded to a motion alarm at Gaine's Construction on Berwick Court in Fairfield, police said.

Once on the scene, officers checked the building, which showed no signs of forced entry, Fairfield Police Capt. Robert Kalamaras said.

As they kept checking the area, including the parking lot area surrounding the business, a vehicle was discovered with a broken-out rear window and it appeared, from the fresh wet footprints, that the vehicle was rummaged through, Kalamaras said.

Officers also discovered smashed out windows on vehicles at Fairfield Auto Works, on Berwick Court, and Abbey Tent Rental, on Commerce Drive. 

A total of six vehicles were found vandalized. 

Moments after responding, a sergeant spotted a man, later identified as Acosta, walking on Commerce Drive carrying two bags. 

A further investigation found that Acosta allegedly had items that were taken from the burglarized cars, along with tools that are commonly used to commit burglaries, Kalamaras said.

Acosta was charged with six counts of burglary, six counts of larceny, possession of burglary tools, and interfering with police. 

Acosta, who has a criminal history that includes burglary, is being held on a $10,00 bond.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, Feb. 20.
