Accomplice charged

The alleged driver in a theft from Home Depot has been charged after police said video cameras recorded his license plate and pawn shop records turned up his name selling stolen merchandise.

According to reports, a Honda Civic registered to Chuck Jammal, 29, of Derby, was used to evade store security after Russell Woodward stole some Milwaukee power tools from the store. Police later found the tools at a Bridgeport pawn shop, and Jammal’s name was on the ticket as having sold the tools to the store. Police also discovered several other items that had been stolen from the Derby Home Depot and sold by Jammal.

Police secured a warrant for Jammal’s arrest charging him with conspiracy to commit third-degree larceny. He turned himself in July 28. Woodward had been arrested on larceny charges in February.

Stolen car at school

Police were called to Frenchtown School early July 29 on a report of a suspicious car with two people sitting inside it.

Officers ran the plate and discovered it had been stolen and belonged to a different vehicle. The car itself also had been reported stolen out of Stratford.

The driver, Artay Drinks of Douglassville, Georgia, was charged with third-degree larceny. The female occupant was released on the scene and her father picked her up. Bond for Drinks was $20,000 for court August 8.

According to reports, police were called to Mex on Main about 7 p.m. July 28. An employee reported that another woman was calling the restaurant and threatening to beat her up. While police were there the woman phoned again, and also phoned several more times after police left.

An officer called the woman, Lisbeth Aldiva, 22, and told her to stop calling. Aldiva allegedly said she was determined to beat up the employee and didn’t care if she got arrested.

Drug possession

A Bridgeport man is facing charges after a routine traffic stop led to his arrest on drug charges.

Police stopped a car being driven by Jamar Robinson on Old Town Road shortly after 1 a.m. July 28. The car allegedly had its front plate located inside the windshield instead of its correct location.

When asked if there was anything illegal in the car, Robinson allegedly admitted to having marijuana. A subsequent search turned up a bag of prescription drugs. Robinson told officers he had just gotten a grill on his teeth and the pills were for the pain.

Robinson was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of narcotics and failure to keep drugs in their original container. Bond was $500 for court August 15.
