A New Jersey man named Lawrence Crook, 37, was busted once again in Connecticut for trespassing and burglary charges less than an hour after he got released from custody for a drug and larceny arrest, says the police.
He was first arrested on Oct 8 in Fairfield on charges of first degree larceny, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia after a man at a condo reported it to the cops that he saw Crook with a black SUV acting suspiciously.
Fairfield police Lt. Antonio Granata told the newspaper that, “He was seen loading several blue and white striped bags into the vehicle. When he was confronted by a witness, a brief conversation ensued, and the male quickly fled on foot which prompted a call to police.”
Upon investigation it was found out that the SUV had been reported as stolen from a car dealership in Bayside, Queens and had tracked down a suspect who was later identified as Crook.
Granata told the newspapers that, “Officers later confirmed it to be the same suspect through surveillance video, a police K-9 track, witness identification and suspect admission.”
The bags in the SUV were laundry bags. He was also found in possession of suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
He was taken into custody and later released after posting a $3,000 bond but came into contact with officers less than an hour later after being released. He was arrested on third degree burglary charges and first degree criminal trespass after cops responded to the headquarters on Reef Road.
He is in custody and is due to appear in court on Dec 3.
