Car thief suspect eludes Fairfield, Westport cops by stealing GFA guard's car

The search for a suspected car thief, who led police on a chase from Westport into Fairfield and back, where the suspect abandoned the stolen Jeep Cherokee, forced Greens Farms Academy in Westport to be locked down Friday afternoon. However, police allowed students to be picked up as usual as of about 2:30 p.m. after investigators determined the thief apparently fled the scene by stealing the black 1996 Honda of a school security guard, police said. The incident began shortly before 10 a.m. when the vehicle, believed to be a Jeep Grand Cherokee, was stolen from a Long Lots Road home. The suspect fled east on Interstate 95 and left the highway at Exit 19 in the Southport section of Fairfield, where he was pursued by Fairfield police back into Westport before the chase was abandoned on Greens Farms Road.
