The Westport Police have released this photo of a suspect in a very scuzzy robbery Saturday:
On Saturday evening, a man took a birdcage containing an undetermined amount of wedding cards — with cash gifts — from a wedding reception at Longshore.
The man — who posed as a guest of the reception or hotel — loitered in the lobby, talking on the phone, before grabbing the birdcage and fleeing on foot from the Inn.
Police set up a perimeter and conducted a thorough search of the grounds, with the assistance of a Norwalk Police K-9. Only the empty birdcage was located.
The suspect is a white male 25 to 35 years of age, clean shaven, with light brown hair (close cropped). At the time of the incident he was dressed in grey slacks, a white or light gray shirt and white undershirt.
If you have information regarding the suspect, call Westport Police at 203-341-6000.
