This week’s Unsung Heroes selection is a no-brainer.
Less than 48 hours after Sunday’s carjacking, the Westport Police helped arrest two suspects. They also recovered the Aston Martin stolen from a Bayberry Lane garage.
Working with the Bridgeport Auto Theft Task Force (of which Westport is a member), the Connecticut State Police Violent Crime Task Force, and the Berlin and Waterbury Police Departments, a 39-year-old man and juvenile were arrested yesterday.
It took a ton of effort. Westport detectives worked tirelessly. Police Chief Foti Koskinas had “a couple of sleepless nights.”
But the job got done quickly, efficiently and effectively.
Kudos to everyone involved, from the first responders to all who worked behind the scenes. You truly do “serve and protect.”
