FAIRFIELD — Three suspected vehicle thieves escaped police Wednesday after fleeing the pilfered truck and running through cluttered backyards.

The truck and trailer full of yard maintenance equipment was eventually returned to the owner, with no items missing, about 30 minutes after it was stolen.

It all started when Dan Davis and an employee stopped at the Home Depot on Cadenasso Drive. Davis went into the store, leaving his keys in the vehicle. This was unbeknownst to the employee, who later exited the vehicle, Davis said.

Not long after, three male suspects entered the vehicle and drove off with supplies for the roving business. A call soon went out with a description of the truck and trailer.

Officer Andy Carter was driving along Woolner Avenue when he spotted the trailer backing out of a driveway on Hamilton Drive. Carter said the truck then sped back into the driveway and the three suspects bailed out and ran into the backyards.

Carter pulled in behind the truck and gave pursuit while other officers rushed to the driveway just blocks away from where the truck was reportedly stolen. Carter said the area they ran into was full of junk and debris from several workshops that once operated there.

Several other officers soon arrived and a perimeter was set up, but the suspects escaped.

The three suspects were described as possible Hispanic males. One was wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt and another had long curly hair.
