FAIRFIELD — Fairfield police searched Broadway Street between Jackson and Madison streets early Sunday afternoon for two possible burglary suspects.

Police received a call that two black male juveniles had broken a rear window on a home on Madison Street, said Sgt. Rob Lenke. When the suspects tried to exit the front door of the home, they were confronted by neighbors and fled.

A helicopter and police dog were used in the search, which lasted for about an hour. One young man was briefly detained for questioning. Witnesses were unable to identify him, Lenke added, saying the matter is still under investigation.
