Westport resident Avi Silberman was arrested Wednesday morning after a Calumet Road resident reported a suspicious person walking around her vacationing neighbor's yard.
After the call came in about 8 a.m., three Westport police officers were sent to the house, Capt. Sam Arciola reported. When they arrived, the officers saw a car parked in the front. As the officers made their way around the outside of the residence, the suspect was allegedly seen leaving the house from the front door. In asking why he was at the house, police determined Silberman was lying.
During the investigation, it was learned that Silberman, 20, knew the homeowner was away. When contacted, the homeowner confirmed Silberman had no right to be at the house.
At the time of his arrest, Silberman was found in possession of earrings, which he allegedly took from the house. Marijuana was reportedly found in his car as well.
Silberman was charged with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny and possession of marijuana. He was released on $5,000 bond and has a court date of Jan. 20.
