Stopping at CVS to pick up some razors is perfectly acceptable unless you don't pay for them, as one Westport resident is suspected of doing, police said.
Kenneth Diiulio, of 105 Saugatuck Ave., was spotted by CVS employees Monday night after he stopped in front of the razor display and quickly pressed buttons to release several packages, police said. Diiulio, 63, was then reportedly seen putting the packages into a black bag he had carried into the store.
Moments later, Diiulio was spotted going into the store bathroom. Two employees went to the bathroom's common hallway, where they heard what sounded like plastic packages being cut open, police said. Once Diiulio left the bathroom, one employee went inside and reportedly found two empty packages of Gillette Fusion Pro Glide razors and one package of Gillette Fusion razors, which had been cut open and placed into the bathroom's trash can.
The other employee followed Diiulio out of the store and saw him get in a car, which was registered to him. CVS provided police with a photograph of Diiulio and a video showing him entering the store. Police found Diiulio's car at his residence, and he matched the photo provided by CVS. Diiulio was charged with sixth-degree larceny and was released on a promise to appear in court June 23.
