Stolen computer found on alleged trespasser

DARIEN — Police recovered a stolen computer on a homeless man after finding him in a private business they say he illicitly entered.

On July 30 around 8:30 p.m., an officer saw Carl Agbemabiese walking on the Post Road near Richmond Drive. The 24-year-old is known to officers as a homeless man who’d been previously warned against entering private properties in town. The officer saw Agbemabiese head toward Halstead Properties on the Post Road and followed him.

The officer found one of the doors to the building was unlocked. Upon entering, he located Agbemabiese in a first-floor bathroom. Agbemabiese had an Apple MacBook computer with him the officer discovered had been reported stolen from Alcone Marketing, another Darien business on the Post Road, on July 7. Agbemabiese admitted he took the computer and wiped the information from its hard drive so he could use it.

Agbemabiese, whose last listed address was Anita Court in Newark, Del., was charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree computer crime, fifth-degree larceny and criminal trespassing. He was unable to post a $5,000 bond and was held for arraignment in Stamford Superior Court on July 31.
