Patrol Division Officers arrested Ximena Naranjo and Ricardo Torrez-Aravena yesterday at Costco. Both were charged wih criminal attempt at larceny for attempting to steal a wallet out of an elderly victim's purse. They are also suspects in three additional wallet thefts from Costco for which arrest warrants are being applied for.

Always be aware of your surroundings and maintain control of your belongings. News 12 Connecticut Daily Voice Gold Coast Norwalk Patch

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Connecticut held it‘s annual Community Police Awards Ceremony today in New Haven. Community Police Officer Max Sixto was honored at the ceremony. Congratulations Officer Sixto on this well deserved award. Norwalk Police Department Officer Jean-Maxime Sixto Born in Haiti, Jean-Maxime Sixto (“Max”) and his family moved to the United States in 1971, making a home in Norwalk. He, like many other young adults from Norwalk, worked at Stew Leonard’s. This is where Max honed his gift of conversation. The Norwalk Police Department hired Max Sixto in January of 1997 and, in 1999, he was assigned to the Community Police Unit. Officers in the unit worked out of the South Norwalk Train Station, patrolling and conducting outreach to specific areas of South Norwalk. Officer Sixto was assigned to the Roodner Court Housing Complex. At the time, Roodner Court was plagued with drug trafficking and violent crime. The close relationships Max formed with many members of the Roodner Court community were invaluable in combating such crime. That is, many individuals living in Roodner Court had enough trust in Max that they were willing to share information about the rampant crime occurring in their community allowing the police to bring many of the offenders to justice. The positive effect of Officer Sixto’s constant presence in Roodner Court and his incredibly warm personality were apparent the minute he entered the Housing Complex, whether by bicycle or on foot. Today, Max cannot step foot in Roodner Court without a resident yelling, “Hey Sixto,” followed by a high-five or a hug. In addition, Officer Sixto has worked with members of the Roodner Court community to beautify the complex with bright flower plantings. This had a ripple effect within the complex, with residents pitching in to clean up and to even create two vegetable gardens within the complex. Officer Sixto also spends a lot of time at the Roodner Court Learning Center, which provides afterschool education opportunities for the youth in Roodner Court. Officer Sixto reads to the kids and is a positive role model for them. He also spends time with the kids at Grass Roots Tennis and meets with the junior counselors to discuss leadership issues. Officer Sixto recently noticed that a young resident of Roodner Court did not have a bicycle, and so he arranged to bring a donated bicycle to the little girl, bringing smiles to her face and to that of her grandmother. In addition to his duties in Roodner Court, Officer Sixto is often called up to assist with other community outreach events such as Coffee with a Cop, NPD Ice Cream Day, Community Police Holiday Party, SoNo Alliance, Norwalk Open House and many more. Max is a decorated officer receiving numerous awards and recognitions from not only the Norwalk Police Department, but from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Attorney’s Office. Officer Sixto has received numerous letters of appreciation from community members as well as recognition for Community Service from the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Officer Max Sixto is the definition of a Community Police Officer. His hard work and dedication to the community are second to none. He has spent his career working hard to make Norwalk a safer place while creating police-community partnerships.

The Norwalk Police Department encourages everyone to have a safe and responsible Halloween. Expect to see increased patrols around the city to ehance the safety of our community. Here are some helpful tips: If you see something, say something. Call 911 immediately if someone is at risk or a situation seems questionable. Your call may prevent a crime from happening. WALK SAFETY Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street. Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them. Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars. MOTORIST SAFETY Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways. Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs. Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully. Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings. Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances. Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours.
