STAMFORD, Conn. — A man was arrested after his mother told police he was breaking into her Stamford home Tuesday afternoon, Sgt. Robert Shawinsky said.
The suspect’s mother told police she returned to her Court Street home to see her son, Charles Redshirt, trying to remove an air conditioning unit from a window, the sergeant said. Redshirt, 30, also reportedly took his mother’s purse from a locked car in the driveway, he said.
Responding officers found the suspect in the rear of the home and took him to the ground because he was acting bizarre and speaking in phrases that were not understandable, Shawinsky said. Redshirt told the police he just did crystal meth and his mother told them that he was a PCP user, the sergeant said.
The suspect’s mother told police that he was recently released from prison and not welcome at the home, Shawinsky said.
Redshirt was charged with third-degree burglary, attempt to commit third-degree burglary and sixth-degree larceny, police said. He was taken to court for arraignment Wednesday, Shawinsky said.
