Owner Takes Back Vehicle Police Ordered Towed Away

Police said a Bridgeport man surreptitiously recovered his car Sunday morning after police ordered it to be towed to a body shop.

A tow truck driver employed by J. Cox & Son Auto Body, 15 Knight St., told officers he put a car in the company's fenced-in lot at around 12:30 a.m. and began completing a form for towed vehicles, with the entrance gate left open.

He said a car stopped in front of the lot and a man exited it and ran to a another car in the lot. He said the man started the car and drove away.

Police spokesman Sgt. David O'Connor said the car had been towed away after a traffic stop because the driver had a suspended license and the car was uninsured and had a suspended registration.

O'Connor said police know the man's name and address and will apply for an arrest warrant to take him into custody.
