WESTPORT — After a string of burglaries in Greens Farms and near Easton Road, police have gotten calls from area residents about suspicious men knocking on their doors.

Police believe the visits are a tactic for the men — who have made up stories about broken down cars or Internet postings when a residents answered the door — to find empty homes to burglarize.

One suspect that has been connected to the burglaries is in police custody for crimes outside of Westport, according to a statement from police. The suspect has confessed to recent burglaries in town and the investigation is still ongoing.

Police are asking any one with information to call the Detective Bureau at 203-341-6080.
