WESTPORT, Conn. -- A Bridgeport man was charged this week with stealing a bike from the Saugatuck train station in Westport over the summer.

At around 7:30 p.m. on June 14, someone reported that his bicycle had been stolen from the Saugatuck train station bike rack located on Railroad Place. The victim said he had locked his bike up with a lock.

Detectives reviewed video surveillance footage from that day and saw a white or Hispanic male remove the lock and ride off on the bike, police said. They recognized the man as 56-year-old George Lopez of Bridgeport, who had previously been arrested for the same offense, police said.
