Sheriff: Southeast Man Caught Trespassing, Carrying Burglar Tools

The Putnam County Sheriff's Office provided the following information. It does not indicate a conviction.

A 56-year-old Southeast man, who has an "extensive criminal history," is facing misdemeanor charges following a recent incident in Carmel, police say.

Deputies from the arrested Brian R. Fabian, of Kirkham Road, shortly after midnight Friday, according to a report released Thursday. The deputies were reportedly conducting a surveillance detail.

"They observed a man occupying a parked motor vehicle at a darkened area near the rear of Hannaford’s Supermarket at Putnam Plaza Shopping Center," officials said. "Shortly after the store closed for the evening, the vehicle drove into the restricted area behind the building. The operator, dressed in dark colored clothing including a black hooded shirt and gloves, exited the vehicle and approached the rear of the store."

At that point, authorities approached the man and conducted a "field investigation," during which time they found several tools "commonly used to commit burglaries, vehicle break-ins and thefts." Officials did not provide details on the objects.

Police charged Fabian with third-degree criminal trespass and possession of burglar tools, both misdemeanors. He was sent to Putnam County Correctional Facility on $2,500 cash bail, following arraignment before Carmel Town Justice Joseph Spofford.

Authorities did not specify the details of Fabian's criminal history.
