Police: Early-Morning Customer Smashes Port Chester Supermarket Window with Cart

Port Chester Pathmark was closed, clean-up crew told New Rochelle man he could not come into the store.

A New Rochelle man who was angered that he could not enter the Port Chester supermarket at 5 a.m. Saturday is accused of using a shopping cart to smash a front window of the store, according to Port Chester police.

Sean Fields, 25, of 35 Davenport Ave., New Rochelle, is charged with criminal mischief, a felony, as a result of the incient at Pathmark on Midland Avenue. Police said Fields tried to enter the store, but members of a cleaning crew would not let him in because the supermarket was closed.

Fields, according to police, then started banging on the doors, demanding that he be allowed into the supermarket. Again, the cleaning crew told him the store was closed.

Fields is accused of then using a shopping cart from the supermarket to smash a front window. Police said the window is valued at more than $500, leading to the felony charge against Fields.

No one was injured when the window was smashed.

Fields was arrested and later was released on $750 bail pending a Sept. 21 hearing in Port Chester Village Court.

Police do not know what Fields wanted to by at the supermarket.

The sign at Midland Ave. says Pathmark is open 24 hours. The guy wanted a case of cold ones.

How about you have the proof before your print something, and the individuals commenting need to take a look in the mirror and judge themselves before they point a finger.

How about that the guy was arrested; need more proof? Go to the court date.

What kind of proof? Like the fact he was arrested for breaking a window?

BINGO! "Fields, according to police, then started banging on the doors, demanding that he be allowed into the supermarket. Again, the cleaning crew told him the store was closed. Fields is accused of then using a shopping cart from the supermarket to smash a front window"

from the article - "is accused of". "is charged with". "according to police" - but you're right maybe he was just walking down the street and the cleaning crew, who probably make $8 an hour, decided to pretend that he broke a window... and rub his fingerprints on the cart etc. Cause yeah most people walking around at 5 am on a Saturday are just getting a good early start on their chores, only a _few_ of them are whacked out on drugs and / or alcohol having left the bar at 4 am. And I judge myself as ... never broke a window to get into a grocery store. You?
