Taxi Stuck After New Canaan Man Refuses to Move

A New Canaan man insists on a ride from an occupied taxi and vandals hit South Elementary School.


A New Canaan man was charged with disorderly conduct on June 6 after allegedly standing in the path of a taxi and its customer and refusing to move, said Sgt. Carol Ogrinc. 

Adrian Sisser, 35, allegedly got into an argument with a cab driver who already had a passenger in his vehicle. Sisser was allegedly demanding the driver, 41, to give him a ride home as he had allegedly been out drinking with friends, said Ogrinc. 

The driver, who asked Sisser to move repeatedly, alerted New Canaan police, who arrived at 10:38 p.m. at the train station off of Elm Street to find Sisser with the smell of alcohol on his breath, police said. 

Sisser was released on the promise to show up for his June 20 court date, police said. 


Police are investigating the vandalism of a basketball headboard at South School on June 4, police said. 

A male school employee reported to police that one of the basketball headboards at the lower playground was damaged with two holes and shattered, apparently by two rocks that were still on the ground when he arrived, said Ogrinc. 

The incident occurred sometime between June 1 at 4 p.m. and June 4 at 8:25 a.m. and the headboard is worth an estimated $500, said Ogrinc.


A Norwalk woman was arrested by New Canaan police on June 5 for alleged driving infractions and for failing to appear to a previous court date for the same driving infractions, police said. 

Krizzia G. Jaramillo, 23, was found during a traffic stop on new Norwalk Road to be without vehicle insurance, expired vehicle registration and a suspended license, police said. 

The officer ran her information and found that there was also an active arrest warrant out for Jaramillo for failing to show up to her May 25 court date, which stemmed from a March 7 traffic stop that revealed then that she was without vehicle insurance, expired vehicle registration and a suspended license, said Ogrinc.

Jaramillo is scheduled to appear in court on June 15 and bond was set at $1,500.


Police are investigating another incident of copper wire theft from the electrical substation on New Norwalk Road, police said. 

Around 500 to 700 pounds of scrap copper wire was reported stolen from the substation on June 4 at 7:57 a.m. by an employee of the Asplundh Tree Company, police said. 

The man, who parks his truck in the substation area, reported that the wire was last seen on May 31 in the back of the trucks where it was stored, said Ogrinc.

The fence was not cut this time, however the barbed wire was bent, police said. 

The stolen copper is worth an estimated $2,100. The previous theft of copper wire from this location was worth an estimated $3,000 on May 21, said Ogrinc.
