Bridgeport mayoral candidate Marilyn Moore claims office broken into

Posted: Updated:

State Sen. Marilyn Moore claims her campaign office was broken into this week.

Her mayoral campaign team made the claims in a press release.

Staff alleges the break-in happened Monday, Oct. 7 between 5:30 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. at the campaign office at 360 Fairfield Ave.

Campaign staff members say they discovered the break-in and called 911.

In a press release, campaign staff says the latest break-in is an effort to "disrupt and scare" the campaign and that similar incidents have occurred in the past.

Moore's campaign staff claims that Bridgeport police received an anonymous call alerting them that two armed men had entered a campaign fundraiser at Port 5 causing a near panic and eight police cars to respond to the event with 100 people.

The campaign also claims that mail delivered to their office was tampered with last week.

They say in June, Moore's car was broken into and in July her son's car was broken into. Moore says she doesn't believe police have responded appropriately.

"I want the people of Bridgeport to know that I will not be intimidated," Moore wrote in a press release.

Police have not yet commented on the alleged incidents.

Moore says no computers were taken but they don't know if the computers were accessed. She says nothing related to her role as a senator is kept in the office, just campaign information. She does say she believes some documents are missing.

Capt. Brian Fitzgerald says he is reviewing surveillance video in the area.

Moore says because she is a state senator, state police are now involved in the investigation.
