Bridgeport firefighter says carjacking endangered him

Bridgeport police

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Bridgeport firefighter has filed a civilian complaint against the city, saying he’s been put in danger since the carjacking of his vehicle.

Ronald Reed says police and firefighters are forcing him to try to identify the suspects in the July 20 theft of his 2003 Jaguar. As a result, he tells the Connecticut Post that the city is putting in danger his life, that of his 5-year-old daughter and members of his engine company.

Police Chief Joseph L. Gaudett in says Reed’s civilian complaint with the Office of Internal Affairs will be thoroughly investigated.

Reed, a nine-year veteran, says police asked him to look at suspects. But he says the man who robbed him wore a hood and he could not identify him.

He says police told him the case was closed.
