Man Known to Greenwich Police Arrested for Incident Involving Stolen Gym Bag

On October 2 around 1:00pm, Greenwich Police received a report that a suspect reached inside a car and took a gym bag.

A witness who wished to remain anonymous provided officers with a video of the incident.

Upon speaking with the victim, police were told the bag contained sweaty gym clothes and New Balance shoes.

The following day, police observed a man matching the description of the suspect, David Giacomara, 24, of Mead Ave in Greenwich walking on Harold Ave. Upon speaking with him he admitted to reaching in the vehicle and stealing the bag.

Police obtained an arrest warrant on Oct 15 and when they spotted Giacomara on a bench outside the library they served the warrant.

He was charged with Larceny 6 and assigned a date in Stamford Superior Court on Oct 29, 2018. His bond was set at $500, which he was unable to post.

This is not Giacomara’s first brush with the law.

In October 2015, when he was 21, he was in trouble for missing a court appearance for Driving with a Suspended License.

In Dec 2015 he was arrested by warrant in the Greenwich Hospital Emergency Room for Probation Violations and Failure to Appear in Court.

One probation violation was for an April 7, 2012 incident on Old Orchard Rd in Riverside where he accompanied a friend to a residence where the friend was taking care of cats and stealing cash and household items.
