Jose Rodriguez, 30, of 398 Fairfield Ave., Stamford, received an infraction after police stopped him for driving with a lamp post sticking too far out of his car on Dec. 21.

Rodriguez told police he stole the 15-foot lamp post from an Isaac Street parking lot in Norwalk, but after a friend told him he would probably get in trouble, he attempted to return it.

Darien police contacted Norwalk police, but Norwalk said the department hadn't received any complaints regarding a missing lamp post.

Rodriguez received a $117 infraction for failure to secure a load.

Attempts to reach Norwalk Police were unsuccessful.
