A 59-year-old employee at the Darien Post Office was charged Tuesday with trespassing on the property after he had been suspended.
Darien Police gave the following account of the incident:
Raymond Zodda, of Schuyler Ave., Stamford, was given a suspension without pay by the Darien postmaster on Saturday, April 14. At the time, Zodda was told not to enter any post office property and to have no contact with other postal employees.
Three days later, the postmaster called Darien Police, saying he'd seen Zodda riding a bicycle at the post office at about 6:45 a.m.
Police were not able to locate Zodda immediately. Officers went to his home, where he said that he had been to the Darien Post Office, adding that he was there as a customer.
Police then charged him with first-degree criminal trespass. Zodda was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford on April 30.
