We ‘towed’ you not to park there in Stamford

So on Monday, a reader tweets the Advocate to report cops swarming a park and towing cars.

We checked out his story and here’s what we learned from Stamford Police Capt. Sue Bretthauer, who oversees patrol in the Riverbank Park area where the action was.

She said residents have been complaining about incidents in the park, of illegal parking etc. But Bretthauer said those reports have too often come in after the cars are long gone and she asked the residents to start calling when issues are actually occurring.

That’s what happened Monday and police responded.
