Two Norwalk police officers are on administrative leave and facing charges after they were found together in a hotel room while on-duty, department officials said Tuesday.
Police officials said the two officers, 31-year-old Sara Laudano and 38-year-old Michael Dimeglio, were both on duty on October 10, 2020. Department officials said the situation began around 12:47 a.m., when dispatchers could not reach Laudano on the radio or by phone. Another officer was sent to her vehicle’s location to check in.
According to police, that officer found Laudano’s patrol vehicle in the parking lot of the Even Hotel on Main Street, along with Dimeglio’s vehicle. Supervisors got in touch with hotel management and found both officers in a hotel room, “not in a condition to respond to calls for service.”
