DARIEN — A 35-year-old Norwalk man was charged in connection to a series of car thefts, car burglaries and a home break-in in Darien.

In late August on Noroton Avenue, someone broke into cars and a home while the residents were sleeping.

On Aug. 30, Greenwich Police contacted officers in Darien after arresting a suspect in a car stolen from a Rocaton Road home two weeks earlier. While searching the stolen car, Darien Police found clothes stolen from an unlocked car on Noroton Avenue on Aug. 26, as well as personal checks stolen from an unlocked car on Tanglewood Road. They also located two laptops taken from the Noroton Avenue home.

On Sept. 28, police issued a warrant for Kurt Vanzuuk, of Linden Street, Norwalk. Vanzuuk was in the custody of the Connecticut Department of Corrections, so arrangements were made for him to be brought to Stamford Superior Court on Nov. 20.

Vanzuuk was charged in court with one count of second-degree burglary, two counts of third-degree burglary, one count of third-degree larceny, one count of fifth-degree larceny and one count of sixth-degree larceny. He was issued a $40,000 bond and will appear in court again later this month. He is still in the custody of the state.
