Energy drinks stolen
Police are investigating the theft of $807.15 worth of Red Bull and Five Hour Energy beverages from the CVS at 964 Post Road on May 30, according to Darien Police Detective Mark Cappelli.
The incident was reported June 5, according to Cappelli.
The complainant told Cappelli that on May 30 an unknown suspect came into the store at 8:08 p.m. and put the beverages in two shopping bags and exited without paying, Cappelli said.
The quality of surveillance images recovered was poor, Cappelli said.
A 2008 Ford pickup parked on the Post Road just west of the Stamford border was burglarized sometime overnight Friday, June 5, into Saturday, June 6, according to Darien Police Detective Mark Cappelli.
The owner said he parked the truck unlocked Thursday around 10 p.m. and forgot to lock it, Cappelli said. A wallet with credit and debit cards was taken, Cappelli said.
A police officer patrolling near the border stopped when noticed a black briefcase on the ground in the middle of the Post Road and noticed the open door of a nearby Ford F-350, was open, Cappelli said.
In the truck, the officer saw the glove box and center console open and papers strewn about, Cappelli said.
John Roney, 54, of 101 Long Neck Point Road, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs on Saturday evening on Noroton Avenue, according to Darien Police Detective Mark Cappelli.
Police responded to the area on a report of a silver BMW driving south on Noroton Avenue on a front tire, Cappelli said.
After finding and pulling over the vehicle, Roney stepped out of the car and appeared intoxicated and unsteady on his feet, Cappelli said. Roney told police the tire popped when he hit a rock, Cappelli said.
Roney failed field sobriety tests and declined to take a Breathlyzer test, Cappelli said.
He was released on $500 bond and given a court date of Tuesday, June 16, in state Superior Court in Norwalk, according to Cappelli.
On May 31, a Raymond Street resident reported his mailbox had been vandalized, according to Darien Police Detective Mark Cappelli. The man reported the damage at 8:14 a.m. after finding the mailbox was missing and locating it in the front yard of another home on his street.
