DARIEN — Two thefts from vehicles were reported less than a mile apart, though the thefts are believed to be more than a week apart.
On March 6, a 55-year-old Sedgewick Avenue resident told Darien Policehe believed his unlocked black 2008 BMW had been broken into between 9 p.m. Feb. 22 and 8 a.m. Feb. 23, according to police.
Taken from the car were a black iPhone 6, valued at $500, and a pair of black Reva sunglasses, worth $200. The owner found the glove box and center console opened and rifled through on the morning of Feb. 23 but did not report the incident until he heard of another recent burglary in the area on Rocaton Road. The detective bureau is investigating the incident.
Later that day, around 12:12 p.m., police were called to the First Congregational Church of Darien on Brookside Road on a complaint of a 2013 Acura RDX with a smashed window and missing airbag. The interior of the car was not otherwise disturbed.
The victim, a 65-year-old Darien woman, told police someone had smashed the front, passenger side of the locked vehicle. The Acura had been parked in the lot on March 6 from 8:45 a.m. until it was discovered at 12:05 p.m. by the victim.
The detective bureau responded and canvassed the area. No other burglaries were reported.
