Police said they stopped the vehicle and found a counterfeit ID with a photo of Musah. They also found a new HP laptop computer connected to a mobile modem with a map of Rolling Wood Drive. Musah was arrested in Stamford, police said.
Darien Police Department previously received a complaint May 4, when a FedEx driver reported a suspicious man driving a silver Audi station wagon with New York plates, who claimed to be the addressee of packages scheduled for delivery on Bayberry Lane. Police said the person, later determined to be Musah, showed the driver a New York ID with the Bayberry Lane address and his picture. The driver refused to hand over the packages, four HP laptop computers valued at $3,359.96, according to the police report. The Bayberry Lane resident also reported he did not order the items.
Police also received a report from the same FedEx driver of an attempted larceny by Musah May 8 near 90 Post Road. Police said Musah claimed to be the addressee of several packages being shipped to Prospect Avenue. The driver refused to hand over the packages, which were HP laptop computers valued at $3,512.69.
Musah posted a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court June 8.
