Attempted burglary in Darien being investigated
DARIEN — Police are investigating a possible attempted burglary at a Stephanie Lane residence on the evening of April 8.
The resident, who was home at the time of the incident, did not report it to police until April 12. She said sometime after 9 p.m., she heard some activity around the home’s bilco doors, and then heard glass breaking. She went downstairs and searched, but found no broken glass or anything out of the ordinary.
However, on April 12 she noticed there was broken glass on the basement floor, and found a basement window had been broken and the alarm sensor apparently tampered with. Upon investigation, police said it did not appear entry had been gained into the home, and nothing had been taken.
Checking the exterior, police saw a set of footprints on top of the bilco doors, and the resident said they were not hers.
