Residents of a West Avenue home reported Nov. 15 that more than $103,000 in jewelry, cash and silver coins were stolen, according to police.
Darien police said that when his family returned home at 9:45 p.m., the wife went up to the daughter's bedroom and noticed the closet doors had been opened. When she went into the master bedroom, police said, she found dresser drawers were opened and clothes and jewelry boxes were thrown on the bed and floor.
Taken from the home was $100,000 in jewelry, $2,000 cash and $1,000 worth of silver coins, according to the report.
The homeowner found the first floor bathroom window was unlocked and the screen was in the up position; the back door was ajar, police said. He told police that the bathroom window is never unlocked.
He also told police that on Nov. 15 a young, white male had asked to use his bathroom. The homeowner let the male into his home because he said the male was "nice looking," according to the report. The male used the first floor bathroom and then left the residence, police said.
Workers have been in the house recently, according to police.
