Police blotter: Police seek link in thefts
Darien Police are investigating whether two bicycles recovered in a Stanton Road front yard might be connected to the theft of a 2007 Chevy Tahoe sports utility vehicle on Monday, June 22, from a home a few doors away, Darien Detective Mark Cappelli said.
The car was reported stolen at noon on Monday, June 22, by a 52-year-old female resident of 74 Stanton Road, according to Cappelli. She said she parked the car at 10 p.m. Sunday, leaving the keys in the unlocked car, Cappelli said. The truck was missing at 5:30 a.m. Monday morning, Cappelli said.
Police responded to 77 Stanton Road on a report from the homeowner at about 11 a.m. on Monday about the two bicycles being left there, Cappelli said.
The car was recovered at 9:03 p.m., Thursday, June 25, by Norwalk Police in the parking lot of Home Goods, 680 Connecticut Ave, Norwalk, Cappelli said.
A 24-year-old Academy Street resident reported possible vandalism of her garage doors with paintballs, according to Darien Police Detective Mark Cappelli.
The woman said she went out at 3 p.m. on Monday, June 22, and found the paintball-like splotches on her garage door when she returned at 4 p.m., Cappelli said.
