Stop sign damages swimming pool
Darien Police are investigating damage to a swimming pool at a Pear Tree Point Road home after vandals threw a stop sign into it, according to Darien Police Detective Mark Cappelli.
The incident was reported at 8 a.m. June 30, Cappelli said.
The stop sign tore the liner of the pool, creating an estimated $15,000 in damage, Cappelli said.
Jewelry store reports theft
A woman allegedly stole about $300 in beads and metal rings from Beadz Boutique, a jewelry store at 1094 Post Road, according to Darien Police Detective Mark Cappelli.
The owner reported the incident July 3, and the theft allegedly took place at 5 p.m. Thursday, July 2, according to Cappelli.
The woman stole two strands of beads with an estimated combined worth of $58, and an undetermined number of rings from a display, Cappelli said.
Violation of protective order
Kevin Wandzilak, 34, of 19 Devonshire Drive, Darien was charged with violation of a protective order on Friday July 3, according to Darien Police Detective Mark Cappelli.
A check of police protective orders on file determined Wandzilak was in violation of the order by being at his home with a protected party of the order, Cappelli said. The check was made after Wandzilak’s parents came to the police station asking for police help with an issue regarding his medication, according to Cappelli.
Wandzilak’s parents, Susan Wandzilak, 61, and Joseph Wandzilak, 63, both of 19 Devonshire Drive were also each charged with a single count of interfering with an officer after they tried to warn their son police were en route to check the protective order.
Wandzilak and the protected party told police they were unaware the protective order was still in force, Cappelli said.
Serving alcohol to minors
A 17-year-old Darien boy was charged with providing alcohol to minors and possession of alcohol at the fireworks display at Darien High School Friday night, Police Detective Mark Cappelli said.
While clearing the grounds of the high school on Friday night, police became aware of a 17-year-old Greenwich girl who was extremely intoxicated and vomiting, Cappelli said.
Officers found a nearby backpack containing a near-empty bottle of Dewars White Label scotch and plastic cups, and youth interviewed nearby helped verify the youth allegedly provided the alcohol to other youths, Cappelli said.
The youth will appear in state Superior Juvenile Court in Stamford, Cappelli said.
