DARIEN — Six unlocked cars were entered and one stolen, all within a mile of each other during the overnight hours from June 17 to 18.
Around 8:45 a.m., police responded to Christie Hill Road on a report of a stolen 2008 tan Lincoln Navigator. Another car at the same property was entered and a wallet was stolen. Both cars were unlocked and the keys had been left inside the stolen car.
Officers searched the neighborhood and found two other vehicles had been entered. Another resident of the street found their glove box had been broken off at the hinges and the contents were strewn about inside the car. He found the contents of the glove box in his other car also disturbed. The owner said he didn’t think anything had been taken and both cars had been left unlocked.
Later that afternoon around 1:20 p.m., officers responded to another report of cars being entered, that time on Phillips Place. The complainant said both his cars had been entered overnight and $10 in cash was missing.
Around 2 p.m., another car on Phillips Place was found to have been entered overnight. The driver’s side door was left ajar and both the center console and glove box were rifled through. Nothing was taken.
Police are continuing to investigate these incidents.
