Using spare key, thief steals cash from Darien gym
DARIEN — Police are investigating a burglary at Embody Fitness, 380 Heights Road, reported Feb. 26.
The complainant told police that the cash drawer was short several times over the past month but assumed it was because of an honest accounting error. However, that morning she went to work and found the cash draw was short $109, and she was sure it had matched the sales when the store closed the night before.
A check of surveillance video showed someone wearing a gray sweatshirt and black ski mask using a spare key to gain access around 7:30 p.m. the previous night. The suspect could be seen removing cash from the drawer before leaving.
The complainant reviewed earlier surveillance video and saw someone she believed to be the same suspect again using a key to enter and take cash from the drawer on Feb. 18 around 6 p.m.
