The Curious Incident of the BB Rifle on the Roadway in the Nighttime

When police were told at about 9 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 9 that there appeared to be a rifle laying on the pavement of Hollow Tree Ridge Road near Ox Ridge Lane, officers arrived to see what was going on.

There on the roadway was a rifle — a BB rifle, specifically a Daisy “Red Rider” BB gun. Police didn’t find any reason to think it had been involved in a crime.

If it’s yours, or if you know anything about the Red Rider that seems to have lost its ride, please tell Darien police. They’d like to know.

The place where it was found is about half a mile from Ox Ridge School, as the crow flies, or eight tenths of a mile away, following streets.
