During a busy pre-Christmas day at a Darien beauty spa, a cash register was momentarily left unattended, which leads town police to believe that that was the moment when someone stole $200 from it.
The matter was reported to police by management of Lanphier Day Spa on Dec. 26. The cash was stolen from a register in the “boutique room” of the establishment at 20 West Ave. The police announcement didn’t say why management believed that the money was stolen on the particular date of Dec. 22. An investigation is continuing.
