A tan Lincoln Navigator was stolen from outside a house on Christie Hill Road sometime overnight from Saturday to Sunday, a resident told police.

Darien Police Lock Your Car Every Time

On the back of Darien patrol cars: “Lock your car. Every time. Everywhere.”

The vehicle was one of seven that police found had been entered on that street just over a a mile away on Phillips Place during the same overnight period.

Not one of the vehicles was locked.

Police gave these accounts of each theft:

  • The Navigator was one of two vehicles parked at the house at 120 Christie Hill Road. A wallet was taken from the other vehicle.
  • At 115 Christie Hill Road, two other vehicles were entered overnight, police learned when they questioned neighbors to see if anyone had seen, heard or knew of any suspicious activity overnight. The glove compartment door in one vehicle had been ripped off its hinges; in the other vehicle, the glove box was open and the contents were left out. Nothing was taken from either vehicle.
  • Also on Sunday, three vehicles were entered outside 11 Phillips Place, a bit over a mile to the west (although in Darien, the house is actually on the Stamford side of the Noroton River). Those incidents were reported early Sunday afternoon. The center consoles of two vehicles had been riffled through, and $10 in cash was taken from one. A third vehicle at the same address was found with its door ajar, and both the center console and glove box had been opened and the contents of each riffled through. The owner believed nothing was taken.
