Two of the vehicles were parked at homes on Fitch Avenue. The other two were on Outlook Drive and (in Noroton Heights) on Patton Drive. The first town resident to find a vehicle entered told police that a glove box was found open at 4:30 a.m.

From what was reported to police, apparently, the loot was pretty light, with only two items known to be missing and only from the first incident, below:

77 Fitch Ave.

At 5:44 a.m., a man told police that the glove box of a blue 2016 Mazda CX had been found (at 4:30 a.m.) with its glove box open and its contents on the front passenger seat. A debit card and employee identification card were missing.


15 Patton Dr.

At 6:33 a.m., a man told police he found the glove box open in his gray 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, parked outside and unlocked the night before. Nothing seemed to be missing.

26 Outlook Dr.



At 7:02 a.m., it was reported to police that the glove box was found open in a gray 2016 Land Rover Range Rover, which had been unlocked overnight. The contents of the glove box had been disturbed, but nothing seemed to be missing.

64 Fitch Ave.

Back on Fitch Avenue, where the first report came from, a woman told police at 8:55 a.m. that the driver’s door of her gray 2014 Toyota Sienna was found open and items in the center console had been moved around. Nothing was missing.
