Darien police, working with police in other, nearby departments, have charged one teenager and have applied for a warrant to arrest another in connection with thefts from a home and vehicles in two different, recent incidents in town.
The boys are also each suspected of committing similar burglaries in other towns.
The arrested teenager, a 17-year-old Norwalk boy, turned himself in to police on Jan. 9. After being charged he was released to a parent and is scheduled to appear Jan. 15 in state Juvenile Court in Bridgeport.
He was charged in connection with two incidents in town. Police previously gave out these details on each incident. A reminder — these are accusations and neither boy has been convicted by any court for them:
Fairfield Avenue, Dec. 24 to 26
A garage was entered through an unlocked rear door and a purse containing money, credit or debit cards and a checkbook was taken from an unlocked 2010 Honda Odyssey SUV parked in the garage. A laptop on a desk in the house was also taken. It was near an unlocked sliding rear door.
The boy was charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree larceny and second-degree criminal trespass in connection with this incident.
22 Edgewood Road, Dec. 25 to 26
A blanket was taken from an unlocked 2018 Suburban SUV parked outdoors. A 2017 Jeep Wrangler outside the same house was also entered, but nothing appeared to be missing.
The boy was charged with third-degree burglary and sixth-degree larceny in connection with this incident.
