Jewelry, Perhaps Other Items Taken from Searles Road Home While Owner Away



Sometime in the two weeks before Halloween, a home on Searles Road in Tokeneke was broken into and jewelry was stolen while residents were away for an extended period, Darien police were told.

Police gave this account of what happened:

A caretaker who was checking the property about once every two weeks while the owners were in Florida told police at 8:46 a.m. on Oct. 31 that the home had been entered. She hadn’t been to the house since Oct. 17 when she pulled into the driveway Halloween morning and saw the front door ajar.

Police did not say whether or not the home had a burglar alarm.

When the woman parked her car she saw that a ground-floor window at the back of the house had been broken out. Police checked inside the home for any intruders, but didn’t find any.

Police detectives visited the house to look for evidence. Several items of jewelry had been taken, but with the homeowners away, it couldn’t be determined just how much and what the stolen items were worth.

Searles Road is roughly in the middle of the private roads in the Tokeneke section of town. Anyone driving to or from the Tokeneke Club needs to use at least part of the road.

Professor Daniel Kelemen of Rutgers University will speak at the DCA on Jan. 12.

Professor Daniel Kelemen of Rutgers University has entitled his talk, “Navigating Europe’s Perfect Storm,” and will focus on current movements within and around the changing European Union. Kelemen is currently the Jean Monnet chair and Professor of Political Science at Rutgers. His expertise includes the law, economy and public policy of the EU.

Current research includes the response of the EU to quasi-authoritarian governments in some of its member countries such as Poland and Hungary. What more might be done to defend the rule of law and democracy within member states? What will future relationships look like in a post Brexit Europe? How can weaknesses in the EU’s court system and migration policies be remedied?

Kelemen previously served as the Director of the Center for European Studies at Rutgers University. Prior to that, he was a Fellow in Politics, Lincoln College, University of Oxford.

He has been a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, a visiting fellow in the Program in law and Public Affairs (LAPA) at Princeton, a Fulbright Fellow in European Union Studies at the Centre for European Policy Studies in Brussels, and a visiting fellow at the Center of International Studies at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton.

Professor Kelemen holds a B.A. in sociology from Berkeley and an M.A. and Ph.D. in political science from Stanford.

With over forty publications to his credit, Kelemen is currently on the editorial boards of the Journal of European Public Policy and West European Politics and is a former member of the Executive Committee of the European Union Studies Association.

He is editor of Lessons from Europe? What Americans Can Learn from European Policies (CQ Press, 2014) and the author of Eurolegalism: the Transformation of Law and Regulation in the European Union (Harvard University Press, 2011).
