In the past week, five Darien residents had their vehicles — all of them unlocked — stolen sometime overnight, and a total of 11 town residents found their vehicles had been entered after they were left unlocked, police said.
Darien police announced the spate of overnight entries in a Facebook post and on Twitter on Friday afternoon without giving details of exactly where or on what nights the vehicles were entered.
More details about the incidents are expected Monday, when police usually issue their regular news release.
Police added this comment:
- It is clear that once again a criminal element has become aware that many Darien residents leave their vehicles unlocked with the keys inside.
- While detectives are spending many man hours investigating these incidents, please do your neighbors a favor and protect your neighborhood from overnight car thieves.
- Lock your cars and take your keys.
