A 38-year-old woman parked her Honda CR-V at Noroton Heights Railroad Station on Sunday morning, and when she returned a few hours later, the car had been broken into and the airbag stolen from the steering wheel, Darien police were told.
Police gave this further description of what happened:
The woman, a New Canaan resident, parked the blue CR-V on the eastbound side (north side) of the station at 8:50 a.m., and locked it. She returned to the SUV at about noon.
She found that the driver’s side door had been tampered with and the airbag, valued at $500, stolen. The vehicle’s center console had been riffled through, as well.
Although there are video surveillance cameras at the station, they didn’t cover the spot where the car was parked, and police have no suspects.
No other car is known to have been entered, but police have said in the past that in thefts of auto parts from parked vehicles, the thief is usually looking for a specific make and model to get a specific part.
