A thief was able to “experience the scintillating performance of the Maserati Levante” (as the manufacturer describes the SUV) by making off with the apparently unlocked 2019 vehicle sometime Tuesday night to Wednesday morning, Darien police said.
The theft, from outside a home on Old Kings Highway South, did not include the main set of keys, which the owner still has. But the man thought the spare set might have been in the vehicle.
The 2019 model, when new, had a manufacturer’s suggested retail price starting at $75,980.
The owner reported the theft to police at 3:34 a.m., Wednesday.
Other Vehicles Entered a Few Hours Later
That same early Wednesday morning, police received a report that two males had entered a vehicle in the area of Salt Box Lane and the Post Road.
A police officer who went to the scene saw two males walking on the roadway of nearby Beach Drive. When the officer tried to talk with the males, they began running away.
The officer ran after them, but after a short pursuit couldn’t find them.
An officer found that two unlocked vehicles — a 2012 Infiniti G37 and a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado — parked outside a home on Beach Drive had been entered. The glove box and center consoles were opened and the contents were removed.
The owner of the vehicles told police that several chargers and cords were missing from the Infiniti.
