A 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan, parked in the driveway at 47 Fitch Ave. was found stolen the morning after Christmas, one of four vehicles that Darien owners told police had been entered that night.
Here’s how Darien police described the incidents:
The stolen SUV had been locked — but other vehicles parked outside the same home weren’t, and the owner said the SUV may have been taken using a spare key in one of the unlocked cars.
The Tiguan had been seen in the driveway the night before, at about 11 p.m., when residents of the house arrived home and parked two other SUVs in the driveway, leaving them unlocked.
Sometime before 9:18 a.m., when police were called, the door of one of the SUVs, a 2017 Jeep Wrangler, was found ajar. A flashlight, usually in the trunk, was left on the driver’s seat. Nothing appeared to be missing.
The third SUV, a 2018 Suburban, looked like it had been entered, with the glove box and center console open. A blanket was missing from the trunk area.
At 4:36 p.m. on Dec. 26, the owner of a Jeep Grand Cherokee told police that at 8:30 a.m., she went to the vehicle, parked outside at 237 Noroton Ave. and found the contents of the glove box on the floor. The Jeep had been unlocked overnight. Nothing seemed to be missing.
