Days before almost two dozen cars were entered last week in Darien — and shortly after several others had been entered in town — a car stolen in Newtown was found in Darien.
“The investigation into this recovery, and its potential ties to other criminal activity, both in Darien and around Fairfield County, is continuing,” Darien police said in a news release.
Police gave this description of the incident:
A resident of the street told police on Monday, April 10 that the car, a gray, 2015 Audi A4, had been parked on the street since the day before and appeared to be abandoned.
The driver’s side door was open just a bit, and items, apparently contents from the glove compartment or center console, were strewn about the inside. Otherwise, the car was in good condition.
The car had been reported stolen the previous Friday. Newtown police officers went through the car looking for fingerprints and other evidence.
