Darien police said that a person went into a fitting room at the Tina Dragone store in downtown Darien, then walked out and seemed to be returning an item of clothing to a store rack, but store employees later discovered that the customer left.
Police didn’t say how the employees knew that or what the item of clothing was, only that it’s priced at $100.
A manager of the store at 1049 Post Road contacted police at 1:47 p.m. on Thursday, July 12 to report the incident.
Police were told that because there were a lot of customers in the store, the employees couldn’t continue to monitor the subject — police did not say if the subject was a man or a woman.
The police announcement said: “No further details are being released on this incident as it is an active criminal investigation conducted by the Darien Police Detective Division.”
