A resourceful homeowner who heard suspicious noises, saw a man looking into her house and a van parked in the driveway, snapped a picture of the license plate, which led to the arrest of two men — who had loot from a previous burglary in the van, police said. Darien police gave this account (including a 2:45 p.m. update from Norwalk Police in italics) of the incident and arrest, including accusations not proven in court:
At about 2:15 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 17, a woman was home alone in her house on McCrea Lane and heard the doorbell ring several times. She also heard noise coming from the first floor. She looked out the window and saw a white van she didn’t recognize parked in the driveway.
