The boyfriend of a Darien man’s adult daughter stole checks — along with $300 in cash and a credit card from the man’s dresser — resulting in the arrests of the boyfriend and another Stamford man, police said. Darien police described what happened with this account (including accusations not proven in court):
Sometime before June 7, when he went to police, the Darien man found a total of five fraudulent checks cashed against his bank account, with a total of $1,455 withdrawn. Several of the checks were made out to Richard Simmons of Stamford. Another $556 was taken from the credit card account through the Venmo app. The victim’s bank gave him cancelled checks and copies of IDs used to cash the checks.
