Hamden police say that when an officer found an unoccupied, stolen Darien car parked Tuesday at Sleeping Giant State Park, a 22-year-old Stamford man and two other people later got in it. Hamden police described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court:
Marcus Colon, 22, one of the three people who got in the car (the others were a male and a female, Lovello said), was charged with stealing the vehicle and some of the stolen items in it, which police identified as having come from “numerous” burglaries in Stamford. Darien police detectives are looking into whether any of the items found in the car were stolen in Darien burglaries, Darien Police Chief Duane Lovello told the town Police Commission on Wednesday. Lovello said a male and a female who got in the car with Colon were also arrested, but Hamden police did not confirm that in their news release. ____________
