On Revere Road, a group of teenagers was seen checking whether cars were locked, at about 1:30 a.m., Saturday, police said. That night when several cars at different spots in town were entered and some items were stolen from them. A witness gave police the license plate number of the SUV the teens used when they left. Four teenagers were later arrested in Clinton early the same morning — inside the same SUV, which had been stolen in New Haven, according to police. Darien police gave this description of the various incidents that night, including accusations which haven’t been proven in court (and without charges yet filed by Darien police against anyone):

The first report of a vehicle being entered during that overnight period came from the owner of a 2018 Mitsubishi Outback, which was parked at 14 Midbrook Lane at 7:30 p.m.

By 11:30 p.m., the owner returned to the SUV to find that a backpack valued at $50 was missing, along with a U.S. passport.
