A Darien man who left $360 in cash “in plain view” on the front passenger seat of a car parked in Noroton Heights and then went into a store, returned about five minutes later, and it was already too late. The front driver’s side window of the 2015 Subaru Impreza was smashed and the cash was gone. The 36-year-old man told police that the incident occurred at about 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17, in the parking lot in front of Walgreens at 138 Heights Road. ____________

A car’s front passenger window was smashed and a laptop and pocketbook was stolen from the floor in front of the passenger seat last Wednesday evening, Feb. 8 in the parking lot of a business on Old Kings Highway North, police said. The car was parked while the owner, a 45-year-old Norwalk woman, was at the Old Kings Highway Tennis Club at 98 Old Kings Hwy. N. The woman arrived at 7:15 p.m. and discovered the theft and damaged car at 9:15 p.m.

There was no sign of a rock or anything else near the car that might have been used to smash the side window of the 2009 Lexus LS 250. That and the fact that the car was parked outside a recreational business is making police wonder whether the theft could have been perpetrated by the Felony Lane Gang, which targets parking lots connected to parks and fitness clubs.
