A 2017 Honda Accord parked in a lot downtown was broken into and parts were stolen from it — including the trunk lid — while the owner, a 75-year-old woman, was visiting a spa. Darien police gave this account of the incident:

After two hours in Lanphier Spa at 20 West Ave., the owner came out to her silver-colored Honda at 1:10 p.m. on Thursday, April 6 to find the lid of the trunk removed. Looking at the car further, the woman, a Stamford resident, realized that the driver side door lock had been forced open and her steering wheel airbag was missing. She immediately called police, who saw that the trunk lid had been removed from the assembly arms. The rear license plate was attached to the trunk lid and was also gone. No other vehicles in the area had been disturbed, and thefts (of any type) from vehicles in that parking lot are extremely rare.
