Darien police received reports of burglaries Saturday afternoon, Dec. 18 from two different businesses in town. One, on the Post Road, was missing some petty cash; at the other, on Old Kings Highway South, a safe was found on its side in a hallway.
Police didn’t say how much petty cash was taken, or whether anything was stolen from the Old Kings Highway South location, nor did they name either business or even give its exact address.
Police detectives went to each location and processed the scene for evidence. Police said investigations are ongoing in each case.

A cleaning crew told police officers that when they arrived at the business, they found the safe in the hallway. The business owner or manager told police that several drawers in his office were open. Surveillance camera recordings show a male using a flashlight at 6:35 p.m., Friday and flipping over the security cameras.
