Darienites on three different streets in town reported entered or attempts to enter vehicles overnight from Friday to Saturday or from Saturday to Sunday.
Police described what happened with these accounts:
Overnight, Friday to Saturday: Fairview Avenue
At 6:42 a.m., a Fairview Avenue resident told police he saw a man wearing a gray parka trying to open the doors of his car and Jeep. The resident saw the man through his kitchen window. After the man found he couldn’t enter the vehicles, he left the driveway and headed west on the street.
Police went to the scene, but found nothing. When they canvassed the neighborhood, they found numerous unlocked vehicles — but it didn’t appear that any had been rummaged through. No one else in the neighborhood reported that vehicles were entered or items stolen.
Saturday to Sunday: Walmsley Road
At about 2:55 a.m., a Walmsley Road resident heard a car door slam and saw two people running from his driveway down the street. He called police at 3:02 p.m. The resident got in his car and drove down the road to try to find the pair.
He saw two males carrying boxes as they walked on Walmsley Road. When they realized they were being watched, they both fled onto Hollow Tree Ridge Road, where the resident lost sight of them.
The resident described one of the males as Hispanic, about 6 feet in height, wearing a tan sweater and dark pants; the other was described as a black male, much shorter, wearing dark pants and a dark hoodie.
Police canvassed the area and several surrounding neighborhoods, but didn’t see the suspects. The resident told police he was unsure about what might have been taken from his vehicle. Police are continuing to investigate.
Saturday to Sunday: Joseph Street
At about 2:15 a.m. on Saturday, a 2008 Jeep Wrangler was parked in the driveway of a home at 8 Joseph St.
Then, at about 8:15 a.m., the father of the driver saw that the left rear door of the Wrangler was open and the center console and glovebox had been rummaged through. Nothing was missing.
