Police deal with midnight vandalism

A resident of Raymond Street called police around midnight to report a possible car accident after hearing a crash outside. However, after looking outside, the resident saw three “shadowy” figures moving on foot.

Police responding to the area discovered that the street signs and posts for Red Rose Circle and Musket Lane had been removed, and a neighborhood watch sign had been left on the ground. Additionally, boulders from a nearby Raymond Street residence had been moved from their property and left in the roadway.

A number of mailboxes were found with their doors open as well, but no additional damage was reported.

A few hours later police located a 19-year-old Darien man on Nearwater Lane who said he had been walking with two friends. He was headed in the direction of Old Kings Highway South when he was stopped. While speaking with the young man, they encountered his two friends, an 18-year-old from Darien and a 19-year-old Stamford resident, who claimed they were visiting friends on Red Rose Circle.

The group did not admit to any of the vandalism, and was not detained due to a lack of probable cause. Police were able to move the boulders out of the way of traffic, and notified the Department of Public Works of the damage.
