11 motor vehicle break-ins, one stolen car in one night as Darien’s car burglaries continue
Once again, Darien was hit by a series of motor vehicle burglaries last week, police said.
One break-in attempt, 10 car burglaries and one stolen but recovered car the next street over — occurred all in one night, police said. Another car was burglarized two nights later, police said.
This time, thieves made off with a wallet, bank cards, cash, identification, a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses, and car documentation, in one overnight period, police said.
This was two days after various crimes were committed in Darien overnight on July 11 into July 12, including a gas station burglary, a stolen car, and several motor vehicle burglaries, police said.
