Burglars break in, take nothing

A home on Lake Drive was broken into sometime in August, Darien police said, though nothing appeared to have been taken.

The owner of the home reported the burglary at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 27, after returning from a vacation between Aug. 9 and Aug. 27, according to Darien Police Sgt. Jeremiah Marron.

The resident found the back door of the home opened but not damaged, and the intruders possibly found the hiding place for an extra key outdoors, Marron said. Four first-floor window screens were damaged but didn’t appear to be used to enter the home, Marron said.

The intruders removed jewelry from dresser drawers and left them on the floor and also left personal papers strewn throughout the home, Marron said.

Members of the Darien Police Detective Division processed the scene for evidence, Marron said.

Unlocked car burglarized

An Outlook Drive resident reported her unlocked 2010 Ford Edge had been burglarized, with thieves taking about $8 in coins, according to Darien Police Sgt. Jeremiah Marron.

The female resident reported the crime Thursday, Aug. 27, after she spotted objects from her car in nearby streets during a walk, according to Marron.

Domestic dispute ends in assault

A 48-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman who live on Glenwood Drive were each charged Friday night with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, according to Darien Police Sgt. Jeremiah Marron.

Police withheld the identities of the pair, citing domestic violence confidentiality laws.

The woman alleged the man struck the side of her head; he countered that he had only attempted to block her punches, Marron said. Police observed the woman had a red ear and the man an injured lip, Marron said.

The man was released on $250 bond and the woman on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford.
