Burglary reported at Embody fitness in Darien
Darien police are investigating multiple burglaries reported at Embody Fitness in the last month. The complainant stated that she had noticed the cash-drawer short at times over the past month, but assumed it was an honest error in accounting.
On the morning of Feb. 26 she came into work and found that the drawer was short $109, but this time she was sure the cash and sales matched when the store closed the night before.
Video surveillance showed a suspect wearing a gray sweatshirt and black ski-mask using what is believed to be a spare key to gain access to the business around 7:30 p.m. the evening prior. The suspect is shown in the video removing cash from the drawer before leaving.
The complainant later called the investigating officer and inform them that they had reviewed earlier surveillance footage and saw what she believed was the same suspect again using a key to enter the business and taking cash from the drawer on Feb. 18 at about 6 p.m. It is unknown how much was taken in this incident.
A canvass of surrounding business was conducted, with negative results.
