Four bikes stolen in three days from Darien’s train stations
Four bikes were reported stolen from the Darien and Noroton Heights train stations over the course of three days last week, prompting an investigation by police. The first two victims reported their bicycles stolen from the Darien train station during the evening of Sept. 11. Both bikes had been secured to the rack at the train station with combination locks.
According to police, one of the victims had another bike stolen on Sept. 5 but chose not to report the incident. His replacement bike was a 24-speed silver mountain bike valued at $300 with the word “Gravity” on the frame. The second victim owned a mountain bike with a royal blue frame, valued at $110.
The next day another victim reported that her husband’s bike had been stolen from the Darien train station as well. She and her husband ride their bikes to the train together each day, and she said they locked both of them to the rack at about 7:30 a.m. She returned to the station first and found his bike missing, with the cut lock still lying on the ground. According to police the bike was specialized and worth about $550.
A fourth bike was reported stolen from the Noroton Heights train station on Sept. 13, and again the victim returned from work to find their bike missing from the rack. The lock was cut and left behind on the ground. This bike was valued at about $400. Police are continuing their investigation of the reported thefts.
