Norwalk man arrested for Darien car theft charged for additional burglaries
A Norwalk man arrested for stealing a car from a Rocaton Road home in August has also been charged in connection with multiple overnight car burglaries and a home burglary committed in Darien during a week long period.
Greenwich police arrested Kurt Vanzuuk, 35, on Aug. 30 after determining the car he was driving had been stolen from a Rocaton Road home in Darien two weeks earlier. The vehicle had been left unlocked with the keys inside overnight. During a search of the stolen vehicle, officers located clothing, personal checks, and two laptop computers.
Darien Police Detectives were able to determine that the clothing was stolen from an unlocked vehicle at a Noroton Avenue residence on Aug. 26, and that the personal checks were stolen from an unlocked vehicle at a Tanglewood Road residence on Aug. 28. It was also confirmed that the two laptops were those that were taken in the overnight burglary of a Noroton Ave home on Aug. 21.
On Sept.28, Darien detectives applied for and were granted an arrest warrant for Vanzuuk for the overnight residential and vehicle burglaries. Due to the fact that Vanzuuk had remained in the custody of the Connecticut Department of Corrections since August, arrangements had to be made for him to be brought to Stamford Superior Court to face the Darien charges.
On November 20 Vanzuuk was arrested by Darien detectives for the following: one count of burglary in the second degree, two counts of burglary in the third degree, and three separate counts of larceny in the third, fifth and sixth degree. Vanzuuk was issued a $40,000.00 bond and remains in the custody of the State. He will appear in again court for the Darien charges later in the month.
