A pair of serial escapee dogs from Deep Valley Road on Sept. 13 were found roaming on St. Luke’s School property, where the Animal Control section of the New Canaan Police Department picked up and later impounded the border collie and Australian shepherd. Their owner was fined a total of $334, for two counts each of allowing a dog to roam and failure to license. ***

Thefts from vehicles in New Canaan were up 60 percent year-over-year in August—from 15 to 24—according to NCPD Chief Leon Krolikowski.
