Investigations: SUV, Cash, iPhone, Flowers Reported Stolen


Police are investigating a pair of early-morning larcenies involving cars that officials say might be related.

At about 3:51 a.m. on June 13, a 55-year-old North Wilton Road man reported to police that he had been looking out his window when he saw someone standing in his yard, according to a police report.

The man went outside and saw the suspect—about six-foot-three, 200 pounds, a white man or woman wearing dark pants, a dark hoodie jacket and perhaps a face mask—who immediately ran away.

The man checked his SUV and it was missing $400 and a debit card, he said.

Then, at about 6:39 a.m. the same morning, police received a report of a stolen 2010 Land Rover from a Canoe Hill Road residence.

The SUV’s owner told police that he’d parked it the prior night around 11:30 p.m. and left his keys in the car, worth about $50,000. The car itself was recovered that night in Bridgeport, undamaged, police said.

Items missing from the car include $150 cash and an $800 digital camera.
