One Car Stolen, Four Broken into at Talmadge Hill Train Station Lots


Police are investigating four motor vehicle break-ins reported early last Friday morning in the Talmadge Hill Train Station parking lots.

It isn’t clear yet just when the break-ins occurred or what was taken, police said. They were reported at 6:30 a.m. on June 13—in one case, the owner of a car broken into told police that he’d parked just 15 minutes earlier.

The vandalized cars were located in parking lots on either side of Talmadge Hill Road and different tiers of the lot near the platform itself, according to police.

Here’s a summary of the vehicles broken into:

  • A 35-year-old New Canaan woman said her 2002 Honda CRV had its driver’s side front window shattered and its glove department opened. Nothing was missing from the vehicle though there was an iPad in it, police said.
  • A 45-year-old man found the rear windows on his 2001 Lexus smashed open and the glove compartment opened.
  • The ignition and a taillight lens were broken on a 2005 BMW motorcycle, and a bag attached to the rear of the bike had been unzipped and left open. The motorcycle is registered to an owner out of Seattle and it isn’t clear whether anything was stolen.
  • A 45-year-old New Canaan man found the trunk open on his 2013 BMW, and nothing immediately appeared to be missing.

Separately, at 6:30 p.m. on the same day, a black 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee was reported stolen from the lot. A 35-year-old New Canaan man said he’d parked there at 5:30 a.m. the prior day. The vehicle, worth about $11,000, had a set of Titleist golf clubs worth $300 and a gold wedding band worth half as much (in dollars) in the vehicle, according to a police report.

Police are investigating.
