Pandemic Normal: More Unlocked Cars Stolen in Greenwich

On the morning of May 7, Greenwich Police midnight shift officers were able to disrupt larcenies from unlocked motor vehicles and possible car thefts in the area of Pemberwick.

No one was arrested. The suspects headed over the line into New York and Greenwich Police alerted New York authorities.

Three unlocked cars left with keys inside were stolen in two parts of town during the early morning hours of Tuesday, May 5.

According to Lt Mark Zuccerella, an Acura was reported stolen from Grey Rock Drive in Glenville, a Toyota was stolen from Fletcher Ave, and an Acura was stolen from Northfield Street.

All three cars were recovered in Bridgeport and five juveniles were subsequently arrested, according to Zuccerella.

Also, on April 29 a Subaru stolen from Pine Street and a car stolen from Naugatuck were both involved in a crash in Westport. The stolen cars crashed into a Westport Police patrol car.

Arrests were made in connection with the Naugatuck car, but not the stolen Subaru from Greenwich, which is still unaccounted for.

On May 2, juveniles tried to steal a Porsche from an open garage on Edgewood Drive in Greenwich, but were unsuccessful. They left the Porsche running inside the garage.

Also on May 2, an Audi was stolen from Round Hill Rd was recovered in Waterbury.

Both the Porsche and Audi were unlocked and had keys left inside.

Police also received three calls reporting larcenies from vehicles on April 30 – one on Pine Street, one on Beech Street, and one on Hawthorne St South.  All the vehicles had been left unlocked.

There were two commercial burglaries reported last weekend  – one at the BP Gas station on East Putnam Ave and Sound Beach Ave and one at 1155 East Putnam Ave.

“We are working leads and the investigation is moving along well,” Zuccerella said.
