Police Hunt for Suspect(s) Includes Helicopter, Police Dogs after Saturday Night Burglaries

On Saturday night, and shortly after 11:00 pm, a Greenwich family came home to a private residence on Pheasant Lane and found that their home had been broken into and burglarized.

According to Greenwich Police, the homeowners contacted the police who responded immediately, securing the residence.

Upon arrival of the patrol units, it became evident that the suspect(s) had most likely been interrupted in the commission of a burglary and possibly were still in the area.

Additional units were detailed flooding the area with patrol personnel both on foot and in vehicles. Four K9 Officers from surrounding jurisdictions (New Canaan Police, MTA Police, Connecticut State Police, and Westchester County Police) joined the search as well as a helicopter unit from Westchester County Police Dept.

During a house to house search, Greenwich officers located a second home that had been burglarized on Rockwood Lane Spur, the property boundaries of which backs up to the first reported burglary on Pheasant Lane.

On Sunday morning, a separate resident on Rockwood Lane reported that their 2007 Denali SUV (unlocked, keys within) had been stolen from the driveway during the overnight.

This theft occurred a short distance from the two burglarized homes.¬† Once the vehicle had been reported stolen, it was immediately located by “On-Star” abandoned on Long Island. The vehicle was successfully recovered by a local New York police department.

The suspects have thus far eluded capture, but Greenwich Detectives who have continued to work these open investigations have developed several solid leads. Additional patrols officers remain in the area and remain watchful.

Greenwich Police remind residents to remember to lock their doors, activate  alarms, make homes look lived-in and active.

Also, it’s important to always lock your car doors and remove the keys no matter where the car is parked.
