Greenwich Police report that over the weekend two cars were stolen, including an Alfa Romeo on Otter Rock Drive in Belle Haven that had been left unlocked with keys inside.
Lt Mark Zuccerella said the fast car went missing around 3:00am and was later spotted by police in New York state.
“It may be involved in an incident where it was pursued by the New York State Police, and shots were fired at the troopers during the pursuit,” Zuccerella said, adding that upon entering Connecticut shots were reported to have been heard by a local resident.
“Connecticut State Police arrived on scene and located a spent bullet casing on I-95 near Exit 2,” Zuccerella continued, noting Connecticut Sate Police are investigating the shooting.
The car was later recovered in Stratford.
A second car went missing in the overnight hours on Sunday, a Silverado stolen from Cos Cob Avenue, which had also been left unlocked. That car was recovered in Stratford as well.
Both car thefts are under investigation.
Also, over the holiday weekend there were several larcenies from motor vehicles. All had been left unlocked.
The thefts included daytime incidents at Tod’s Point and Locust Road. Other incidents occurred at Pleasant Street, Meadow Wood Drive, Winthrop Drive and Shore Road.
Lt Zuccerella said cash, purses, credit cards, and handgun magazines were items stolen from the vehicles.
