    Crime knows no boundaries.

    Stay alert and lock your doors & windows!


    String of Possibly Related Burglaries:

    Police believe the following four complaints could all be related. Police are limiting the details they release on the cases until further investigations are completed:

    -Police responded to an alarm on July 24 at 9:34 p.m. on Old Norwalk Road. Upon arriving at the scene, police found a screen had been removed from a window and the window was damaged where it had been forced open. The residents had left their house at approximately 7:15 p.m. that evening. Investigators are unsure if anyone had gained entry to the home, nothing has been reported missing.
    -Later that evening at 10:04 p.m., police responded to an attempted burglary on Ludlow Road. A window had been forced slightly open, causing damage tot he window frame. Police do not believe anyone entered the home. The 49-year-old resident had been gone since the previous morning. Nothing has been reported missing.
    -On July 24 at 10:40 p.m., police responded to another tripped house alarm on Norholt Drive. Upon checking the house, officers noticed a door was forced open. Police are unsure if the intruders entered the home as nothing has been reported missing.
    -While officers were responding to the alarm on Norholt Drive, they received another call at 11 p.m. from a resident in the vicinity of Summersweet Lane. The complainant said someone rang her doorbell and when she peered through her window she observed a white male standing at her door and another man hiding in her bushes.

    Yeah, that whole door thing' has become more risky. I use to never lock my doors and never think twice about it. The area I live in is pretty tame in comparison to others. Anyway, I answered the garage door which is a solid core fire rated style, so no direct view. Turns out, I ended up being somewhat compromised about a year ago, so a peep-hole is now on my task list. Hmm, I wonder how long I'll drag my feet with before I actually install it...

    New Canaan is one of the richest towns in CT with a median income in the neighborhood of $145K. Just goes to show that crime does indeed know no boundaries as mentioned above.

    I have never left my doors unlocked ever,when I had a wife and kids in the home,I drilled locking doors behind them,I was trained in Security and knew how many times people were robbed and never knew it,the thief would see a purse and sneak in the nearest door grab it and take off or worse
