FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Fairfield police officers responded to two calls early Friday morning regarding cars being broken into.
The first call came from a home on Rena Place at approximately 2:15 a.m. where the resident said that he was getting ready for bed when he noticed that there was a light in one of the cars in the driveway.
When he went down to to inspect the light he found an orange flash light which didn't belong to him. On further inspection, nearly $5 in change and a $20 knife were missing from the Jeep. A Honda was also entered, and two iPods, a Touch valued at $200 and a Nano valued at $250 had been taken.
Both cars were in the driveway and unlocked.
Shortly after the police arrived on Rena Place, they received a call from a home on Toilsome Hill Road reporting that the garage and car had been entered.
The homeowner told police that the dog barking at approximately 2:30 a.m. had woken him and the sound of the car alarm alerted him to something happening in the garage.
He told police that the garage door had been closed but seemed to be pried open and the car inside had been gone through, but nothing was taken.
Police believe that the two incidents are connected and are investigating.
