FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A bike stolen from a house on Algonquin Road on Friday was found in a neighbor’s garage, where a more expensive model went missing, Fairfield police said.

The case was one of several bike thefts in the Brooklawn area over the holiday weekend, police said.

Just after midnight Saturday, a neighbor called police to report that the bay door on his three-car detached garage was open and windows had been smashed.

Upon investigation, the man reported that his $500 mountain bike was missing and a green bike of lesser value had been left in its place, police said. That bike had been reported stolen from a neighboring home a day earlier, police said.

Later Saturday morning, a resident not far away on Brooklawn Avenue reported a $400 bike stolen from his property, where someone forced entry into his garage overnight, police said.

On Sunday evening, a resident of Old Oaks Road reported a $200 grey-and-red mountain bike was stolen from his garage.

Sometime between 11 p.m. Saturday and 6:30 a.m. Sunday, someone stole a 10-speed bike worth $4,500 from an unlocked, detached garage on Ridgely Avenue. The owner was staying with a family member and had stored the bike in the garage, police said.
