FAIRFIELD Conn. – Car break-ins were reported at a Fairfield car dealership, at homes on Meadowbrook Road and Old Mill Road and at two businesses on Wednesday and early Thursday morning.
The service manager at Devan Infiniti on Commerce Drive reported damage to four cars in the business’s lot early Wednesday morning. A hole was found in the fence surrounding the lot, and windows were shattered on three new models and one used car. Words were also scratched in one of the new cars.
Investigators believe the intruders were looking for a tire key so they could remove the wheels from cars. About $6,600 in damage was reported to the cars and the fence.
Thieves were successful in taking the wheels from a car on Meadowbrook Road the next night. A resident reported Thursday morning that all four tires were swiped from a Honda parked at their house. A passenger side window was also broken.
A car was stolen in an incident on Old Mill Road early Thursday morning. The owner said the car, with the keys inside, had not been garaged. The car is described as a blue 2011 Volvo XC90 with a license plate reading CHTHUM. Anyone who spots the car should contact Fairfield Police at 203-254-4800.
Car break-ins were also reported at Marshall’s and Fairfield Cinemas Wednesday night. At Marshall’s, a 10-inch-by-10-inch piece of road curbing was thrown into the car’s window. A Garmin GPS unit was the only thing missing. At Fairfield Cinemas, a passenger window was shattered, causing $500 in damage, and a cell phone taken.
