FAIRFIELD — Police are investigating a rash of car break-ins, as well as a car stolen from a local driveway, reported over the weekend.
The car, a 2015 BMW 428XI, was stolen from a Warner Hill Road driveway sometime overnight Friday and was recovered the next day in Waterbury. The owner had left the car unlocked and the keys in the cupholder, according to the report. Also in the car was a wallet, with credit and debit cards and $115 in cash. The debit card was used illegally at a Waterbury Shell station, police said.
Two other Warner Hill Road residents reported their unlocked cars were entered. A purse and wallet, containing several credit cards, and a cell phone were reported missing from one car, while a phone charger and TV mount were taken from another resident’s Range Rover.
On Bridget Lane, an unlocked car was entered and ignition key was taken, along with a wallet containing $20 in cash, gift cards and two sets of earbuds.
A Narrow Street resident reported an iPhone 6 taken from their unlocked car, and a Gorham Road resident said their car, again unlocked, was entered but nothing was taken.
A USB charger worth $25, and a $150 GPS unit was reported stolen from an unlocked car on Mill Hill Road.
Those thefts were all reported on Saturday morning, and another two were reported Monday morning — one on Robson Place and a second on Field Rock Road.
In the Robson Place incident, a purse and wallet, along with $100 in cash, and credit cards, were taken. On Field Rock Road, a Gucci bag and Louis Vuitton wallet, worth a total of $1,400, were taken. Again, the cars were unlocked.
