FAIRFIELD — Police are investigating a series of thefts reported over the weekend.
Two patrons of Public Storage, 1296 Kings Highway Cutoff, called police Dec. 2 to report their storage units had been entered. In one instance, nothing appeared to be missing, but in the second case, a $1,000 laptop computer, a 60-inch Samsung TV, valued at $600, a 42-inch Samsung, worth $475, a $500 Vita blender and a $300 hoverboard, are missing. In both cases, locks were cut from the storage unit doors.
A Longdean Road resident reported on Dec. 3 that her unlocked car was entered and a $250 Singer sewing machine was taken. The machine, she said, is unique because it has a honey-gold finish. She also said the machine was threaded with a fluorescent orange thread. Also taken was a $100 pair of Fiskars scissors and a $20 rotary fabric cutter.
Another Longdean Road resident called police, also on Dec. 3, to report two bikes were stolen from their front yard. The bikes were not locked.
On Dec. 5, a Winnepoge Drive resident reported their two unlocked cars were entered overnight. An HP notebook computer, valued at $350, was taken from one of the cars, and $20 in cash and a People’s United Bank checkbook from the other.
