FAIRFIELD — A Marlborough Terrace home was burglarized while the owners were sleeping this weekend.
The homeowners called police around 7:45 a.m. Saturday when they awoke to find some of their belongings — including their 2000 Land Rover Discovery — missing. They said the burglary happened between 12:30 and 7:30 a.m.
Taken in the burglary, in addition to the SUV and a flat screen television, were the couple’s two iPhones. Using the locator app on the phones, police were able to determine the general area where the phones, and the Land Rover, were. The Land Rover, valued at $15,000, was recovered, although police declined to say where because the burglary is still under investigation.
Also taken were a $500 Wii game console, a Matthews bow with sight attached and about a dozen arrows, valued at $1,600, a $350 Bushnell range finder, a pair of RayBan sunglasses and Ralph Lauren wallet with $150 in cash.
The couple told police they were asleep in the bedroom with the door open, but the air conditioner was on and they believe that is why they did not hear anything. The report indicated a first floor window was forced open to gain entry.
Police said the incident is not considered a home invasion because the home’s occupants were asleep and unaware the burglars were in the house, and the burglars made no attempt to confront the residents.
