FAIRFIELD — Police are investigating reports of cars broken into overnight Monday at three locations.
A Yarrow Road resident reported two unlocked vehicles were entered. Taken was $80 in cash, prescription pills, a DVD player, and a wallet with credit cards and a Social Security card. One credit card was used early Monday in Bridgeport at Red Box, McDonald’s, a gas station and Walgreen’s before it was canceled, police said.
Another unlocked car, on Sedan Terrace, was entered and less than $5 in cash taken.
The third break-in incident was reported on Colony Street, where two unlocked vehicles were entered; reported taken were a cordless screwdriver and a DVD player.
On Tuesday, police received a call from a Colonnese Road resident, whose unlocked Honda Pilot was entered and two boxes of cash taken.
The boxes contained $55 and $59, police were told — money the complainant’s daughters were collecting for charity, according to the report.
FAIRFIELD — Danish and other pastries were reported stolen from outside Pine Creek Deli on the Post Road early Wednesday.
The morning delivery appeared to have been stolen around 4:40 a.m. by juveniles on scooters, according to the report.
