Car break-in spree reported in central Ridgefield

More than two dozen vehicles were broken into in central Ridgefield — ranging from Tanton Hill Road over to Pin Pack Road — during the wee hours of Saturday morning.

According to one resident, at least three cars were emptied or rummaged through on Tanton Hill Roadby a group of thieves around 4 a.m.

“... I saw somewhere online that five more vehicles were broken into at 3:40 a.m. Saturday morning. Not sure of the neighborhood,” ,” the resident said. “Same thing happened on Pick Pack Road. At least two people’s cars were hit over on that street.”

The resident, who wished to remain anonymous, told The Ridgefield Press that her security cameras captured the face of at least one of the perpetrators.

“He shows his face and you can see someone in the car, the driver,” she said.

She said that the thieves stole several items from her car, including cash.

“... I know one person had their key fob stolen, another had perfume taken,” she said on Tuesday, Oct. 29. “Mostly it was petty cash — coins or whatever they could grab.”

“It looks like they spent a half hour here ransacking cars in various neighborhoods,” she said. “... It looks like about 30 vehicles were hit which is a lot.”

“ ... It’s so disturbing and so awful to think about,” she added, “someone standing on your property, going through your property.”
