Ridgefield police have confirmed that a car was stolen from the driveway of a Poplar Road home overnight between Sunday, Aug. 19, and Monday, Aug. 20.
The incident is the ninth case of a stolen car in Ridgefield this year, according to Capt. Jeff Kreitz.
A report said the car, a 2016 Nissan Rogue, was unlocked and that a car key was left inside.
