Greenwich cops recover car stolen out of Ridgefield
A Honda sedan that was stolen from 619 Danbury Road in Ridgefield on Feb. 22 was found abandoned in Greenwich six days later.
According to a report, Norwalk police received a call about two men driving around in a white 2014 Honda Civic LX who were trying to break into parked cars around 11:35 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27.
Police spotted the vehicle but were unable to stop it. Officers pursued the vehicle onto the southbound lane of I-95, but ended the chase near exit 6, “due to safety concerns,” the report said.
Greenwich police later found the car, abandoned by the two suspects, in the early morning hours of Feb. 28. Police determined the car had originally been stolen from Ridgefield.
Norwalk police are still trying to locate the two men involved in the attempted motor vehicle break-in and car chase, the report said.
Ridgefield police Lt. Shawn Platt said the white Honda had been stolen from the parking lot of the Terraces at Ridgefield, a condominium complex located at 619 Danbury Road, during the early morning hours of Feb. 22.
The keys were left in the vehicle, and police do not have video surveillance of the car theft.
Police do not have any suspects at this time, Platt said.
According to Ridgefield police, there were eight instances of stolen cars in town in 2018. In many cases, the cars were stolen after the owners left the vehicle unlocked and with the keys in the ignition, or inside the vehicle. Thieves typically targeted cars parked overnight in residential driveways.
