Three car burglaries were reported in Darien last week, police said.
Burglars stole owner's manuals from the cars in two of the incidents, according to the report.
During the first burglary, which happened between 9 p.m. Friday and 12 p.m. Saturday, a small leather case, chewing gum and the car’s owner’s manual were taken from an unlocked car parked on the 6700 block of Tennessee Avenue, police said. The items were worth about $35.
Between 4:30 p.m. Friday and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, a GPS unit, $5 in change and paperwork was taken from a car parked on the 700 block of 70th Street, police said. The victim didn’t know whether the car was locked, according to the report. The items were worth about $155.
Finally, the owner’s manual and insurance cards were taken from an unlocked car parked on the $500 block of Chestnut, police said. The items were worth about $15.
Officer Nick Skweres advises Darien residents to lock their car doors and remove valuables from their cars.
“Especially now that the weather is nice the bad guys get out more often,” he said.
