Police Investigate a Burglary on Old Zoar Road

Officers responded to reports of a burglary, vandalism and a neighborhood dispute.

Burglary on Old Zoar

Cash and jewelry were reported stolen in a residential burglary on Old Zoar Road on Sept. 19.

Police said the homeowner came home at around 5:52 p.m. and entered his house through the garage. He noticed the front double doors to his home were partially open, then went upstairs to find his master bedroom had been ransacked, according to the report.

Officers investigating the burglary also found that a rear slider door was open about four inches.

Police believe the burglar(s)'s main point of entry was through the front door sometime between 7:45 a.m. and 5:52 p.m.

No estimated value for the jewelry and cash was given and an inventory of the homeowners' belongings is underway to determine if anything else was taken, police said.

Hit & Run

Police said tire tracks on lawns in the 200-block of Pepper Street led officers along a trail that included three damaged mailboxes and three posts from the fence bordering Rails to Trails, according to a report filed early Sunday morning.

A total of 51 feet of tire tracks was left on the lawns, police said.

Anyone with information on the vehicle or the driver who caused the damage is encouraged to call the Monroe Police Department at (203) 261-3622.

A Shattered Window

A Nutmeg Circle woman told police Saturday that someone shattered a window of her vehicle when it was parked in a common area near the community mailboxes at Northbrook Condominiums.

Police said nothing was missing from inside the vehicle and that no other cars were damaged. The victim does not know why someone would want to vandalize her vehicle, according to the report.

A Loud Leaf Blower

A man on Monroe Turnpike received complaints from his neighbors over what they believe is an excessively loud leaf blower.

On Sunday, the neighbors told police they tried to talk to him and that he was uncooperative. They also said they wrote to town officials to complain, according to the report.

Police said the man with the leaf blower told an officer that he has one day off a week, which he uses to clean his yard and he asked that the complainants stay off his property.

Throwing Rocks

A 42-year-old Norwalk man complained about youths throwing rocks in the 400-block of Main Street at 12:44 p.m. Saturday after one rock skipped in the road and hit his car.

Police said three 16-year-old males told officers they were throwing rocks at a bees nest and did not know the rocks were going into traffic. Officers responding to the complaint saw a large bees nest in the area, according to the report.

The driver said he wanted the small chip on the front underside of his bumper fixed and one of the teens' mothers told an officer she would arrange for payment for the damage, police said.
