From Condom Caper to Chewing Gum Theft?

Did a young male switch from stealing condoms to stealing gum? Was a Norwalk man so blitzed he couldn't get safely on the roadway from a parking lot? Did a Guilford woman steal almost $1,000 from a department store?

 

A Fairfield Cumberland Farms employee told police a young male reportedly attempted to steal condoms, but after the employee said she'd call police, the suspect returned the condoms and may have made off with gum instead. Once out the door, the suspect sped off on a green motor scooter.

An out-of-state complainant called Fairfield police this month to ask them to check on her deceased parents' home, which was listed for sale and supposed to be unoccupied. According to police, the daughter was taking care of the utility bills and noticed last month's bill was much higher than the previous month. Police checked on the home and found a woman was indeed living there, and she had found the home listed for rent on Craigslist. The complainant had not agreed to sublet the home. Police are investigating.

There was nothing terribly unusual when, according to Darien police, 14 envelopes, apparently taken from mailboxes, were found in Darien near the New Canaan border. What was bizarre was that at about the same time, about four miles to the north in New Canaan, according to police there, mail and packages from doorsteps were taken—and some of the packages were then left at other homes in town.
