New Canaan Man, 96, Reports Handgun Stolen from Home

A New Canaan man reported to police the theft of money and, more alarmingly, a weapon from his home last week, according to police. 

On Tuesday, August 13, a 96-year-old Harrison Avenue reported approximately $300 in cash had been stolen from his home, according to Sgt. Carol Ogrinc. He also reported the theft of a Smith & Wesson revolver, she said, valued at roughly $650. 

The items were last known to be in his home on Sunday, August 11. Police said there was no sign of forced entry into the home, but there had been workers coming in-and-out of the home. Ogrinc said an investigation is on-going.
