An 85-year-old Sleepy Hallow Road man reported that his 20
sets of Towle King Richard silver place settings had gone missing,
authorities reported this week.
According to Sgt. Carol
Ogrinc, New Canaan police received a call on Nov. 12 at approximately
9:48 a.m. about a larceny that occurred at the home. Ogrinc said the man
remembered seeing the silverware sets about a month prior and first
suspected them as having been stolen on Nov. 9, but thought maybe he'd
placed them elsewhere in his home at first. When he couldn't find them,
he reported the loss to police, Ogrinc said.
unable to find any signs of forced entry and the man wasn't having any
work done at the home, so there was no one with access coming or going
at the time of the loss. Ogrinc said 20 full sets were taken, including
knives forks and spoons of assorted styles and uses.

home was unavailable.
