Greenwich Police say two high-end vehicles left unlocked with the keys inside were stolen from their respective owner's driveways.
The owner of a 2011 Mercedes Benz E550 reported the vehicle stolen from the driveway of their Sawmill Lane home about 11:40 a.m. Aug. 21. "It was unlocked. The key was left inside," according to Lt. Kraig Gray.
A short distance away, at about 1:35 p.m. Aug. 21, a Montgomery Lane resident reported their 2010 Audi SUV had been stolen from the driveway. That vehicle also had been left unlocked overnight with the key inside, Gray said. The car was recovered the next day in Newark, NJ, according to Gray.
Gray said both thefts remain under investigation.
Police continue to warn residents to lock their vehicles at all times, set their car alarms—and never leave the keys inside. In mid-July, Greenwich police had received reports of eight vehicle thefts since June 1. There isn't a pattern to the thefts which have occurred both overnight and during daylight hours throughout town.
Police also are investigating the theft of a moped from the driveway in the 200 block of Byram Road. The two-wheeler, valued at less than $1,000, also was reported missing Aug. 21—at about 6:40 a.m.
