Assisting New Canaan

Wilton police on Feb. 10 detained individuals suspected by the New Canaan Police Department of committing a larceny in New Canaan.

Around 10 p.m., New Canaan police reported to area police agencies that a robbery had just occurred within their community, and gave a description of their suspects and a car. Later, it was learned the incident was a larceny, not a robbery.

Just before midnight, a Wilton police officer saw a 1998 Honda Accord that fit the description turning off Route 7 into the Wal-Mart plaza near Norwalk. The officer detained the individuals until New Canaan police arrived. Stolen items were found in the Honda and were turned over to the New Canaan Police Department.
