A burglar was spotted trespassing in a Wilton home this week thanks to a video recorded on the owner’s “nanny-cam.” The intruder is described as a white, possibly Hispanic, man with dark hair wearing a gray tank top, with tattoos on his upper right arm.

On Monday, June 10, a resident on Whipple Road was reviewing nanny-cam video recorded in their home when they noticed the man had illegally gained entry into the home around 3:12 p.m. At this time, the residents have not reported any missing property. The intruder was not caught at the scene, and remains at large.

A nanny-camera is generally used to surreptitiously record caretakers in the home, though it can also provide valuable information to police in the case of a break-in.

Anyone with information about this event is encouraged to call Wilton police at 203-834-6260. A picture of the intruder is availible online at WiltonBulletin.com
