A more than twofold spike in larcenies boosted the crime rate in Wilton during 2017, according to the police department’s annual report. There were 125 larcenies last year, compared to 50 in 2016, and 57 the year before. These, the report says, can be attributed in large part to thefts from motor vehicles, something that is being experienced statewide. Wilton police received 45 reports of thefts from motor vehicles, a 96% increase from the previous year.
Overall, there were 252 offenses classified as “crimes against property” according to preliminary data for 2017, up sharply from 155 in 2016 and 113 in 2015.
