In Weston: Stolen items may connect to Wilton
While responding to a complaint about a domestic dispute, Weston police uncovered much more at a Weston home — “hundreds and hundreds of stolen items,” according to Weston police Chief John Troxell.
Some of those stolen items may have come from Wilton.
An active police investigation is ongoing, and a Wilton detective has been in touch with Weston police, but so far, none of the stolen items have been positively identified as coming from Wilton, Lt. Donald Wakeman said on Monday, Nov. 4. Police are still reviewing the hundreds of items recovered.
No arrests regarding the stolen items had been made as of Wednesday.
The incident leading to the discovery of the stolen items began Friday, Nov. 1, around 3 p.m., when a 9-1-1 domestic dispute call was received by the Weston Communications Center.
Officers arrived at a home at 126 Georgetown Road, and in the course of events arrested the tenants of the property, Kathlene Falcone, 32, and Joshua Bamman, 38. They were charged with disorderly conduct and assault in the third degree.
Chief Troxell explained that when officers arrived at the scene they observed objects outside the home they believed had been reported stolen in Weston in the past month.
While searching the property and the basement — which was searched because an outside door to it was open — officers saw additional items they believed had been reported stolen.
Police ultimately uncovered “hundred and hundreds of stolen items,” the chief said. “We found everything from furnaces to fine art.”
In addition to Wilton, police are investigating whether some of the items are from a number of other towns, including Westport, Ridgefield, Easton, and Redding.
