The rash of burglaries that prompted the Wilton Police Department on Dec. 22 to urge residents to secure their vehicles and lock their houses continued into Christmas Eve, Dec. 24.
Two homes were broken into by forcing doors open, apparently during the day on Dec. 24, on Riding Club Road and Cherry Lane, Capt. John Lynch said on Dec. 27. In one case, a loud alarm deterred the burglars before they could take anything. In the other case, police were still assessing what was missing.
