A worker at New Canaan Lawn Equipment and Repair at 16 Cross St. reported to police on Nov. 26 that a large amount of clay material had been dumped in the parking lot.

Footage from security cameras showed a silver Nissan Rogue pulling into the lot on Nov. 25 and an older male opening the door, dumping the contents and leaving, according to police. The material was described by police as the kind "to absorb oil, like kitty litter."
