NEW CANAAN — In the wake of another daytime burglary, New Canaan Police are recirculating an image of a suspect and asking residents of the Silvermine neighborhood to review outdoor surveillance footage from Friday, Feb. 18, hoping to develop information on the suspected culprit they believe possibly drives a Subaru or Audi sedan.
Police want residents to report any footage capturing a later model green Subaru Legacy or a silver or gray four-door Audi, two model cars they suspect burglars have used to commit recent break-ins.
At 1:49 p.m. Feb. 18, New Canaan Police were brought to a residence in the southeast part of Silvermine by a residential alarm and found the home had been burglarized, according to police.
Officers found a door forced open and jewelry apparently taken from a master bedroom, according to police. An estimated value for the stolen property was not immediately available.
The police-issued image of a bearded man in a blue windbreaker and jeans was originally circulated after two Feb. 3 break-ins on Butler Lane and Old Norwalk Road.
Residents should contact New Canaan Police detectives at 203-594-3520 with any information about footage or other tips.
