Ferris Hill resident threatens to stab relative
A 60-year-old resident was charged with disorderly conduct Friday morning after threatening to stab a relative in their Ferris Hill Road home, according to New Canaan Police.
Police responded at 8:08 a.m. to a 911 call about the person who threatened to stab a relative.
The aggressor was ultimately transported to Norwalk Hospital, according to a police report.
Police withheld the name, gender, specific address, and other details of the arrested person and incident under a state law protecting the identity of domestic violence victims.
The person was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
Three car break-ins last Tuesday
Police are investigating three overnight car break-ins of unlocked vehicles Tuesday into Wednesday last week on West and Country Club roads and Brookwood Lane, according to New Canaan Police.
The three break-ins were close together enough that police consider them possibly related, New Canaan Police Lt. Jason Ferraro said.
A break-in was reported at 11:15 a.m. Sept. 2 by a 45-year-old West Road woman who said she left her car unlocked the night before. She became aware of the theft after receiving fraud alerts because of charges on her credit card, according to the police report. Taken from her car was her wallet, containing $200 in cash, and several credit cards, according to the police report.
At 2:12 p.m. on Sept. 2, a Country Club Road woman reported the theft of her purse from her unlocked car outside her home, according to the police report. She was alerted to theft by fraud alerts sent to her phone when her credit cards were used, according to the incident report. Also missing was $40 in cash and a key fob for her car and residence.
Police responded at 3:06 p.m. Sept. 2 to a report of the third break-in on Brookwood Lane, according to the report. A resident going out at 4 a.m. for a run noticed the car door was open, and the female complainant said a Victorinox watch worth $800 was taken from the closed center console, according to the incident report.
DUI for Stamford man
Police arrested a 30-year-old Stamford man and charged him with driving under the influence after he failed field sobriety tests on South Avenue, according to a police report.
At 12:53 a.m. Monday, Sept. 7, a police officer pulled over the car heading southbound on South Avenue after observing the vehicle swerve into the northbound lane, according to the police report.
During the stop near Colonial Court, the officer detected the odor of alcohol coming from the car, according to the report. The man, Matthew Hernandez, Weed Avenue, Stamford, failed field sobriety tests, and a breathalyzer test administered to him showed his blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit of .08, according to the report.
Hernandez was also cited for failure to maintain the proper lane, according to the report.
Hernandez was released on $260 bond, and was scheduled to appear in state Superior Court in Norwalk on Thursday, Sept. 17, according to the report.
Construction saw stolen
Workers reported the theft of a $500 chop saw from a home under construction on Kelly Green, according to a police report.
The DeWalt Compound Miter Saw was taken from a part of the unfinished structure that was not locked, according to the report. Workers told police they closed the doors to the home at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday Sept. 1, and came back to find the saw missing at 9:38 a.m. the following morning.
Stamford woman cited for pot possession, speeding
A Stamford woman was cited for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia during a motor vehicle stop on White Oak Shade Road after a speeding stop last Thursday morning, according to a police report.
Farha Raoof, 33, of Strawberry Hill Road, Stamford, was also cited for traveling unreasonably fast, according to the report.
At about 10:48 a.m. on Sept. 3, an officer conducting speed enforcement measured a car driven by Raoof traveling 41 mph in a 25-mph zone, according to the report.
The officer detected the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the car and summoned K-9 Officer Apollo and his handler to the scene to search the car, according to the report. The dog found marijuana in the driver side door panel, marijuana residue inside Raoof’s purse, a small pill bottle inside the spare tire compartment of the trunk that contained burnt blunt ends, and a multi-color glass pipe, according to the report.
