NEW CANAAN -- Jewelry, silver flatware and cash were stolen from four homes on New Canaan's west side over the weekend, police said.
The suspects broke in through a door in three of the four burglaries, according to police.
One homeowner reported $5,420 worth of jewelry, flatware and loose change stolen from a Chichester Road residence at 11:23 p.m. on Friday. The homeowners, who admitted to leaving the door unlocked, left their residence at 2:30 that afternoon and returned at 11:20 p.m. to find their home, which does not have an alarm system, had been ransacked, police said.
Earlier that evening, at 6:13 p.m., a home alarm system alerted police to a burglary at a Woodbridge Circle residence. About $1,000 worth of jewelry was reported missing. An officer who responded to the incident reported that drawers in a bedroom where jewelry is kept had been left open. The homeowners were not home at the time of the burglary.
A third burglary was reported at 9:52 a.m. on Monday by homeowners on Bridle Path Lane. The residence was left unattended over the weekend while the homeowners were out of town.
A fourth burglary was reported on Monday at a residence on Wahackame Road.
Police believe all three burglaries were committed by the same suspect or suspects.
