A bicycle valued at $500 was stolen sometime during the day on Monday, June 2, from a Noroton Heights Railroad Station parking lot.

The owner had left the black bike locked to a bike rack at about 5:50 a.m. that day and returned at 6:45 p.m. to find it missing without a trace. There was no evidence of the lock left behind.

The bike was on the "southbound" (actually westbound) side of the tracks, the side nearest Heights Road. A $20 headlight was also attached to the bicycle.

Unlike some Connecticut railroad stations, there are no surveillance cameras at either Darien station.

Last October, new racks were installed that are shaped to make it much easier for a bike owner to lock the vehicle twice, using different kinds of locks, police have said. That only helps prevent theft if a bicycle owner uses two locks.
