Gun, TV, Camera Snatched in Home Burglary

Sometime between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday, an Old Kings Highway South home was burglarized.

A homeowner on Old Kings Highway South who had been at work for only 3 1/2 hours returned home Friday to find the house burglarized.

Darien police said the homeowner left at 10:30 a.m. and returned at 2 p.m. and found he was suddenly missing:

  • A Sony digital camera (valued at $1,200)
  • His 29-inch flat screen television (valued at $400)
  • A Colt black-powder revolver (valued at $400)
  • $200 in change
  • A duffel bag
  • A comforter

It appears that a door was left unlocked at the house while the resident was gone.

is there no gun law in ct saying you have to keep you weapon locked in a case when not in use?

Wow...I sure hope the thief has no idea how to use a black powder revolver (super old school).

CT law says you have to keep handguns secured from minors. This may shock you but black powder firearms are not classified or regulated as firearms by the federal gov't. They do not require a background check, though ownership by those prohibited is still a crime. Why? Because they're not used in crimes. Far easier to steal a modern firearm.
