A 33-year-old man told Darien police on Sunday, June 1, that someone had gone into the sport utility vehicle he had been driving and stolen $1,000 in cash, along with a credit card.
The thief didn't have to work hard at it, either: The vehicle was unlocked.
The victim said that he was borrowing the vehicle from a friend because his own vehicle was being repaired — but the stolen money and credit card were his own.
The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee had been parked on By Road at 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 31. At about 10 a.m. on Sunday, the man returned and noticed that the interior of the vehicle looked like someone had rummaged through it.
