'Treja-Vu' — Yet Another Avalon Darien TV Burglary

Treja-vu all over again at Avalon Darien: Somebody's source for free flat-screen TVs.

Once again, large flat-screen televisions have been stolen from Avalon Darien -- the third television theft from a non-residential area of the residential complex since November 2012.

Once again, two 46-inch televisions were taken from one of the buildings at 137 Hollow Tree Ridge Rd. They are valued at $1,000 each. This time, the theft was from a room on the lower level. Back in November 2012, two televisions had been taken from the game room. That December, a television was taken from a model unit.

Once again, an employee discovered the theft in the morning. This time it was just before 8:22 a.m. on Monday, March 3. A worker who was emptying waste cans after a party found that the front door of the building was open and an interior door was unlocked.  The televisions had last been seen at about 4 p.m. the day before.

All in all, five televisions have been stolen from the complex in less than 17 months.

There was almost a sixth television stolen: Darien police said a third television remained in the same area on Monday, tampered with but not removed.

Avalon is a joke. The less condos in Darien, the better. We need more open space! Let Stamford and Norwalk cram themselves full. We are a suburb of a city, not a city. Avalon should of just been open trails, a dog park and bird sanctuary. We are bringing crime to our community people. In the words of Mark Twain, "Buy land, they're not making it anymore." C'mon Darien Land Trust, Make us proud!
