GREENWICH, Conn. -- Two homes were broken into and a 2007 GMC Denali was stolen from a third home in a weekend crime spree in Greenwich, police said.
The first reported break-in occurred at a Pheasant Lane home when the homeowners returned to their home around 11 p.m. Greenwich Police believed the suspects were still in the area and called in other officers to flood the area. They also received the assistance of police K9 units from New Canaan, State Police, MTA Police and Westchester County, along with a helicopter unit from Westchester County to help in the search.
During a house-to-house search GPD officers located a second home that had been burglarized on Rockwood Lane Spur, the property boundaries of which backs up to the first reported burglary on Pheasant Lane.
Sunday morning a separate resident on Rockwood Lane reported that their 2007 Denali SUV that was unlocked and had its keys in it had been stolen from the driveway sometime overnight Saturday. This theft occurred a short distance from the two burglarized homes. Once the vehicle had been reported stolen, it was immediately located by "On-Star" abandoned on Long Island. The vehicle was successfully recovered by a local New York police department.
Despite the fact the suspects have eluded capture, Greenwich Police said they have developed solid leads in the case as additional police patrols remain in the area.
Police urge residents to lock their doors, activate alarm systems and make a home looked lived in and active. Also, also lock vehicles and never leave car keys in the home.
