Darien residents on edge after attempted home break-in

Neighbors are on edge after an attempted break-in this weekend on Dew Lane in Darien.

Police say that someone attempted to break into the home, but was likely scared off by the alarm system and got away with nothing.

Officials say that the break-in may be connected to those in recent months on Valley Forge and Pembroke roads, Mansfield Avenue and Nature's Way.

Investigators say they believe the roads are chosen due to their proximity to the Merritt Parkway for a quick getaway.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Darien Police Department at 203-662-5300.
