Re: Norwalk Man Arrested For Several Overnight
Vehicle and Home Burglaries.
Issued by: Lt. Jeremiah P.
Darien, CT- In late August of 2017, the
Darien Police Department investigated several overnight car burglaries, car
thefts, and the overnight burglary of home on Noroton Avenue. During the home burglary, the suspect stole
two laptop computers while the residents were sleeping.
On August 30,
2017 this agency was contacted by the Greenwich Police Department which
indicated that they had arrested a suspect in a car that had been stolen from
Darien. The suspect was identified as
Kurt Vanzuuk, age 35, LKA 1 Linden St. Norwalk, CT. The vehicle he was driving had been stolen
from a Rocaton Rd. home two weeks earlier.
The vehicle was unlocked and the keys were in it at that time.
During a search of the stolen vehicle,
officers located clothing, personal checks, and two laptop computers. Darien Police Detectives were able to
determine that the clothing was stolen from an unlocked vehicle at an
additional Noroton Ave. residence on August 26, 2017, and that the personal
checks were stolen from an unlocked vehicle at a Tanglewood Rd residence on
August 28, 2017. It was also confirmed
that the two laptops were those that were taken in the overnight burglary of
the Noroton Ave home on August 21, 2017.
28, 2017, Darien Detectives applied for and were granted an arrest warrant for Vanzuuk
for the overnight residential and vehicle burglaries. Due to the fact that Vanzuuk had remained in the
custody of the CT Department of Corrections since August, arrangements had to
be made for him to be brought to Stamford Superior Court to face the Darien
charges. On November 20, 2017 at
10:00am, Vanzuuk was arrested by Darien Detectives for the following:
Count of Burglary 2rd Degree
Counts of Burglary 3rd Degree
Count of Larceny 3rd Degree
Count of Larceny 5th Degree
Count of Larceny 6th Degree
issued a $40,000.00 bond and remains in the custody of the State. He will appear in again court for the Darien
charges later in the month.
