For Immediate Release


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.  


On September 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:


·        1 Count of Burglary 2rd Degree

·        2 Counts of Burglary 3rd Degree

·        1 Count of  Larceny 3rd   Degree

·        1 Count of  Larceny 5th Degree

·        1 Count of  Larceny 6th Degree


Vanzuuk was 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.
