Thief abandons Lexus after stealing key fob, wallet

MONROE, CT — Police officers responding to the call of a suspicious vehicle on Old Colony Road Thursday morning found a Lexus parked in the street with its doors unlocked and the headlights on.

Registration showed the owner lived at a house on the street. The resident told officers he did not move his Lexus.

Officers’ investigation found someone entered the unlocked vehicle in the victim’s driveway and moved it further up Old Colony Road.

The victim said his key fob and a brown leather wallet containing credit cards, a driver’s license and other personal information, were stolen from inside the Lexus.

A neighbor’s security camera showed the Lexus being driven up the street and the driver stopping, getting out of the vehicle, and getting into the passenger side of a second vehicle that pulled up alongside the Lexus, police said.

The video was not clear enough for a description of the suspects nor the second vehicle, according to police.

The incident is under investigation.

In a separate incident, on Thursday a Hidden Knolls Circle man told police someone entered his vehicle sometime overnight, though nothing was taken.

Fake I.D. used for withdrawal

A 42-year-old Monroe woman told police someone used a fake I.D. to withdraw $3,800 from her account at an M&T Bank branch in New Britain, according to a complaint lodged Wednesday.

M&T is working to resolve the situation and the victim was advised to monitor her bank accounts.

The incident is under investigation.

Fraud denied

An executive from NEHDS Logistics, 448 Pepper St., told police someone forged his signature, while trying to cash checks at banks in Iowa and Texas. However, the four mobile check deposits were flagged as fraud, according to police.

Police said the checks were made out to people whose names were unfamiliar to the executive and were not names of anyone employed by the Monroe company.
