Police working on weekend incidents of theft, animal cruelty

WILTON — Police are investigating the theft of an all-terrain vehicle and dirt bike from Frechette’s Ski-Doo on Route 2  between 6 p.m. Friday and 8:45 a.m. Saturday.

The owner arrived Saturday morning to open the business and found the items missing, police Chief Dennis Brown said.

The 1988 Honda Blaster ATV, with a 200cc engine, was spray painted black with red, but the original color was yellow, he said. It is valued at $500.

The lime green dirt bike, a Kawasaki KX with a 50cc engine, was missing a headlight and was valued at $850. It doesn’t need a key to start, Brown added.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Police Department at 645-3876.

Police are also working on an animal cruelty case that started Sunday when off-duty police Detective Rick Billian saw a female kick a beagle dog three times on Main Street at around 2 p.m.

He saw her pull on the dog leash and kick the dog hard, Brown said. Billian has turned the case over to officer Josh King who handles animal complaints. He is conducting interviews and expects to file charges, Brown said.

She should be kicked! That poor dog! They should have published her name so everyone will know exactly who she is! She probably beats her children if she has them.

One sorry human being.

How about someone kick her a--- a few times on Main St in downtown Wilton? I'm sure you'd get a line to form to start. The dog only knows what you teach it; so if he doesn't act well; guess who's fault that is? I hope this poor dog gets taken away from this sorry excuse for a human being.

This is about what I was going to write. I wish her name was published but her friends and neighbors already know who she is and the word will get around. Someone should have reported her sooner. From reading the papers, the towns in this area are becoming lawless. So many break-ins and stealing.
