WILTON — Police are investigating a burglary that occurred Friday night at NAPA Auto Parts in the Robinwood Plaza on Routes 2 and 4.

Just before midnight someone entered a storage building owned and used by NAPA. The building is behind the business, police Chief Dennis Brown said.

An alarm warned Wilton officers there was a burglary in progress. When they arrived, they found a door open. Entry was gained when a lock was left unlocked, he said.

NAPA employees are taking inventory to see what was taken, he said. Police are not sure if the alarm or the arrival of the officers stopped the burglar.

The investigation is ongoing, he said.

Police are also investigating the use of a Thompson Street resident’s ATM debit card to pay miscellaneous bills, Brown said.

Apparently the victim had loaned the card to someone last summer to pay one bill but then discovered through a credit card statement last week that the card was used again without permission to pay bills amounting to $155.

Police have a suspect and charges will be issued, he said.
