DARIEN, Conn. A man stole $134 worth of baby formula from a Darien grocery store Friday after stealing a car in Stratford earlier in the week, police said. Employees at the Stop & Shop on Heights Road reported that at 7:45 p.m. a man set off the emergency alarm when he slipped out the back door carrying a basket with 10 cans of Gerber Good Start baby formula. He ran to a parked car near Edgerton Street. The employees wrote down the plate number. Police said the plate belonged to a gray 1995 Buick Century that had been stolen from a Stratford home June 22.
