Thefts Reported at Train Station

A bicycle was reported stolen Sept. 20 from the parking lot of the Noroton Heights Train Station in Darien. The owner locked the bike with a cable on the westbound side of the station at 6 a.m. When the owner returned at 5:10 p.m., the bike was gone. It is a new Kronan replica of a 1940s-style bicycle, valued at $500.

A car was stolen Saturday from the eastbound parking lot of the Noroton Heights station. The owner of a 2004 Toyota Sierra parked the car at 2 p.m., and it was gone at 9 p.m. when the owner returned. The car was left unlocked, with the keys in the center console.

Also from the police blotter:

• George Moschos of Stamford was arrested Tuesday on charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, as well as violation of a traffic sign, operating a vehicle while on a cell phone, driving with a suspended license and failing to return a license upon suspension. Police stopped Moschos at 4 p.m. when they observed him talking on his cell phone and proceeding straight in a right-turn-only lane. Upon searching the vehicle, officers found blunt shavings, rolling papers, a baggie with marijuana residue and an aluminum Pringles container with a false bottom. The container held four small baggies with about 5.3 grams of marijuana, according to police reports. Moschos, who was on probation, was arrested, and posted a $5,000 bond. He is due to appear in court Oct. 1.

• Shayne Smith was arrested Wednesday on charges of possession of marijuana and misuse of a license plate. Police stopped Smith on Old Kings Highway for having the wrong license plate on his 1997 Chevy Tahoe. Police say Smith appeared nervous and allowed officers to search his car. They found blunt shavings and a green bag that was emitting the odor of marijuana. Upon inspection, the officers found 3 grams of marijuana. Smith was given a misdemeanor and a summons to appear in court.

• A car was broken into at a private residence on Talmadge Hill Road between 5 p.m. Sept. 22 and 7 a.m. Sept. 23. The break-in was not reported until Sunday because the owner went out of town. Police say the 2005 Audi A6 was left unlocked. Golf-related items, including clubs, wedges, shirts and bags, were reported missing, worth a total of $21,500.
