DARIEN, Conn. -- A car was stolen from a driveway in Darien near where two suspicious men were seen looking through people's mailboxes, police said.

A 2011 Subaru Outback was taken from a driveway on Greenleaf Road sometime between 4 p.m. Monday and 8 a.m. Tuesday, police said. The car was parked in the driveway with the doors unlocked and the keys inside, police said. There were two other cars in the driveway that were also unlocked with the keys inside, but they were untouched. The stolen car is gray and valued at $18,000.

Around 4:45 a.m. Tuesday morning, a limo driver reported seeing two suspicious people on Christie Hill Road, which is near Greenleaf Road. The driver told police that he was on Christie Hill Road when he saw two men in hooded sweatshirts going through mailboxes. Police said he followed them for a little bit, but they ran away when they noticed him.

Police checked the area but were unable to locate them. They said that some mailboxes had been opened. It did not appear that any cars had been burglarized, despite the fact that many of them had been left unlocked with keys and other valuables inside, according to police.
