DARIEN, Conn. -- Jewelry was reported stolen from a home on Fairmead Road in Darien last week, police said.
The owner reported that the jewelry is believed to have been stolen in April, and she discovered it was missing in May, police said. She told police she waited to report it until she was sure that it was missing.

In May, the owner discovered that jewelry was missing from the cup, police said.
