Man Charged With Breaking Into Darien Homes

DARIEN, Conn. – A man found on the second floor of a Darien home by a resident returning home was charged Thursday with multiple counts of burglary, police said.

The resident confronted James Jackson, 47, of Richmond Hill, N.Y., and he turned and ran out of the Queens Lane house, still carrying items from the home, police said.

Officers arrived and took Jackson into custody following a brief foot chase.

While they were investigating the Queens Lane incident, a resident on Goodwives River Road called and said that a man had entered her home and fled when confronted, police said.

Police charged Jackson for that incident as well.

According to police reports, Jackson admitted to detectives that he was responsible for another burglary in Darien on May 15.

Jackson was charged with two counts of second-degree burglary, one count of third-degree burglary, first-degree larceny, fifth-degree larceny and two counts of possession of burglary tools. He is being held on a $150,000 bond and set to appear in court on June 8.
