DARIEN, Conn. -- A $700 laptop was reported stolen from the desk of an employee at a Darien marketing firm last week.
Police were dispatched to 320 Post Road at around 5 p.m. on Friday, July 7 in regards to the stolen laptop. Police said that an employee of a marketing firm told police that the MacBook Pro had been taken from her desk drawer. She had last seen it on June 30 at around 5 p.m., but didn't notice it was missing until around 10 a.m. on July 6.
Police said the area around the employee's desk is secured, with access only given to employees and cleaning personnel via a key-fob. There were no signs of forced entry, and no other items of value had been taken, police said. The IT department for the marketing firm said the laptop was loaded with software that would notify the company when the laptop was turned on and connected to the internet. Police said that they had not yet received any kind of notification that it was turned on.
The employee told police that the building's exterior doors had been having problems locking, and that one morning a vagrant had been found sleeping in the building lobby. Other tenants were questioned, but no other thefts were reported. The theft remains under investigation.
