This morning around 3 a.m., police responded to the North Greenbrier Drive area on a suspicious activity complaint.
According to police, a resident was awakened when his motion detector lights were activated. When he looked outside he noticed a male figure standing in his driveway. He yelled out and the man walked away.
Officers were in the neighborhood within minutes and called Shelton for a K9 response. The dog tracked a short distance up the road then the trail went cold leading officers to believe there was a car involved.
There is no description of the man or a possible vehicle.
Neighborhood patrols are being beefed up as there have been some thefts from unlocked cars also reported recently.
Asst. Police Chief Anthony Cuozzo said residents are urged to lock their doors and to remove all valuables from unattended vehicles.
Thieves look for cell phones, GPS units, laptops and loose change and think nothing of entering your car to get what they want.
Cuozzo said always report suspicious activity of any kind in your neighborhood.
“If you see anything that seems out of place, such as a car driving slowly down your road, an unfamiliar person walking in your neighborhood or anyone peering into cars, call the Orange Police Department at 203-891-2130 to report it, and we’ll send someone to check it out,” he said.
