Burglars Strike Mitchells of Westport, Again

WESTPORT, Conn. – It was a case of déjà vu for Westport police. For the second time in less than 10 days, Mitchells of Westport was the target of a smash-and-grab burglary.

At about 5 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to an automatic alarm at the store, located at 670 Post Road E., and found one of the front windows had been smashed. Handbags and leather belts were taken, Capt. Sam Arciola said.

On Feb. 19, several designer handbags were stolen from the store during an overnight burglary in which one of the front windows had been smashed out as well.

“Right now, we believe the two crimes are linked,” Arciola said. “We’re working closely with other jurisdictions that have experienced similar crimes.”

The exact number of items stolen Tuesday was not yet known, Arciola said. The store is conducting an inventory count, he said. Police were processing video surveillance captured during both break-ins, he added.
