Westport Burglar Turns Out to be Drunken Teen

WESTPORT, Conn. – A suspected burglar who entered the home at 20 Manitou Road in Westport on July 24 was not a burglar after all. Instead, police say he was an intoxicated teen who wandered into the house by accident.

During the investigation, police learned that the unnamed teen had been at a nearby house for a party. Police said the teen became separated from a group of friends while walking to another party nearby.

The teen reportedly told police that he became disoriented after getting separated from his friends and entered the home believing it was the location of the second party. He also told police he had used his cell phone as a light while walking through the house.

After being confronted by the homeowner, the teen ran from the area and was later picked up by a car, police said. No charges have been filed against the teen at this time.
