A 39-year-old resident of Searles Road told police that about 15 items of jewelry kept in a brown, silk, padded bag in her bedroom were missing and appeared to be stolen.
Darien police gave this account of the matter:
The woman had last seen the jewelry on about Feb. 2, then found one item up in her attic on March 3. She checked her bedroom for the silk bag and found that the other pieces were missing.
Other than family members, the only people who had access to the attic were people working in the home -- her nanny and some exterminators from a pest control company. The exterminators had been in the home on several occasions.
Darien police detectives are continuing to investigate the matter.
