New Canaan Week in Review

A look at the top news from the last week.

New Canaan Week in Review

In case you missed a day, here's a quick roundup of all the lead stories from New Canaan this week. There's always a lot going on, so take this opportunity to catch up if you missed something!

In police news, a big story that blew up this week was the arrest of  three New Canaan realtors who were charged in a scheme in which a home that allegedly none should have been involved with was being rented and in the process of being sold. One of the realtors' representatives—from a PR firm, not legal counsel— responded to the charges. Also this week, a  New Canaan police officer was injured in a collision with a car while he was riding his personal motorcycle home from a court appearance. New Canaan train service was  interrupted  this week when a Darien teen had his Jeep struck at a crossing in Stamford. 

In local business news,  New Canaan Olive Oil will soon join the ranks of new stores in town. Unfortunately, that addition is offset by the  closure of Caroline's Creperie, unexpectedly announced this week. A native New Canaan man  joined the team at neighboring Stamford's Half Full Brewery. And the New Canaan Post Office preparing to close by January 2014 after having the lease signed out from under them  announced a public meeting seeking comment from the public for the September 10 Board of Selectmen meeting.
