Westport Police Search for Stolen Car in Storm

The snowy weather did not stop car thieves in Westport early today as police sought suspects who abandoned one stolen car and then apparently stole another in the downtown area.

Police said a stolen car was found abandoned and damaged on St. John Place shortly after 4 a.m. As police followed tracks in the snow, a short time later one officer spotted a white Jeep Cherokee speeding through the area.

Investigation led to a home on nearby Woods Grove Road where a homeowner reported his white Jeep Cherokee had been stolen from his garage.

Police issued a radio broadcast to neighboring police departments to be on the lookout for the vehicle with Connecticut plate 584MOM.

Winter Storm Warning Issued

UPDATE The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued an updated winter storm warning for heavy snow for Westport and area which is in effect from 6 p.m. today to 6 p.m. Monday.

The forecast for Westport and southern Connecticut called for snow mainly after 9 p.m. with new snow accumulation of 6 to 10 inches possible. Monday’s forecast called for an additional 3 to 7 inches for a total accumulation ranging from 9 to 17 inches. Private forecasts called for 10 to 14 inches in all.

Dizzy Bat Home Run Contest a Hit

WestportNow.com Image
More than 50 Westport girls from kindergarten through third grade attended Saturday’s Westport Little League annual Softball Jamboree at Staples High School. The event is intended to introduce the youngsters to the sport in a fun, party-like environment. The Staples softball team took charge of the day, running the Little Leaguers through a variety of fun activities and softball skills. For many, the highlight of the afternoon was the high school team’s dizzy bat home run contest. The older girls first placed their foreheads on the end of a bat, ran around it until they were dizzy, then had to compose themselves and see if they could hit the ball to the home run wall. Sponsors for the event organized by Steve Axthelm, vice president of softball for Westport Little League, were Ben & Jerry’s and Athletic Shoe Factory. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo
