UPDATE For the second time in eight days, Mitchells of Westport early today was the target of a burglar.
Police were called to the upscale store on Post Road East shortly after 5 a.m. after receiving an alarm. Bill Mitchell, one of the owners, said he could not say whether anything was taken because of the ongoing police investigation.
The burglar or burglars gained entry by smashing a window next to the main entrance—a window on the opposite side of the doorway that was smashed in the Feb. 20 break-in.
In that incident,. someone used a trash can to smash a window and steal a number of purses, a store employee said.
