Greenwich shopper confronts potential car thief; he flees but is arrested

A 53-year-old New Canaan woman shopping in Greenwich in the late afternoon of Aug. 14 was surprised to approach her 2013 Range Rover on Greenwich Avenue and see a man sitting in the driver’s seat. She’d previously put packages into the SUV and her keys in the cup holder, but then left the vehicle briefly.

Rather than back away, she went to the vehicle and tapped on the window, according to Greenwich police. The startled man, identified as Raymond A. Tejada, 24, of Bronx, N.Y., exited the vehicle, walked off, got into an Acura with tinted windows and left the area.

Police were able to use surveillance video of the incident, and five hours later spotted the Acura back on Greenwich Avenue. Raymond Tejada was charged with criminal attempt at first-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny. His brother, Ronald A. Tejada, 20, was charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny.

Both have Aug. 31 court dates.
