WESTPORT - A 50-year-old Norwalk woman has been charged in the hit and run of two parked vehicle on Riverside Avenue last October.

Anne Arnold, who was charged with evading responsibility, was released on a promise to appear in court on Aug. 2.

On Friday Oct. 25, at approximately 6:37 p.m. officers responded to the area of 512 Riverside Ave, on a complaint of a hit and run motor vehicle accident.

“It was reported that a vehicle had struck and heavily damaged two legally parked cars and subsequently fled the accident scene,” Westport police said in a release.

“During their on-scene investigation, officers were able to obtain a registration plate for the suspect vehicle. Computer checks showed that it was listed to an Anne Arnold, of Norwalk.

“Norwalk Police were contacted for assistance and responded to the residence, but had no contact with the vehicle or operator that evening. Westport officers responded to the suspect’s residence again on Saturday October 26, 2018 and located the vehicle in question.

“It had sustained heavy damage consistent with the previous day’s motor vehicle accident. Contact was made at the residence with Arnold, who admitted to being the vehicle operator as well as to knowingly leaving the accident scene on the previous day.”

An arrest warrant was prepared and granted for Arnold seeking the charge of evading responsibility.

On Saturday, at approximately 1:56 p.m., an officer on routine patrol observed a disabled motor vehicle on Post Road West.

Upon stopping to assist the operator, she was positively identified as Anne Arnold.

She was subsequently taken into custody for the active warrant for her arrest.
