A man was charged with larceny after he was found behind the wheel of an alleged stolen vehicle in Fairfield County.

The incident took place in Darien around 1:40 a.m. on Friday, May 13.

Troy Bentinck, age 18, of Brooklyn, was arrested after a Darien officer spotted a vehicle secluded behind Fisherman’s Net located on Old Kings Highway, said Sgt. Dan Skoumbros, of the Darien Police.

While checking the vehicle the officer found Bentinck reclined in the driver's seat, Skoumbros said.
