BEACON FALLS — Police are investigating the late-night theft of two cars from homes less than a mile apart.

Police reported a black 2007 Acura MDX with the license plate number 852SED was stolen from 171 Feldspar Ave. at about 1:45 a.m. July 31. Police said video surveillance from the home captured what appeared to be a full-size, four-door sedan drive up to the corner of Edgewood Drive and Feldspar Avenue. An individual got out of the car with a spare key to the Acura, police said. The spare key was taken on July 29, police reported. The person took the Acura, police said, using the spare key, and both cars fled the scene east on Bethany Road.

A 2002 gray Honda Civic with the license plate number 7AFDX6 was stolen from the driveway of the home at 15 Avenue B. the same night. A canvass of the neighborhood yield no results, police said.
