Many West Hartford residents were awakened very early Saturday morning – beginning anytime from 3-4 a.m. – by loud “techno” music that continued for an extended period of time, in some cases an hour or more.

A post to the Neighbors & Friends in West Hartford Facebook group from a resident of the Walden Street area garnered more than 150 comments from people throughout West Hartford, many of whom had also heard the music.

The music was heard throughout a wide swath of West Hartford – in the Buena Vista neighborhood, Duffy Elementary School neighborhood, near Sedgwick Middle School, near the Center, on South Main Street, on Mountain Road, in the Morley Elementary School neighborhood, and on South Quaker Lane – among other areas.

West Hartford Police confirmed that they received multiple reports from residents of loud music in the early hours of Aug. 29.  

“We were called by multiple residents, but were unable to locate anyone responsible,” Capt. Michael Perruccio said.  “We think it may have come from cars driving through neighborhoods.”  

Perruccio added that Hartford Police also reported similar incidents, “involving hundreds of vehicles that would blare loud music and flee the area prior to police arrival.”  

West Hartford Police did not have any further information, and in West Hartford it did not appear to happen again the next day.
