Saturday, April 14
2:47 a.m. — Wildwood Trail residents reported the possible attempted theft of one of their cars and the break in of the other, both while parked in their driveway. They had heard a loud engine revving sound at around 2 a.m. and looked outside to see their Dodge Durango traveling backward on Wildwood Trail. By the time the husband got outside, the person who’d been trying to drive the car was gone and the car was on a neighbor’s front lawn. The other car in the driveway had been rifled through and it appeared an iPhone charger was missing. Both cars had been unlocked. The keys had been accidentally left inside the Durango, the owner said. The reason it was being driven backward, he said, could have been a tricky clutch.
