10-02-11 04:37 hours – Sgt. B. Eidell – Burglary-forced entry-nonresidence-night
100 block N. Union Ave. – Received an alarm activation at Ron’s Car Care, reported to be an overhead door activation. On arrival police observed that the east bay door was up enough for a person to go under the door if they crouched. We also noticed that the west bay door was missing a Plexiglas panel from the bottom right corner. Police searched the garage and found no one inside. On the east side of the garage was a green Chrysler Concord with the driver side door left partially open. The interior light was on and the car key was in the ignition. This officer checked the interior and exterior doors and windows to the office and everything was secure. Eventually contacted the owner who arrived and checked the building. As of this morning nothing was found missing. It appears that there were at least two actors with one actor going to steal the green Chrysler while the second actor opened the east bay door. Upon opening this door the actor set off an audible alarm which most likely scared off the actors before they could steal the car.
