The victim/owner of the car told the officers that he saw three black males (no further description) trying to break into his car. They were not successful because the owner scared them off when he came outside to see what they were up to. The officers found damage to the driver’s side door lock, but they could not determine if the suspects were trying to get into the car to steal it or its contents. The vehicle was processed for latent evidence and a canvas of the neighborhood was conducted, both with negative results.
