Police are investigating a case of trespassing at a Harrison Avenue residence on July 7, police said.

A 58-year-old man reported to police at 8:20 p.m. that he witnessed a vehicle pull into his neighbor's driveway at which point two individuals proceeded to exit the vehicle and approach the home’s detached garage, said Ogrinc.

When the neighbor called to tell the homeowner, who was away at the time, what had happened, the homeowner asked the neighbor if he could check the garage, said Ogrinc.

The neighbor reported that the vehicle, a grey Mercedes-Benz, was gone when he checked the garage, no one was there, nothing was missing, and there were several empty beer cans police said. 

The neighbor also said that the vehicle returned, but left the area when the driver saw the neighbor in the driveway, police said.
