His 2004 Lexus GX, 2013 Ford Explorer and 2018 Mitsubishi Outback all showed signs of being entered. Nothing was missing from the Lexus and Mitsbuishi, but three prescription medication bottles were missing from the Explorer, police said.

At 7:31 p.m. the same day, police were contacted by another resident on Midbrook Lane. The complainant told officers a 2012 Audi q5 and 2004 Chevrolet Suburban had been entered overnight. Nothing appeared to be missing from either vehicle, police said.
