A burglary crew in a vehicle with a telltale muffler problem was on the move and looking to score Friday, three men aboard attempting to enter homes in Dublin and Danville until startled residents scared them off.
A black Infiniti with a distinctive, loud muffler was reportedly chased out of Dublin after occupants wielding flashlights attempted to enter a residence on Signal Hill Drive only to be chased away by homeowners. Police reported the car was last seen heading northward on I680.
At approximately 9pm a car answering that description was reported outside a residence on Wakefield Court, a resident startled to find people with flashlights inside the home after breaking a rear window.
Police quickly flooded the area but at this writing (9:57pm) it was not known if the car had been located or what, if anything, had been taken from either residence.
