At least six vehicles were stolen from Akron residences Saturday evening.
According to Akron Police Chief Kimm Nielsen, all vehicles’ keys had been left in the vehicles. However no apparent damage was done to any vehicle except for a 4×4 pickup which became stuck on a terrace, just south of the Akron Fire Station.
Here is a summary of the police calls for that morning:
• At 4:42 a.m., Sunday morning, Jeremy Hansen of 230 Main St. called authorities, reporting his motorcycle had been removed from his garage and pushed approximately one block away.
• At 6:30 a.m., Michael Huber, 400 Reed St., reported his Ford F250 4×4 pickup had been stolen. The vehicle was located a short time later, stuck on a terrace in the corn field just south of Torbert Boulevard. This pickup received some damage to its front end and running boards.
• At 9:23 a.m., Debra Moffatt, 221 Iowa St., called authorities, saying there was an unknown vehicle parked in her backyard.
The vehicle’s owner was out of town. Police returned the vehicle to the owner’s residence in the 200 block of Sargent Street. As of press time, the owner had not been notified of the incident with his vehicle.
• At 10:30 a.m., Tony Goodburn, 250 Reed St., told authorities his 1986 Ford pickup was missing. Police informed him his vehicle was at 400 Reed St.
