An attempted break-in and other similar cases were reported to Archbold police last week.
Donald E. Pierce, 30, Fox Chase, told police that between 9:30 and 10:09 pm, Tuesday, Aug. 14, while he was inside his residence, someone tried to pry open the door.
About two days later, at about 1:15 am, Thursday, Aug. 16, a second attempted break-in occurred. Pierce said a subject fled the scene in a green compact car.
At about 11:30 pm, Thursday, Aug. 16, Carlos Reyes, Jr., 38, 710 North Defiance Street, reported there were lights in his driveway; then, someone walked onto his property and into his backyard.
The unknown person was pursued, but Reyes said he could not get close enough to get a description.
It is not known if the lights in the driveway were connected with the unknown person.
