Attempted vehicle break-in at Buffalo Wild Wings According to the report, on Saturday, August 17th, at approximately 12:21 a.m., police observed a teen male, wearing a backpack, walking from the area underneath the Pine Lake Av. overpass towards the parking lot of Buffalo Wild Wings. As police continued to watch the suspect, they observed him walk to the passenger-side of a blue Honda sedan. The teen was observed doing something with the door window of the vehicle, while periodically stopping to look around. A few minutes later, police saw the interior dome light come on inside the car as the suspect leaned inside. At this time the vehicle's car alarm went off and the headlights began flashing. The suspect ran north from the vehicle and after a short foot pursuit, was apprehended by police. While being placed into custody, the suspect, Dominique Wilson, 19, of Michigan City (IN), allegedly told police he was breaking into the vehicle because he was hungry and only wanted some change so he could buy a bag of chips. During a search of Wilson's person, loose change was found inside his pants pocket that he denied knowledge of. The owner of the Honda was located and confirmed the vehicle had been entered, but that nothing appeared missing at the time. He advised the windows were left down slightly, but the doors were locked. Wilson is charged with Attempted Theft, D felony.
