Thieves were apparently foiled by a garage door when they attempted to steal an air compressor on Brandenburg Lane. According to reports from the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department, some one pried a large garage door from its locks but slid the door in the wrong direction when they attempted to enter the building. This caused the door to become unhinged and the door would only open about 8 inches. An air compressor had been pulled toward the opening, but it wouldn't fit through the gap, so the crooks couldn't steal it. Damage to the door was listed at $100. Authorities have not named any suspects at this time.
