  1. Whenever you get more details, let us know.
    I feel a bit unnerved with this turn of events, as I’ve always found this to be a rather nice section of town.

    I assume this must have been a big guy. Like a 12-Volt or something.

    …but then there was talk of a “private car” involved. Instantly it raised my suspicion, that we may be dealing with one of those oversea foreign car battery’s, sporting 400 Volts, or more.

    I would certainly be searching “Fort Wayne Electric Car Charging Stations” from my browser, if i were a part of the Metropolitan Police Service.
    ..possibly dispatching an Officer of the Law to each of the 21 hits!

    I hope my tip helps the community turn up something.
    This could most certainly add fuel to the argument for combustion engines, if this were to get out.
