WILDWOOD - At approximately 10:30 a.m. Jan. 1, the Wildwood Police Department received a 911 call reporting a subject attempting to steal a motor vehicle in the 100 block of East Hildreth Avenue.

According to a release, officers arrived and learned that the victim started his vehicle and returned to his residence while allowing the car to warm up. In the meantime, the actor, Danial Dombkowski, 29, of Wildwood, entered the unlocked vehicle and began backing out of the parking space when an alert neighbor confronted him.
