WATERFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – Residents of one Connecticut town say their neighborhood has become like the Wild West on weekends, with people riding dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles illegally on their property.

Waterford police are trying to contain the riders, but they often don’t stop for police and have no license plates for identification.

WVIT-TV reports that the riders appear to be minors, and operate at high speeds. The riders are also often unregistered and uninsured. Resident Joe Parise says they know they can escape into the woods, so they’re almost impossible to catch.

Parise says he knows police are trying their best, but worries about accidents.

Waterford police are warning the public to stay off private property.
