Kennewick Car Prowlers Hit Multiple Cars in One Night

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick Police say several car prowling incidents Monday night into Tuesday morning are a good reminder not to keep valuables in your car. 

Officers say someone broke into a woman's car on the 800 block of S. Adler Street and stole several debit and credit cards, and WIC coupons from the center counsel. 

Police say the next incident happened on the 5500 block of Hildebrand Boulevard, where someone opened an unlocked car and took a $3000 saxophone. 

The next car prowl was reported off the 100 block of Irvine Place, where officers say someone stole saddlebags from a man's motorcycle. Police say one bag was carrying a jacket worth a few hundred dollars. 

Officers say a man reported a fourth car prowl at La Sarena Hansen Park Apartments on 4th Avenue. He told police someone went into his truck and took bank receipts and paper that contained his personal information. Officers say the man thought his truck had been locked, but there were no signs of forced entry. Police say a stereo and tools in the truck were left untouched. 

Kennewick Police want to remind you not to leave valuables unattended in your car, and to never leave your car unlocked. Officers say thieves are opportunists who are always on the lookout for an easy heist. 

"Overall so far this year, reported car prowls are down 25% in 2013 as compared to the same time period last year. We still have room for improvement. Please call when you see someone suspicious in your neighborhood and when you leave it lock it" says Sergeant Ken Lattin of The Kennewick Police Department.

    KENNEWICK: Good news for all of you bargain shoppers out there, Goodwill is opening a brand new store in Kennewick sometime next year.
