Yakima Police Catch Car Prowlers

Yakima, WA - Police received several calls last night night from residents in central Yakima reporting car prowlers.  Around three o'clock this morning four people, three males and one female, ran from police in an alleyway by Custer and Roosevelt Avenue.  Two fled on foot, and two tried to escape in a white GMC Yukon.  Officers were able to catch the two in the Yukon, but the other two managed to get away.  Police say they weren't even trying to pull the SUV over, they were just driving by and the people in the vehicle panicked.  Police aren't releasing much information about the four suspects, but believe they have identified the two men that fled on foot.  Right now they say the four could be charged with malicious mischief.
