The Herald published a short article concerning car prowls in the city of Snohomish. According to the article, drivers left their cars unlocked, making it easy for prowlers to gain access to the inside. In at least one case, a credit card and a signed check were stolen from one victim.

According to a posting on Facebook by the Snohomish Police Department, it has several suspects in custody and has recovered some stolen property.

The Snohomish PD encourages its citizens to lock their cars and not leave valuables showing inside parked cars.

Note: For several years local police departments and the Sheriff’s Office have been encouraging car owners to lock their doors and not have anything showing inside. It seems that if a thief sees anything that might be of value, he/she will break in and take it. It might seem like a bother, but leaving things of value in your car only give these thieves an easy opportunity to take it. Don’t give them that opportunity.

Also, if your neighborhood has been experiencing car prowls, this might be a time to talk to your neighbors and to encourage each other to call 911 for any suspicious activity. Your call could stop a car prowler from victimizing more people.

Here is a Tip Sheet from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office that you can pass to your friends and neighbors:

Also, car thefts are a problem in Puget Sound. Here some recent information about car thefts and what you can do to prevent it:
