Notice how the prowls are clustered together, suggesting someone’s doing a spree of prowls then getting out of dodge.
Which brings us to the single most interesting incident of all those reported above: the “recovered items” found on the same block as one of the prowls on Christmas Eve: A Mercer Island man, 60, reported finding stolen property dumped at the side of the road at 9:30 a.m. near his residence in the 4400 block of Ferncroft Road. The property belonged to victims of an Auburn car prowl. Items included a black leather brief case, prescription medication and hormone therapy patches.
Pros are at work here and they are using I-90 to their great advantage. Neighbors, let’s keep our eyes open for each other.
