Beginning November 8th, the city has experienced a rash of vehicle prowls and mail thefts.

We have evidence that these crimes are being committed by one or two groups of criminals. On November 16th officers recovered large amounts of mail that had been discarded by the suspect(s) which indicates the crime spree began in Shoreline.

These crimes have been occurring overnight and most of the vehicles have been left unsecured.

Locations of the vehicle prowls and mail thefts.

Remember to always call 911 if you see anything out of the ordinary. These criminals are looking for any opportunity to steal from you. Remove everything from your vehicle (even a quarter in the cup holder), obtain a locking mailbox, and communicate with your neighbors.

The Police Department has created a "Do it Yourself Crime Prevention Guide" that will give you some ideas in protecting yourself and your property, check it out on our website

Our street in Ridgecrest got hit a little over a week ago and they were able to open the locking mailboxes.

Our mailboxes were hit night before last on Perkins in Shoreline. Like the other commenter mentioned, they were able to break open our locked mailboxes.
