A reader reports that Monday morning, October 15, 2018 two car prowlers and probable mail thieves, each with a bicycle, worked NE 166th St off 15th NE around 0140. 

They stopped and inspected the CMBs indicating mail was a target and entered one car.

He captured images of them on video and shared them with the Shoreline Police when he reported the crimes.

One was wearing a large backpack and the other had a grocery bag over his handlebars.

They looked at the locking Community Mail Box but did not attempt to break in to it. They did prowl a car. Other neighbors in the vicinity reported their cars being prowled.

Police always recommend locking vehicles and never leaving anything of value in the vehicle.

Thieves usually have a route that they work and unlike the daytime package thieves, they don't return to the same place so warning the neighbors after the fact does little good.
