On Jan. 6, at the Metro Park & Ride in Woodinville, unknown suspect(s) smashed the front passenger window of a black Nissan Pathfinder. Police found the vehicle rear passenger door ajar with a backpack and jacket hanging partially out of the door. The owner of the vehicle, a Woodinville high school student, was apparently on a ski trip at the time.
On Jan. 7, unknown suspect(s) stole a CD player, CDs, knife, jacket, and ashtray from a vehicle parked outside a local indoor soccer center. The victim was sure the vehicle was locked, but found the passenger side door unlocked upon returning to the vehicle. No sign of forced entry was apparent.
