On Oct. 10, two homes in the 14800-14600 blocks of NE 198th Street were victims of car prowls. One resident awoke during the night to find his yard had been decorated with toilet tissue, but the next morning, his son found his 1987 Jeep Cherokee had been broken into, the CD player, CDs, and pager missing. Two doors away, a 1993 Honda suffered a similar incident, with a purse, stereo box, and speakers stolen. The total loss between the two houses was nearly $1,000.
At 5:20 p.m. on Oct. 11, a southbound automobile on SR-522 had its passenger side window shattered by what police believe was a BB gun. The car was approximately 100 yards north of the 195th Street interchange.
On Oct. 12, a .32-caliber revolver, two saws, and an impact wrench were stolen from a storage garage in the industrial park in the 19000 block of 244th Ave. Access was gained by prying the doors open. The loss was estimated at more than $400. A similar incident occurred on Oct. 5, though nothing was stolen and the owner subsequently nailed the doors shut.
On the night of Oct. 13, tools valued at almost $1,200 were stolen from a business in the 14200 block of NE 200th.
