Wallyhood reader Jack dropped us a quick note about a car break-in that happened on Sunday night:
The window of our car was busted out late last night, and an emergency kit was stolen. The car was parked on Latona Ave. NE just south of the intersection with 44th. Several other cars were nearby but left alone. Our car was therefore targeted, probably because the emergency kit (stored in a very cheap-looking backpack) was visible in the back seat. The thieves broke the window quietly, as none of the neighbors were awakened, even though one set of neighbors sleeps within about 20 or so feet of the spot the car was parked. They probably therefore have a specialized punch for the purpose. The same neighbor mentioned above had his car broken into a week or so ago, so this seems like a pattern around here right now. Neighbors may therefore want to make sure to leave nothing in their cars overnight, while keeping an eye out for prowlers, especially on weekends.
Thanks for the safety reminder, Jack!
