Update 12/28:

Add another car prowl on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21, in the 10500 block of Fifth Avenue Northeast. Police also report a methamphetamine sale that night at a residence in the 200 block of Northeast 91st Street.


Sad but true.

On Christmas Day, at one in the afternoon, somebody stole a car from the 9000 block of 15th Avenue Northeast, according to police reports.

But most of the holiday action seems to have occurred on Christmas Eve eve.

On Thursday night, Dec. 23, a truck was stolen from the 800 block of Northeast 82nd Street, and another car there was broken into. A second car was stolen that night from the 7700 block of Second Avenue Northeast, and a third from the 9800 block of 15th Avenue Northeast.

Early that morning, Dec. 23,  burglars forced their way into a home in the 8000 block of 15th Avenue Northeast.

More recently – early this morning, Dec. 27 – a car was prowled in the 500 block of Northeast Northgate Way.

And on Wednesday night, Dec. 22, a car was broken into in the 9600 block of 12th Avenue Northeast and two more were prowled in the 300 block of Northeast Northgate Way.
