Reader reports vandalism at N.E. 95th and 12th N.E.

Carol emails us news about an attempted vehicle  prowl Wednesday at Northeast 95th Street and 12th Avenue Northeast.

We parked (and locked) our truck off the alley behind the property about 2 p.m. on June 20, 2012.  When we returned about 7:30 p.m. to get something we had forgotten we found the key wouldn’t go into the lock.

Discovered that someone had used something, probably a screwdriver, to try to open the lock. Scratched the door and the entire lock was loosened and pushed into the door.

We notified our renter so that if the truck goes missing, she would know to call us and the police. Also wanted her to be aware for her own vehicle safety as well as neighbors. We were surprised this happened in such a short period of time and during daylight hours!

The map at right shows all car crimes – stolen vehicles and vehicle prowls – reported to police so far in June. There are a dozen incidents – some of the icons represent more than one crime.
