At least five cars were broken into on Friday in Edmonds-Woodway High School parking lots during the E-W/Meadowdale game, reports the Edmonds Police Department.
All of the "car prowls" occurred between about 7 to 10 p.m, says Edmonds Police Sgt. Mike Blackburn.
The follow are practical car prowl prevention tips from the Edmonds Police Department:
- Avoid parking locations isolated from public view
- Do not leave any item in plain view inside the vehicle; the fact that an item may not be of value to you does not mean it’s not a temptation to a criminal
- Lock your vehicle when it’s left unattended
- Be aware of your vehicle make, model and license number in case police attention is required
