Car prowler caught with evidence of thefts

A 20 year-old Newcastle man was arrested May 3 in North Bend, when deputies captured him with evidence of recent thefts, and in the act of committing another one, around 1 a.m. at Northeast Eighth Street and Thrasher Avenue Northeast.

The man was captured during a car prowl, when a citizen, who owned the car, watched him approach and enter the car. The citizen called the police and deputies contacted the man, who was in possession of items he’d stolen from the neighborhood. He said he was visiting a friend who was house-sitting for a relative in North Bend.

He was booked into the Issaquah Jail for investigation of charges of possession of stolen property and vehicle prowling. Both charges are gross misdemeanors.
