Car prowlers strike North Bend neighborhood in stealing spree

Police and opportunistic thieves alike had a busy weekend in North Bend recently. At least nine cars were broken into late Friday or early Saturday Nov. 8 or 9, but few items were reported stolen.

Fridays spree began in the neighborhood north of E.J. Roberts Park. Police received multiple car prowl reports, at 11:18, 11:31, 11:49 and 11:59 p.m.  The victims, most of whom had left their vehicles unlocked, called from the 800 block of Northeast Eighth Street, the 200 block of Northeast Sixth Street, the 500 block of Merritt Avenue Northeast, and the 600 block of Pickett Avenue.

On Saturday, police got a report of five more cars that had been targeted overnight, all in the 1100 block of Rachor Place North. Again, many of them had been left unlocked. Some of the items reported stolen included change, a diabetes test kit, and a satellite radio which was later found, dropped in the front yard of a home.
