U-District car prowls may be the work of one group

February 13th, 2011 · 2 Comments

When you log on to the Seattle Police crime map, you’ll usually find plenty of car prowls in the U-District. Today, I counted at least 7 in just the past week. Now, there’s word that some recent car prowls in the neighborhood may be the work of one group. KIRO 7 reports that police have seen an increase in the number of car prowls in the U-District, Green Lake and Magnolia.  It also appears women who drive to parks are being targeted. A Volkswagen Jetta was spotted in some of the crimes with a “crew” of three women and four men.
