Prowler ransacks vehicles

Friday night October 17, 2008 several neighbors in the Capri Terrace area of west Gresham (NE 167th, north of NE Glisan) were victims of car prowls, including ransacking and theft.

One lucky neighbor reported that motion sensor lighting and the car's alarm scared the perpetrator(s) away from their vehicle before the prowler could gain access.

Don't be a victim

Capri Terrace Neighborhood Watch coordinator Glenn Mathew said "items we leave in our car might not be of great value to us, but beware that to the criminal, when they see anything (big or small) it is reason enough to commit a crime". Mathew recommends that loose change, CD’s, MP3 players, bags and boxes, even coats not be visable through your car windows.

Keep your eyes open

The best deterrent to neighborhood crime is an active Neighborhood Watch group.

Strolling Along the Slough

This Wilkes East Neighborhood website banner is a slice from a picture taken on a hot August afternoon while strolling the trail along the Columbia Slough adjacent to the northern boundary of the neighborhood. The Columbia Slough is a shallow, slow flowing waterway that parallels the Columbia River for about 18 miles from Fairview Lake in East Multnomah County through North and Northeast Portland to Kelley Point Park where the Slough meets the Willamette River.
