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.
