Car Break Ins at Dog Park

Neighbors: Here is an ALERT from a neighbor about an occurrence which took place at a popular local dog park so please be aware:

My son and daughter-in-law took their dog to the dog park at Mill Creek on December 6. When they returned to the car, one of the side windows was smashed, and my daughter-in-law’s purse was stolen. The window of another car in the parking lot was smashed as well. They called the police and filed a report. The officer told us that the same thing had happened two weeks earlier. So the takeaway is “don’t leave anything of value visible in your car and lock the doors” especially when the car is in a place that is somewhat  isolated.
