Thief steals car engine parts

December 4th, 2012 by Doree

Charlie tells us someone stole a bunch of engine parts from his 1994 Honda Accord, sometime between Nov. 19-20.

(T)hey cut out the radiator and fan assembly, and stole the ignition wire set, and wiper blades. In the process of getting the parts they damaged many more components. The car was parked under a street lamp in the 9700 block of Phinney Ave.

We’ve heard of plenty of car prowls in the area, but usually for items inside the car, not car parts. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Car prowls in north Greenwood

December 31st, 2010 by Doree

Carrie sent us a note about a series of car prowls on her street sometime Wednesday night or early Thursday morning:

(O)ur car, as well as our neighbors car and 4 additional cars down the street got broken into overnight last night (On Palatine Ave. N, between 105th and 117th). We never leave anything of much value in our dodge neon but apparently this person needed a spring jacket, a hat, and a first aid kit, because that was all that was taken from our vehicle. everything looked as if it was gone through as the car was pretty tossed around, but none of our spare change was taken, and they even left a $1 bill laying outside the car in the broken glass. Our neighbors car had a GPS, as well as a few other “valuable” items in it, and they were left untouched.
