Coming off a high number of car prowls in the late summer and early fall, Pullman Police Cmdr. Chris Tennant warned people to secure their valuables, before leaving for break.

Tennant said most thefts result from leaving valuables visible in unlocked cars, breeding crimes of opportunity. While the number of prowls slowed in the last few months, he said they are still making arrests.

People have fallen victim to unique burglaries in recent months, Tennant said.

“We’re having some fairly unique residential burglaries,” he said, “where people are spending a lot of time making a mess of the place and checking the entire property.”

Tennant recommended residents lock their homes when leaving and communicate with roommates.
