Theft from vehicles reported

Sunnyside police received reports of two thefts from vehicles this past Tuesday and Wednesday, but one was later determined to be a case of a misplaced item rather than a theft from an unlocked car.

The first was reported at 10:04 a.m. Tuesday by a resident in the 1500 block of Yakima Valley Highway, who told officers someone had broken into his vehicle either during Monday night or before 7 a.m.

The second suspected theft was reported at 12:51 p.m. Wednesday by a resident, who thought a credit card bill and a personal check were taken from his unlocked car while it was parked in the 500 block of Cemetery Road. As a precautionary measure, the credit card was canceled, but the items were later determined to be misplaced, rather than stolen.

Sunnyside officers also investigated a fire at 8:19 p.m. Wednesday in the men's room at South Hill Park, where someone had started a fire with toilet paper. Damage was estimated at $50.

From 8:41 a.m. Tuesday to 7:40 a.m. today (Thursday), Sunnyside police also investigated four automatic alarms, 10 animal problems, two citizen disputes, one civil problem, one family fight, two reports of harassment, one juvenile problem, two reports of loud music, one 911 hang-up call, four runaway juveniles, one suspicious person, six traffic problems, one report of vandalism and one violation of a no-contact order.

They also checked on the welfare of a resident, served seven arrest warrants and one court order, gave two assists to agencies and three to citizens, provided two extra patrols and one funeral escort and received two informational calls.
