Police seek leads in rash of weekend thefts

Sunnyside police have investigated three burglaries during the past 72 hours.

Two of the burglaries involved storage units and one was a break-in at a residence. In all three cases, police currently have no leads or suspects.

One of the burglaries occurred in the 300 block of East Lincoln Avenue, in which it appears the thieves used a crowbar to gain entry, according to the police report.

A victim reported her shed was broken into in the 300 block of Grant Avenue, claiming multiple items were missing.

Thieves also reportedly hit the 700 block of McClain Drive over the weekend. However, police found no signs of forced entry. An x-box was the only item reported missing.

Sunnyside police officers are also investigating the report of two vehicles having been stolen last Saturday.

One vehicle was reportedly taken from the 100 block of North Sixth Street just after 8 p.m. on Saturday and a second vehicle was reported stolen from the 300 block of Grant Avenue Saturday night.

Officers also received reports of a theft of a cell phone and cash from the 2600 block of Yakima Valley Highway, a report of the theft of a recreational vehicle battery from the 700 block of South Fourth Street and the report of a stolen battery and fog lights from an unlocked parked car in the 400 block of Rouse Road.

Police also investigated a report of a counterfeit $20 bill having been passed at a Sunnyside business in the 700 block of Yakima Valley Highway. Police have a description of the person who allegedly passed the phony bill. He is described as a male, 20 to 28 years of age, with a pointy nose, wearing a Seahawk baseball cap. Anyone knowing of a person matching this description is asked to call the police at 836-6211.

In other weekend activity, police responded to 11 reports of suspicious circumstances, four business alarms, three residential alarms, one animal complaint, two reports of loud music, two reports of malicious mischief, five reports of disorderly conduct, six domestic violence reports and dealt with two reports of DUIs.

Police also provided two agency assists, five citizen assists, served one arrest warrant, handled two informational calls and made one welfare check.
