Police urge public to help stop car prowls

GRANDVIEW – Police in Grandview are urging citizens to lock their vehicles and keep valuables in their homes instead of their cars, or at least out of sight, after another small rash of vehicle prowling hit the city. Three incidents were reported over the weekend and another two yesterday (Monday).

Police received a report yesterday of a vehicle prowl in the 1000 block of Powell Street. Tools and electronics were stolen from the vehicle.

Yesterday, police also received a car prowl report from the 500 block of Concord Avenue. Someone entered an unlocked vehicle and stole a Garmin GPS unit.

Police also recommend keeping porch or driveway lights on and ask people to call police if they see suspicious people or activity in their neighborhood.

Late last night officers also arrested a female driver on suspicion of DUI after her vehicle left the roadway and struck a fence at Compass High School.

Police are also investigating a report of a hit and run accident in the WalMart distribution center parking lot yesterday afternoon. Video footage of the incident is being reviewed.

Last night a man was asked by police to leave a business in the 800 block of West Wine Country Road after the workers reported the man was harassing them.

Since yesterday morning police have also handled three animal problems, four traffic incidents, five reports of suspicious activity, two reports of harassment, a noise complaint and a DUI.

In that time officers also provided two agency assists, fielded an informational call and arrested two persons wanted by authorities.
