GPS equipment stolen in break-ins

by Jay Hamburger OF THE RECORD STAFF

Thieves stole Global Positioning Systems during at least two vehicle break-ins last week, the Park City Police Department said.

The most recent case was reported on Sunday, Jan. 3 at 9:23 a.m. According to the Police Department, a Hyundai Santa Fe was parked on the 1400 block of Empire Avenue when it was broken into.

Meanwhile, on Friday, Jan. 1 at 8:01 a.m., someone reported a Dodge Neon had been broken into and a Global Positioning System had been taken. The car was on Park Avenue.

Public police logs did not provide details on either of the cases and it was not clear whether they were related. Empire Avenue and Park Avenue are parallel streets that are three blocks apart.

The Police Department received several other reports of break-ins last week, but it was not clear whether goods were taken from inside the vehicles. Some of the others included one on Jan. 3 at 7:29 a.m. on the 2200 block of Monitor Drive and one on Dec. 29 at 11:08 a.m. on Kearns Boulevard. The Dec. 29 case occurred the night before the report was filed.

Anybody with information about the break-ins may call the Police Department at 615-5500 or the department’s anonymous-tip line, 615-5847.
