Park City police probe keyed vehicle, ‘popped’ tires, stolen license plate
The Park City Police Department last week received several complaints about people intentionally damaging vehicles in apparent acts of vandalism or other sorts of cases targeting parked cars.
The cases were reported in different locations, including one that apparently occurred outside the Park City limits. It was not clear from public police logs if the cases were suspected to be related.
The cases included:
• on Saturday, April 20 at 12:14 p.m., someone reported a vehicle door had been vandalized with a key on Swede Alley. The Police Department indicated the case involved suspected criminal mischief.
• on April 20 at 12:11 p.m., the Police Department received a report of a broken taillight on a vehicle that was apparently intentionally broken. The police logged the report as suspected criminal mischief. The case was reported on Pheasant Way, a street in the Snyderville Basin rather than inside the Park City limits. It was not clear from public police logs why the case was reported to the Park City agency rather than the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
• on Thursday, April 18, someone reported a license plate had been stolen in Park City sometime before the 5:20 p.m. report to the police. The case was logged on Park Avenue, but it was not clear whether the plate disappeared on that street or whether the report was filed there. The police station is on Park Avenue.
• on Monday, April 15 at 9:22 p.m., a vehicle’s tires were reportedly “popped” on Woodside Avenue. The Police Department said the case involved suspected criminal mischief.
Anybody with information about the cases may contact the Police Department at 615-5500.
A critic of a Park City workforce or otherwise affordable housing project in Old Town said he is considering an appeal of the Park City Planning Commission’s approval of the development.
