Park City vehicles, some unlocked, targeted by burglars

The Park City Police Department last week received a series of reports of vehicle break-ins, including a case involving the loss of more than $1,000 worth of tools.

Some of the cases were clustered in Park Meadows, according to Police Department logs. The vehicle doors were unlocked in some of the cases, the police were told. The cases included:

• on Sunday, Aug. 25 at 3:45 p.m., when the police were told burglars might have targeted two cars in a driveway on Holiday Ranch Loop Road. It was not clear from public police logs when the possible break-ins occurred. The police were told three cars were in the driveway at the time. Someone went through the glove compartment of at least one of the vehicles, according to public police logs. A grocery bag was stolen, the police said.

• on Aug. 25 at 2:01 p.m., the police were told a Jeep was broken into on Little Kate Road. The glove compartment and the console were locked, the police were told. The person who contacted the police was unsure whether anything was taken from inside the vehicle.

• on Aug. 25 at 10:51 a.m., the police were told someone went through two vehicles on Holiday Ranch Loop Road. Nothing was taken from at least one of the vehicles, but unspecified items inside were moved around, the police were told. Public police logs did not provide information about the other vehicle.

• on Aug. 25 at 10:20 a.m., the police received a report that a vehicle on Holiday Ranch Loop Road was targeted. The police were told tools and unspecified equipment were stolen. The loss totaled more than $1,000, according to public police logs. The vehicle, a 2000 Toyota Tundra pickup truck, was unlocked at the time the goods were taken, the police said.

• on Monday, Aug. 19 at 9:19 a.m., the police fielded a report of a vehicle burglary on Park Avenue that occurred several days prior to the call to the police. The police were told $25 and sunglasses were taken. The vehicle was unlocked at the time, the police said.

The Police Department, meanwhile, on Wednesday, Aug. 21 at 8:49 p.m., received a report from someone indicating someone attempted to break into a work van on Prospector Avenue the previous two nights.

The police have long cautioned people to lock vehicles and ensure valuables inside are not visible, saying the suggestions are two methods to thwart burglars.

Anybody with information about the cases may contact the Police Department at 615-5500.
