Convertible tops cut open during Park City vehicle break-ins
March 26, 2013
The Park City Police Department last week received at least two reports of vehicle break-ins involving convertibles.
In both cases items were missing when the break-ins were discovered.
On Tuesday, March 19 at 8:19 a.m., the police were told that a vehicle parked somewhere along Kearns Boulevard had been broken into. The convertible top had been cut open and compact discs were taken, the police were told.
Earlier that morning, apparently in a separate case, the police were told a convertible’s top had been torn and unspecified items were missing from inside. The earlier case was reported at 7:24 a.m. on Sidewinder Drive. The police were told the car alarm sounded at approximately 4 a.m., but the person did not observe anything suspicious.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, March 24, someone contacted the police from an unspecified location along Norfolk Avenue at 5:43 p.m. reporting that a person tried to break into a vehicle in the overnight hours. The person who contacted the police said they were warming up the car when the suspect attempted the break-in. The suspect left in a pickup truck, the police were told. The break-in attempt occurred at approximately 1 a.m., according to the police.
People with information about the break-ins may contact the Police Department at 615-5500 or the department’s anonymous-tip line, 615-5847. The department also offers an online tip form. The direct link is: https://www.tipsubmit.com/WebTips.aspx?AgencyID=994.
