Park City police receive more tire-slashing reports

The Park City Police Department last week received reports of slashed tires and vehicle break-ins, continuing a series of cases in recent weeks.

Vehicle break-ins are regularly reported to the police in Park City, but complaints about slashed tires are rare.

There were at least two reports of slashed tires last week, including one that also involved a break-in as well. On Friday. Oct. 21 at 12:15 p.m., the police received a report of two slashed tires on a truck on Sidewinder Drive. On Monday, Oct. 17 at 11:52 a.m., the police were told a back tire on a vehicle was slashed two nights prior to the report on Prospector Avenue. The vehicle had also been broken into, the police were told.

On Thursday, Oct. 20 at 7:48 a.m., meanwhile, a vehicle burglary was reported on the 200 block of Daly Avenue. Someone apparently rummaged through a glove box but did not take anything, the police were told. At 7:45 a.m. that morning another vehicle burglary was reported on Daly Avenue. Public police logs did not provide details about the 7:45 a.m. case.

On Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 9:30 a.m., someone on Sunset Court told the police a vehicle had been broken into two night before the report. A wallet, prescription medicine and camping gear was stolen, the police were told.

The reports of the slashed tires followed shortly after a series of similar cases the previous week. The earlier cases included incidents on streets like Gold Dust Lane, Little Kate Road and Prospector Avenue.

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