Rental car broken into, and ice and snow from a roof damages another one
On Wednesday, Feb. 20 at 4:12 p.m., the Park City Police Department received a report of someone breaking into a minivan and taking a portable DVD player.
The police say the minivan was a rental car, and it was parked on Deer Valley Drive. A window was smashed, the police say, but public police logs do not provide details about the break-in.
Meanwhile, another rental car was damaged in a different way earlier that afternoon. According to the police, ice and snow cascaded off a roof on the 1200 block of Pinnacle Court, breaking a car window when it hit.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
