Cars in China Bridge and on Kearns Boulevard suffer break-ins

Parkites suffered a small string of vehicle break-ins, the Park City Police Department says, cases that occurred as drivers were otherwise preoccupied digging their cars out after the big snows last weekend.

According to the Police Department, someone complained of a break-in at 1:45 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 9 in the China Bridge garage on Swede Alley. Nineteen minutes before, someone else said they were victimized, also in China Bridge.

Public police logs do not provide details about the cases.

Earlier in the week, on Thursday, Dec. 6, the department received a break-in call from the 1700 block of Kearns Boulevard. The case, reported at 8:29 a.m., occurred the night before in an underground garage. The car suffered a broken window on the passenger side.

People with information about the cases can call the Police Department at 615-5500 or call the department’s anonymous tip line. The number is 615-5847.

Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week include:
