Car Burglaries

Neighbors,

Over the past months there have been several car burglaries in the area. On Saturday around 6:00am, a thief was confronted about looking in cars with a flashlight on Vine Street — he quickly fled. He then returned around 8:00am and was captured on video breaking into a car but unfortunately his license plate number has not yet been captured. The man drives a white SUV and has also been seen driving around the neighborhood throughout the night and into the morning.

Please keep an eye out and be sure to report any suspicious activity to 911. If your car has been burglarized and you have not already filed a police report, you can do so online at http://slcpd.com/contact-us/online-report/.

Edit: A witness has provided the following additional information about the car and suspect:

  • Drives a White Hyundai Santa Fe with only a rear license plate. No front plate.
  • Rear windows are tinted dark
  • Rims are silver
  • No spare tire on the trunk door
  • The driver is nearly 6 ft tall, skinny, darker skin (maybe mexican or persian). He has a narrow, long nose and little to no visible hair on his head.
