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.
Don’t forget the neighborhood blood drive tomorrow from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the LDS Church gym at 142 West 200 North. With summer coming, the need for blood transfusions increases dramatically. ARUP will be in the neighborhood to collect donations of blood from those able to give. The attached provides additional details.
Come any time during the scheduled hours. No appointment is necessary. It takes about 30 minutes.
Please consider giving the gift of life.
