Bag found in Phinney Ridge with random items likely from a car prowl

November 26th, 2015 by Doree

Ginny tells us she found an Ann Taylor Loft shopping bag on her driveway this morning.

It was full of items that most of us would carry in our cars…phone cables, sunglasses, CDs and an owner’s manual for a 2007 Mazda3. There are a few other items in it as well. It has probably been there for a few days, although the items were not damp. I suspect it was a grab and dash from a car prowl…I live between 3rd and 8th on 73rd.

If you think the items might be yours, email Ginny at grollett@hotmail.com.

Climbing gear stolen during Greenwood car break-in

October 29th, 2015 by Doree

Sue tells us her family’s car was broken into on North 87th Street between Fremont and Linden avenues last night. The thief took a bag of climbing gear, including her children’s gear.

My daughter’s harness is purple and signed across the back by Conrad Anker. My son’s is a small child harness (the kind that goes over the shoulders). There are two small shoes with “Chey” written in red ink on the top. The chalk bag is brown and well loved (20 years old and probably climbed enough vertical feet to reach the moon). My husband’s harness was only a couple of years old and in good condition. The rest are well worn, including other adult shoes and my daughter’s blue shoes. We’ve had stuff show up in our yard that was stolen from somewhere else, and always are eager to find the proper owner. Here’s hoping whoever took this just dumped it somewhere and we can recover it!

Kindle found after car prowl

April 17th, 2015 by Doree

Thaedra tells us her car was broken into several months ago on North 84th Street between Fremont and Dayton avenues. The car was rifled through but nothing was taken other than some change. She returned to the glove box what she thought was the car’s owner’s manual in a leather case. But recently her husband pulled it out and realized it was actually a Kindle. They think it was left behind by the car prowler, and that maybe it was stolen from someone else. The Kindle’s battery is dead and she doesn’t have a charger to turn it on to see if there’s any identifying information.

If you’ve lost a Kindle and think it might be yours, email us at tips@phinneywood.com and we’ll put you in touch with her.
