ARLINGTON — At approximately 12:40 a.m. on Oct. 31, Arlington police received a call from a Gleneagle resident reporting two suspicious males walking the neighborhoods near the Gleneagle Clubhouse. A subsequent check revealed that several unlocked vehicles had been entered and numerous items stolen.
Arlington Police arrested two Everett men, ages 37 and 32, for vehicle prowls and booked them into the Snohomish County Jail pending the filing of felony theft and vehicle prowl charges. Arlington Police believe that the vehicles entered by the suspects were unlocked, and items such as GPS units, medications, checkbooks, CDs, iPods and other items were recovered from the two suspects.
Arlington Police Chief Nelson Beazley credited these arrests in part to the sharp observation of a local citizen who made the call to police
"These thefts were crimes of opportunity," Beazley said. "We were fortunate that a vigilant neighbor reported the suspicious activity that led to the arrest of these two suspects. The Arlington Police Department reminds all residents to remove any valuables from their vehicle and to lock it. It's the best way to deter these types of crimes."
This case is still under investigation by the Arlington Police Department. If you believe that you were a victim of these crimes, please call 911 for an officer to respond to take a report for this investigation.
