Mark sent the video, saying that prowler was recorded in his “back driveway” around 1 am Saturday, near 35th/Holden in Gatewood. Checking the SPD tweet log (which you can scroll through any time atop the WSB Crime Watch page), we note that Saturday also brought two auto-theft reports in Gatewood, 4100 block of SW Monroe and 4100 block of SW Portland – haven’t heard from the victims, so no details.

    Hrm – our video was not as clear & in black & white. Still – a person in a hoodie walking down the street checking cars doors for easy entry. Hoodie seemed to be light colored, though.

    Just an fyi for those watching the video, the prowler is in the first 15 seconds only. He doesn’t appear again. Too bad there’s no way to zoom in on him.

    Looks like the car could pull up right next to the shed doors to function as a barricade to prevent a  creeper from breaking into the shed.  At least the shed may get spared.

Sorry, comment time is over.
