A citizen’s call led police to a man reportedly trying to break into vehicles at about 9:45 a.m. April 13 at a store parking lot in the 24000 block of Pacific Highway South.

Police arrested the man for investigation of second-degree vehicle prowling, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of a driver’s license, according to the police report.

A witness called 911 to report a man trying to enter cars. The witness told police the man tried to pull on door handles of a Chevrolet Suburban, a Ford Explorer and a Honda Civic. Police noticed that all of the vehicles were parked in a row and marked with “for sale” signs. The man told police he was just looking at the cars.

Officers searched him and discovered three syringes in his possession. The officers also determined he was carrying a fake Washington state driver’s license, according to the report.

Trespass

Police cited two men for investigation of second-degree criminal trespass after the men were spotted in their cars at 1:37 a.m. April 19 at a company’s private parking lot in the 20300 block of 59th Place South in the Kent industrial area.

The parking lot has a “no trespassing” sign posted at the entrance and is known as a street-racing area, according to the police report.

One man told police they had stopped to try to decide where to eat. Both men, who were driving Honda Civics, reportedly told police they did not know anyone who worked at the company and that they did not see any “no trespassing” signs.
