Suspect arrested in Medina car prowls

A suspect has been arrested by Medina Police in the case of car prowls at Medina City Hall.

Police say two parked vehicles were prowled between 4:14-5:45 p.m. on Sunday July 13 while the owners were visiting Medina Beach Park.

The suspect accessed both vehicles by breaking the passenger side window. Once inside, the suspect removed a bag with contents valued at approximately $100 from the first vehicle and a purse, cash, and electronics valued at approximately $400 from the second vehicle.

The following day at about 7:05 a.m., a Medina officer contacted a suspicious subject in the 7600 block of Overlake Drive West who matched the description of the vehicle prowling suspect. Upon contact, the officer discovered the subject had two outstanding felony warrants for his arrest.

A search of the subject revealed drug paraphernalia and vehicle prowling/burglary tools. The subject was booked into King County Jail.
