Crime prevention help in Mukilteo

The Mukilteo Police Department now is offering $10 “clubs” meant to deter car thieves. The clubs are available at the station, 10500 47th Place W, for cash or check. Gun locks are available, too.

Officer Colt Davis shared some additional crime news in the Block Watch newsletter.

Most car prowls in the city involve unlocked vehicles, he wrote. In addition, there were 107 burglaries in the city in 2014. One trend involved thieves breaking into detached garages and unlocked garages.

Mukilteo police are looking for people who want to start Block Watch groups.
