Update on Vehicle Prowler Arrested in Valley this Morning

The person arrested for car prowling in Gate 3 today was charged with Vehicle Prowling in the 2nd Degree which can be a gross misdemeanor or a felony, depending on prior history.  This person was armed, had drugs in possession, and was well equipped to search, break in, and do harm.  It is important to reinforce to our members, this is a matter best left to the Sheriff’s Department and to our Security.  The Association asks all of our members, please, if you see anyone engaged in suspicious activity, immediately report it to the authorities and do not approach the individual.  Safety first.

Car Prowler Arrested In Valley Last Night

Early this morning a Gate 3 resident contacted the Whatcom Sherriff’s Department reporting suspicious activity outside their home involving their car.  The Sherriff’s Dispatcher contacted Sudden Valley Security notifying them of the situation, tasking them to cordon the area, monitor and report. Sherriff’s Deputies arrived at 4:15 am, circled the area, stopped an individual and then shortly took that person into custody departing the valley at 5:00 a.m. this morning.  We thank the membership for being aware, reporting, and enabling the process to work to a successful end today.
