Vehicle prowls

Police arrested two Sequim teens on suspicion of breaking into numerous cars between July 10 and July 12. The boys, ages 16 and 17, were found to be in possession of a stolen sub-woofer and a GPS unit, along with brass knuckles. The Sequim Gazette does not identify juveniles accused of crimes. 


One of the boys told police the two entered or attempted to enter more than 30 cars during the two-day period and stealing more than $700 worth of property. They allegedly traded one stolen GPS unit for cigarettes.


The two boys are in custody at the Clallam County Youth Center on investigation of vehicle prowl, theft, possession of stolen property and possession of dangerous weapons.

He is in custody at the Clallam County jail on investigation of second-degree assault in lieu of $5,000 bond. Prosecutors plan to file charges July 18.
