More burglaries reported on South Whidbey

The rash of break-ins and car prowls on the South End that began in late October shows no sign of letting up.

Detective Ed Wallace of the Island County Sheriff's Office said Monday that six additional car prowls and burglaries were reported late last week; all on Thursday, Nov. 10.

Wallace said four incidents — two burglaries and two car prowls — were reported in the area around Newman Road and East Harbor Road.

Two other incidents were reported in Clinton, and one outside of Langley.

The four Freeland cases, Wallace said, "are being linked as related."

In the previous burglaries, the incidents mostly involved unlocked buildings and vehicles that were entered overnight. Thirteen incidents were reported over a one-week period, including several on Newman Road.

Wallace said reports had not yet been filed on the more recent cases, so details were lacking earlier this week.

Law enforcement officials have advised residents to keep their cars and homes locked, and to call 911 to report suspicious activities or vehicles in their neighborhoods.
