The city of Battle Ground warned residents Wednesday of a recent rash of vehicle prowls and several vehicle thefts.

Battle Ground police officers responded to a dozen reports of people prowling vehicles and three car thefts Monday and Tuesday in multiple neighborhoods, according to a city Facebook post.
The Crystal Springs neighborhood, in northeast Battle Ground, was “hit especially hard,” the post says.

Officers are actively working the case but have asked for the public’s help. Anyone who hears or sees any suspicious person or vehicle between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m. should call 911.
If anyone has information about earlier suspicious activity, they should call 311.

Residents and businesses are being asked to review security video from earlier this week, between the hours of 1:30 to 4 a.m. Particularly, police are seeking footage from places in Crystal Springs and the southeast section of the city, from Parkway Avenue to Grace Avenue, and Main Street to Eaton Boulevard.

“The suspect(s) in this criminal activity appear to be especially bold — do not confront anyone you may suspect; call 911. Be sure to always lock your vehicle and remove any valuables,” the city said.
