Vehicle prowl: At 7:39 p.m. at 22615 1st Drive SE, a caller reported his vehicle, a red 2018 Ford F150, had been invaded. The car was left unlocked and the victim found his items had been tossed around inside, but didn’t think anything was missing. No damage was done to the vehicle. Later, the victim said he believed either $5 or $10 had been stolen. There were no witnesses.

Car crash: At 9:15 p.m. in the 18600 block of 120th Avenue NE, officers responded to a report of a vehicle collision. The vehicle, a Cadillac, crashed into a barrier and flipped over. Two male subjects got out of the vehicle. Both denied involvement in the collision. The officer reported he could smell intoxicants coming from one of the persons. The driver and passenger were both taken into custody.

Undisturbed gifts: At 11:32 p.m. at 23812 3rd Ave. SE, officers responded to reports of a possible vehicle prowl. An on-site man told officers a Dodge Ram pickup truck that belonged to his son-in-law, visiting him for Christmas, had its dome light on. When he investigated the car, he noticed the door was wide open. Christmas presents inside were undisturbed.
