A possible vehicle prowler was arrested in Aberdeen, but it is not known if he is responsible for numerous prowls over the last week.
Aberdeen Police say that they were called to a possible vehicle prowl in the alley behind the 100 block of W. 1st Street at around 1pm.
The caller said that a man was seen was inside a van, and was seen walking away from the area.
Officers found a man matching the description given by the caller siting in front of the Aberdeen Manor, and he told police that he was “working on the van for a friend”.
When police ran the man’s information, they found he had both an Aberdeen Municipal Court Warrant and a Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office felony warrant.
The man was arrested and booked for his outstanding warrants.
