Pete Erickson, a spokesperson with the MIPD said a suspect had been identified in connection with Tuesday's vehicle prowls. "We do have some leads and some physical evidence," said Erickson. Police have a picture but don't believe the suspect is local. Occasional sprees like this one are not uncommon for the Island. Erickson reminded residents to lock their cars, keep all valuables out of sight and to activate car alarms. At least one of the crimes had a witness. He noted that it was also important to report suspicious activity by calling 9-1-1.
