Car Burglaries in Newport Beach

Unlocked cars on Promontory Drive West and Harbor Island Drive were targeted during recent burglaries.

A handful of cars were recently broken into in Newport Beach, police reported.

  • On Sunday, July 22 an unknown suspect smashed the passenger side window of a car parked in the 200 block of Promontory Drive West. Police say a computer bag with a laptop and digital camera were stolen.
  • Police say on Monday, July 16 two unlocked cars on Harbor Island Drive had items stolen by burglars. In one case, a FastTrak pass, jumper cables, flashlight and cloth bags were stolen. In the second car, a handicap placard,  paperwork and three bottles of wine were taken.

Vehicle Safety Tips:

  • Take valuables out: Remove all valuable from plain sight or hide them before arriving at your destination.
  • Lock your vehicle: Verify your vehicle is securely locked before leaving the area.
  • Close your windows: An open window or sunroof allows for quick entry into your vehicle by a thief – Always check that they are completely shut before leaving your vehicle.

Another day , with the recent home invasions , vehicle Burgularies etc. Not going through the same old thought that the department is loosing the battle. Again The Chief promised me a comparison from one year ago to the current year. NOTHING , just kike the ability to handle this and other issues. We need an outside review ot this department. Whatt iOS the Chieef worried about ? Answer his leadership isn!t working. !
