Peninsula-based sheriff’s deputies are asking the public’s help in finding the people who broke into a car at the Gig Harbor Athletic Club and stole a briefcase containing personal and financial documents.


The theft occurred Sunday about 3:30 p.m. A bystander witnessed the incident and provided deputies with descriptions, the Sheriff’s Department’s Peninsula detachment reported Wednesday.


One suspect was described a man with a darker complexion. He was wearing a backward baseball hat. The second suspect, who was seen stealing the briefcase, was described as a light-skinned man, 5 feet 9 and 200 pounds, with a stocky build, deputies reported. He was wearing a white T-shirt, baggy shorts and a baseball hat.


They were seen leaving the Athletic Club in a white, full-size Chevrolet pickup with a large Chevrolet ‘bowtie’ decal in the rear window. The truck was headed toward Highway 16.


Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or the Peninsula Detachment at 253-798-4940.
