David Russell drove to Lakewood from Camas, Wash., on Nov. 13 to make arrangements after his father’s death earlier that day.

The already hectic trip became even more so when his car was broken into and his personal and work belongings were stolen, Russell said.

One of four brother’s, he was on his way to Yelm to pick up family members to discuss the arrangements when his parked car was broken into in the 9000 block of Dalwood Road Southwest between 3 and 5 p.m.

He guesses the stolen items total about $1,500. Fixing the car will require about $300, he says.

On the list of stolen items is the black toolbox he uses to repair printing presses for a living, which has a silver name tag under the handle.

He also lost a small black HP computer, a leather satchel with his clothing for the trip, a black briefcase, and a leather day planner.

The family asks that anyone with information about the theft call the Lakewood police.
