Someone stole 12 gallons of gas from our vehicle last night. The same thing happened to our neighbors last week. Both were newer cars, which I thought were impossible to siphon, but somehow our gas tanks were emptied during the night.

When reporting it to the police this morning, they tell me it happened to others in our area of Orting also. We live in Carbon River Landing and want people to be aware that car prowls, gas thefts and home break-ins are happening in our neighborhood.

Please report suspicious activity immediately. Together we can keep our property safe. Either call 911 or Buckley dispatch at 360-829-3157. Please be a good neighbor.
