This morning we began receiving numerous reports of vehicle break-ins throughout various residential areas of the city. As of the 10 am this morning, around a dozen victims have been identified, including an off-duty Pierce County Deputy whose patrol vehicle was also broken into while parked in the driveway of his residence. The investigation is still in its early stages, however as of now it is believed that 4-6 non-descript juvenile-aged suspects associated with two separate vehicles (a smaller dark colored SUV & a silver medium sized sedan) are involved. The incidents in the city appear to have occurred sometime between around 3:30 and 4 am on June 10th. Officers are also looking into the possibility that the break ins are related to incidents in both Puyallup as well as Renton. If anyone has any tips/leads, or security camera video footage that could be of assistance, please reach out to Sumner Police. The best is to leave a voicemail on our Tip Line at 253-299-5678.
