Winlock woman hit by car prowler at Riffe Lake
A Winlock woman was the victim of a car prowl while boating with friends near Glenoma on Saturday, according to the Lewis County Sheriff's Office.
The 28-year-old had parked her car at the eastern boat launch of Riffe Lake, south of Glenoma, and had left her purse in her vehicle. After she returned, she found damage to the seals around the windows of her driver and passenger doors, presumably in an attempt to manipulate the locks, and found her trunk latch had been broken.
Stolen were her purse, containing a wallet, ID, concealed weapon permit, credit cards and cash, as well as clothing being stored in the trunk. Her credit cards were later used at a Walmart in Spanaway and a Fred Meyer in Tacoma, though it was noted the transaction in Tacoma did not go through as the cards had been cancelled at that point.
Authorities indicated they are investigating leads related to the theft. It was believed to have taken place between 4:10 and 7:20 p.m.
