Just going for scenic drive
Police responded to a scene at 11:55 p.m. July 3 where several people witnessed a large brown motor home crash through the fence of U-Store Self Storage, 16610 S.E. 128th St., and travel east on Southeast 128th Street before crashing at Southeast 143rd Street and 196th Avenue Southeast, hitting several fences and telephone poles. Two male suspects in hooded sweatshirts fled, and one had a Sony DVD player in a box under his arm, although he left the box behind a telephone pole nearby. The suspects cut the fence to the storage grounds and crawled through sticker bushes to get inside. Several other motor homes were easier to get to, but were not touched. The suspects started the motor home with a key and cut a hole in the windshield to see. The owner said no keys were left in the motor home.
