Break-ins at First Creek Trailhead

After returning from our hike on Sunday we discover one of the cars had a broken window and items were stolen. We were parked at First Creek Trailhead along State Route 159. Upon inspection we saw several remnants of broken windows. This trailhead has obviously been staked out by thieves.

My advice is not have anything, at least visible, in your car worth stealing. Thieves know you will be gone for a while. In fact, I only bring a drivers license when I go hiking. If I need to bring my wallet, I put it in my daypack.

I am sure these break-ins are occurring at other trailheads. Don't bring valuables and keep your eyes open.
