Seattle car vandal takes nothing, leaves tortillas

Associated Press + More

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police are scratching their heads about this one.

A car prowler shattered a window of a parked Jeep, stole nothing and left behind a little something for the car's owner — a dozen tortillas scattered across the floor. The crime happened last week near the University of Washington.

Bemused by the break-in, police were moved to pun, saying, "The Seattle Police Department would like to take this opportunity to remind car prowlers that you shouldn't break in to something that's nachos."
