A black Chevy Tahoe reported stolen on Feb. 23 was recovered on April 1, Anacortes Police reported.
The police department posted a notice about the stolen vehicle on its website and social media accounts Feb. 24, advising the public to keep an eye out for the vehicle.
“On April 1, someone called in because the vehicle was parked in a cul de sac for several weeks and looked out of place in the neighborhood,” Community Service Officer Karl Wolfswinkel reported. “The recovered Tahoe is another example of the importance of community and police partnerships to ensure public safety.”
