Vancouver, Wash. — On September 10, 2023, shortly before 11:00 pm, Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a report of multiple individuals breaking into cars in the parking lot of the Pioneer Vista Apartments at 16501 NE 15th Ave. Upon arrival, deputies discovered the suspects attempting to steal a vehicle in the parking lot.

The passenger, another teenager, was transported to JDH, facing charges related to motor vehicle theft.
