They come creeping in the dark of the night: Car prowlers like this Seattle suspect trying to open doors and steal your stuff.

These surveillance images were taken on N.E. 100th St. in the Maple Leaf  neighborhood of north Seattle a little more than a week ago and they show a suspect police are trying to identify.

Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “It’s just another warning. If you have stuff that’s valuable, please do not leave it in the open. In this case, it wasn’t left in the open but it was in a glove box.”
