Car prowler steals station wagon with no brakes, gets stuck in snow bank

WEST FARGO – Police here believe a car prowler stole a station wagon from the driveway of a West Fargo home and ended up in a snow bank because the vehicle’s brakes didn’t work.

The theft was reported at 4 a.m. today in the 900 block of Fifth Avenue West. The keys had been left in the car, Assistant Police Chief Mike Reitan said.

Police recovered the car about two blocks away, stuck in a snow bank on the north side of Westside Elementary, he said.

“And it appears there was at least one other vehicle in that neighborhood that somebody had been in,” he added.

There are no suspects at this time, Reitan said.
