Federal Way car break-ins: Police search for person of interest linked to prowls

After nearly 70 cars were vandalized in less than 24 hours in Federal Way this month, police are asking the public's help in finding a person of interest connected to the prowls. 

On Feb. 11, officers found a suspect vehicle with five people inside at the McDonald's parking lot at the Crossings on Pacific Highway South and South 348th. 

Police said as soon as the suspects saw the patrol car, it sped away and got onto I-5. 

After several hours, police found the car unoccupied in Puyallup.
