As the prowlers get more brazen, the town of Olalla is banding together, and they're using social media to fight back.
Nerves are frayed all over town as more and more break ins and burglaries are reported.
"It's not really pleasant, because every night you wonder, every noise you hear, you get up," said Bill Wierman.
Many within the town have horror stories of being burglarized. Roofer and small-business owner Bill Clark had an air compressor stolen. He said he used the machine to put food on his table.
"This is our American dream. We fix our house and we love living here but we have crime, it's unsettling," said Clark's wife, Wisa Wahosi.
Fed up with the crime wave, Wahosi posted a sign on her fence that says, "To the criminals who broke into our car: You are a loser."
Others are going even further, posting every strange happening, unwanted person or strange car on Facebook to warn others. They call the page the Kay Greseth Police Department, named after the road many of them live on.
"We've had a lot of people actually come to our windows, trying to come through our door while we're here," said Annette Howard.
Residents hope by staying vigilant and using the Facebook page, they'll be able to help police catch the culprits.
