Three short reader reports to share – if you live in the Seaview or Admiral areas in particular, you might want to be aware:
This one’s out of the inbox today, from Jim in Seaview:
All four wheels were stolen off of my 2008 Honda Fit last night (between 6 pm and 6:30 am), a few blocks west of California and Raymond. They didn’t even take the lug nuts or try to break into the car.
We got another note about that one from Jackie, who adds that the car was brand-new. Jackie lives in the 6000 block of 44th (map) and adds that she too is a recent theft victim:
10/2, the catalytic converter was stolen off our ’99 Tacoma pickup right in front of our house.”
One more Crime Watch note, elaborating on this WSB Forums post – the stolen yard sign was actually in the post’er’s yard in Admiral (and these days, yard signs aren’t always free – the stolen one cost $10).
Reminder: If you are the victim of a crime, even if you think it’s too small to report, IT’S NOT – it’s important for police at the very least to be able to track what’s happening and where. The nonemergency line is 206/625-5011; you can find that any time on the WSB Crime Watch page (along with the links to our latest Crime Watch stories and some handy resource links).
