West Seattle Crime Watch: 2 burglary reports

Read on for two reports that came in Friday but involved break-ins earlier in the week:

First one is more information courtesy of Holly on a burglary in Seaview (at 45th/Raymond; map) on Thursday (we had reported it briefly in this roundup):

Turns out this was a pretty bad (burglary). Our neighbor came home to find her door open, kitchen window broken and the house ransacked. She thought the thief/thieves could still be inside so police entered fully armored. The suspect/s had left. No one is in custody. Smaller, easier to carry and pawn items were stolen.

And Connie reports:

One of my clients was broken into between 10:30am – 1:00pm on Wednesday March 11th, in the Arbor Heights area. They kicked in the side door and made off with a flat screen T.V. that was mounted on the wall and cash & jewelry.

She notes that a package delivery had been made to the house while she was there a short time before the apparent window during which it happened, adding “I’d hate to think they are related but I just
wanted to mention it.”


  1. How scary! Does anyone know what was going on in the Seaview neighborhood late last night that prompted a police search? My daughter’s boyfriend left our house near 45th/Brandon around 11:30pm and called to say he saw police searching. Our dog had just been barking out back about that time.

  2. Do we know if either of these individuals have alarm systems? We’re contemplating getting one, but I’m curious if it’s worth it.

  3. I have a monitored alarm system and a break in attempt was made @ my home a year ago. They had thrown a rock near the latch in my kitchen window, reached in to remove the piece of wood I used for additional reinforment. The alarm went off when the window was opened, follwed by a telephone call from the alarm company. The thief did not pursue entering the house. I immediately organized a block watch soon after the incident. If anything, it’s a good deterrent.

  4. rl, is your block watch in Seaview? If so I would like to join. I am in Seaview and had my catalytic converter cut off my 4Runner infront of my house. I am highly motivated! Thanks.
