Five West Seattle Crime Watch reports this afternoon – starting with a theft that netted loot whose owners are hoping they’ll somehow get it back. They signed themselves “Disappointed in Alki“:
We live in Alki on Halleck Ave. SW just off 53 Avenue [map]. Sometime in the past 24 hours we had a few things stolen from the steps of our front porch. Now, it may sound insignificant but along with a few pots with herbs in them a small Indian statue was stole which has HUGE sentimental value to us. I’m guessing it was just kids being stupid but the fact that someone walked up our steps, were literally at our front door and stole something that that is very special to us and cannot be replaced feels awful and breaks our hearts. If this is posted and by chance the person who took is reading this post, can you do the right thing? Can you please bring back our little Indian sculpture… no questions asked, we promise, you would not believe how important it is to us. We have always felt so safe and comfortable in our little home on a dead end road, this is a sad wake-up call.
(In case you see something – we verified, that’s “Indian” as in South Asia, not as in Native American.) Four more reports ahead:
My 95 Ford Taurus was broken into last night. I forgot to take the face plate of my nice JVC radio and it was removed neatly and is missing this morning. The rest of the car was searched but there was nothing else in the car to take. Reported to the police this morning. Location: 3000 block 42nd SW [map]
One night earlier, Kate was hit by car prowler(s):
Just letting you know that items were stolen from our unlocked car last
night(8/4)… nice sunglasses and an iPhone car adapter. We live on 37th Ave SW off Thistle [map]. Granted, it’s our mistake, but still unsettling.
Bicycle thieves hit Brian B on Wednesday night:
(O)ur two bicycles were stolen from the second floor landing at our apartment building located on California Ave. near Morgan Junction. The thief cut through two bike locks, one on the railing and one on each other, to steal them.
And though this happened a few weeks ago, L doesn’t have the car back yet, so e-mailed us about it today:
Stolen the night of July 21, out of my driveway near Genesee and Delridge Way, my gray 2-door 1986 Ford Escort, license 196VTC. It’s a 2-door, in good shape (prior to theft!), had a black and yellow bike rack on hatchback door. It’s an old car, but it’s all I had to get my child and me to work, appointments etc. Please call 911 if you seen this stolen vehicle.
