West Seattle Crime Watch: Music gear stolen; burglar sentenced

Two West Seattle Crime Watch items tonight: First, just out of the WSB inbox from Todd:

A longtime West Seattle band practice facility was broken into early this morning. It is (in the 3300 block of Harbor Avenue SW). It has been home to many, many pivotal Seattle bands over the last 25 years. The Midnight Idols () room was one of the rooms broken into and the thieves took a lot of gear. Most notably:

96 black Gibson Explorer
82 black Gibson V with pinstripes
89 Jackson Rhoads Ontario custom shop
Red 01 Gibson sg special with fade finish
Some pa gear
Hartke bass amp

Any information is helpful. Please contact midnightidols@gmail.com

One other Crime Watch note: The man arrested in connections with dozens of medical/dental-office burglaries, including at least one in West Seattle, has been sentenced. 27-year-old Shane Carlson pleaded guilty last month in cases including drug-possession charges resulting from an October arrest after police spotted him casing a dental office in the 5400 block of California SW. He has a long record including 2 adult felonies and 9 juvenile felonies, plus two dozen misdemeanors. The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office “Daily Docket” says he was sentenced Friday to more than eight years in prison.

    Odd. I saw a “garage sale” in the parking strip on Delridge that had three or four large amps, a black and white guitar (electric?) and some other similar stuff. It seemed like really odd stuff to for a garage sale.
    Probably I’m seeing a connection where there is none. Still.
