West Seattle Crime Watch: Genesee Hill break-in

Out of the WSB inbox, from a neighbor who didn’t want her name used:

Just learned that my neighbor (2 doors down) was (burglarized) this morning in broad daylight. They left their home at 9 AM and returned at Noon and many electronics were boosted. Most of us on the street were home during that time, but didn’t notice anything.

Another neighbor thinks she saw an older model rust-colored car in the driveway during that time. Around 11 AM, I went on a walk nearby … didn’t notice anything at their house, but did take notice of a car fitting a similar description further down the road. It was a 80’s style small sedan, rusty red color with a bit of a loud muffler/engine. I noticed the car because it was older looking and it was driving rather fast and loud down the road while I was walking.

House is between Dakota and Andover on 50th Ave SW. [map]

The city’s “My Neighborhood” map often shows incidents like this within a day or two – but e-mails like this can get the word out quicker. The map’s default view is for reports filed during the week preceding your map view – three West Seattle burglaries are shown on or since last Saturday, November 20th: that date in the 3300 block of Admiral Way; last Sunday (11/21) in the 8600 block of 35th SW; Wednesday (11/24) in the 12000 block of Marine View Drive.

    I saw a similar looking car on my block (56th) with the loud muffler…couple guys parked it, got out, walked a bit, got back in and drove away…I was out doing yardwork around 1:00…I’ll keep my eyes peeled.

    In the good old days, before there was a lawyer under every rock, they used to hang horse thieves on sight.

    We’ve noticed that crime tends to go up around the holidays and I doubt it’s going to get much better with our current economy. If anyone would like to talk about Alarm Systems or other security, we’re available for free consultations and are a local sponsor of the blog. Happy Holidays! – Jimmie Beem jbeem@freedomsystemsinc.com

Sorry, comment time is over.
