West Seattle Crime Watch: Highland Park car break-ins

November 27, 2010 at 11:55 pm | In Crime, Highland Park, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

A second West Seattle Crime Watch report tonight – this one from John and Lisa, asking that it be shared “for neighborhood awareness”:

When: Wee hours after Black Friday

Where: 7000 block of 13th SW, near Riverview Park [map]

Multi-vehicle, VERY aggressive break-ins of cars and house porches, driveways. They stole lots and didn’t restrict their choices and if they saw items on your porch, those were taken too.

Items ranges from work truck oxygen tanks, scooter, backpacks from vehicles, and more. Lots of time spent searching thru cars. Police report made and multiple case numbers issued.

  1. I saw four vehicles Saturday morning that were parked along California up the big hill south of Thriftway that had been vandalized. It appeared as if someone was walking through and picked up large bowling ball size rocks from landscaping and throwning them through car windows. Makes me sick that someone would randomly do this.

  2. Thanks for reporting this. We live in the area and your letter made my husband and I double check our cars for any valuables. I’m sorry to those who were victimized.
