West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen car to look for; car-prowl alert

January 27, 2011 at 10:03 pm | In Crime, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

Two quick West Seattle Crime Watch reports from the WSB inbox tonight. First, from Susan:

My car was stolen today from my work at the Harbor Marina Office Park at 1001 Klickitat Way. It is a 1998 Blue Subaru Outback wagon license plate 324 ZOR. Please post on the blog in case anyone sees it.

And from K:

We are in the 3200 block of 48th Ave SW near Hinds. Car prowlers were out last night. Neighbor’s car door was open this morning and the entire vehicle ransacked. Kind neighbors found the contents of the glove compartment and placed it in their mailbox. Had to happen between 11 PM and 5 AM this morning. Just a warning to keep doors locked and your vehicles empty of anything important.

Alert neighbors can make a difference – as police reminded us again today with this burglary-busting success story.
ADDED: One more report arrived late tonight, from Mark:

Just wanted to let WSB readers know there was a burglary today in the 9300 block of 31st PL SW. Happened sometime between 1:30 and 6:00 pm. Thieves shattered the back sliding glass door and took off with a laptop and 3 video game systems. Not very smart individuals as they left behind their cell phone and one of their gloves, both taken into evidence by the SPD. Officers also dusted for fingerprints. Hopefully this will lead to their arrest and prosecution.

  1. I will continue to call police when I see something,But still pretty miffed about an incident a few years ago. One late night I looked out my window and noticed someone rummaging through a neihbors car, called the police and hopped in the back of the sqaud to drive up the street and found the kid at 7-11. they talked to him and let him walk! told me he lived in a halfway house and has had other run ins with the law. I said I wanted to press charges, and they told me I could not since it was not my car.

  2. Good luck with the fingerprints. SPD got fingerprints after our break-in (that took roughly $10,000 in goods), and then promptly put the case in the inactive file! Despite photos and a thick police report we filed, gloves left behind from the jerks who did this (with fingerprints on the inside). Really, after a week, the case goes into the inactive file! Not a lot of confidence here.

  4. Two nights, two garages broken into, doors kicked in, tools stolen! Alley in the 3800 block between Charleston and Andover.

    One happened during the night, the other happened today, during day light hours with neighbors home.

    Lets stop these punks!
