Two reports to share this morning – one, a car break-in that netted the thieves religious items as well as more common loot, so the victim’s hoping you will keep an eye out in case they were discarded; the other, an attempted car theft. Both after the jump:
First, from Jackie on 22nd SW between Trenton and Cloverdale:
I had my car broken into (overnight) and my wallet, id, laptop, iPhone, headsets, etc. were stolen. I know these things are just things but I also had my Tibetan Buddhist texts and books and pictures of my precious teachers in there. Unfortunately, the person who stole these items will probably only think of the value of laptop and such and throw away the Buddhist texts.
How can I get word out to folks in my area to call me or my husband if they find interesting papers or text, wrapped in red brocade to call us? We found my bag and some little items strewing down Cloverdale heading east towards the high school track and soccer field.
Our number is 206-617-8562. I did call the police and they took a report. Folks can call them also. Incident report # 11-44483.
Police say it over and over and over again, and maybe Jackie’s story will remind you – don’t EVER leave ANYTHING in your car. Meantime, somebody tried to break into a car belonging to someone else named Jackie, this time in the Admiral District:
Sometime between 1 and 6 am someone made an unfruitful attempt to break into or possibly steal our car Saturday night. It was parked behind our place in the breezeway 5 ft from our building where there is A LOT of foot traffic late at night. I say attempt because there is only damage to the driver-side door lock which is now unusable. It will need to be replaced and looks like they tried to use a screwdriver to gain entry. I didn’t notice anything when we got in first thing, the car was still locked. My bf got had let me in from the passenger side so I had no idea anything was wrong until I tried to use the key later on in the day. We then checked and found nothing from the car missing. It was one of only a handful of nights we forgot to put “The Club” on our 02 Saturn so I am wondering if that was the reason, to actually take it. There wasn’t anything in the car of interest or value visible.
The reason I am mentioning it to WSB is because a friend of mine had her similar model mid to late 90s Saturn stolen at the beginning of this last December, just a block away from where we live off California Ave in Admiral District.
So this is kind of a heads up I guess.
