West Seattle Crime Watch: Another stolen car to watch for

March 8, 2011 at 2:05 pm | In Crime, Fauntleroy, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

From Devin, a car theft in Fauntleroy:

I wanted to report that our car was stolen on Sunday evening, sometime between 10:30 pm and 6 am Monday. It was parked on the street in front of our house on Vashon View SW [map]. We have filed a police report. The car is a 1996 Acura Integra. It’s dark red with a spoiler on the trunk.

WSBers have spotted stolen cars before, but since we don’t get reports directly from police (their special Twitter feed doesn’t identify the theft location), please keep sending in the info if car theft happens to you. By the way, this is the only category of major crime that rose in Seattle last year compared to 2009, according to 2010 crime stats released today by Seattle Police. We were at HQ for the announcement and are putting together a West Seattle-focused story you’ll see here later.

  1. Watch for reports from the Tukwila police dept, that’s where my 1995 Acura Integra ended up (after being hacked up and the engine stolen)

  2. Sad to say, but our 96 Acura was stolen from our driveway in ws and dismantled 5 years ago. There was nothing left but metal carcass by the time thieves were done with it. I hope the same is not true for this car. Unfortunately, these cars are a huge target. Sorry this happened to you, red Acura owner.

  3. What does a Acura Integra look like? These days all cars look alike. The only distinguishing descriptor is the color and the spoiler. Still not much to differentiate it, though. Good luck.

  4. The car license plate # is 166XUZ and there is a dent in the front bumper and a crease in the hood. The driver’s side lock is brocken.
