West Seattle Crime Watch: Double truck theft in Genesee

May 17, 2011 at 9:00 am | In Crime, Genesee Hill, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

First time we’ve heard of one household suffering a double auto-theft hit in a single day/night. Michael says, “You can imagine the shell-shock we’re feeling,” as he reports:

Sometime after 9:30 PM on Monday night, 2 of our trucks were stolen from our street parking. A 1993 Red Nissan King Cab and a 1991 White Ford F-250. We’re on 48th Ave SW between Andover and Dakota.

The ONLY reason we know about this so early was that at 3:48 AM (today), we were woken up by SPD knocking to inquire if we owned the F-250. It’d been involved in a collision in Auburn, and connected with a burglary in that area.

When we started to give them the info on the F-250, my wife looked out and saw that the Nissan was missing also.

We just checked, and so far, no other auto-theft incidents are listed in West Seattle in the past 24 hours of reports noted on the time-delayed police-response map. One other note: As mentioned in the daily preview, the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meets tonight at the Southwest Precinct, 7 pm – it’s a chance to talk to police leadership about neighborhood crime concerns and to hear firsthand about the latest trends.

  2. I live in white center and noticed a white truck a few blocks from my house. It was parked half way into some bushes. It looked like it had front end damage. Located in the 9700 block 21st ave sw near holy family school.

  3. Hi all, Michael the owner of the trucks.

    Kent Police have the F-250 in impound, still looking for the Nissan. Keeping our fingers crossed, and Thanks for the concerns, they’re always appreciated!
