Two notes in West Seattle Crime Watch today – but first, two notes from nearby communities: Our partner site White Center Now is covering the WC raid that is reported to be linked to a federal sweep today regarding illegal cigarettes. The story’s here. Also, police are asking for help with solving a South Park hit-and-run – details here. Meantime, in West Seattle, we’ve been asked to alert the wider community to an alert that the Arbor Heights Swim & Tennis Club has reported to police about a suspicious stranger, a man reportedly seen hanging around by the back gate of the club three times in the past week (110th/32nd), white, long dark hair, in his 40s, associated with a red Chevrolet Silverado truck, plates have changed (one number given to police turned out to have expired 10 years ago).
Second note: Tom reports his blue Santa Cruz mountain bike was stolen from his garage at California/Raymond on Sunday or Monday, “an older full-suspension model with curved handle bars (not the typical straight handle bars you see on mountain bikes) and boxy looking chain stays.” He’s filed a report, so let police know if you see it.
