Two West Seattle Crime Watch reports in this afternoon – another stolen car, and a burglary with loot including jewelry you’re asked to watch for. Both reports ahead:
Now that it’s happened to me I notice there are lots of people reporting stolen cars on the blog; I just got back from 10 days away and realized my car was missing from the street in front of the building (stolen sometime between 9/13 and 9/23). It was parked on the 45th block of SW Alaska Street (near Farmer’s Market/Junction). Apparently one of my neighbor’s in the building had his older Honda stolen recently, as well. Mine, 1994 Honda Civic DX, Black. My neighbor’s car was recovered, was stripped but still drive-able. We’ll see what happens with mine. 812 TJS
And from Gatewood, the WSB’er known as “Burglar Bustin’ Dad,” for tracking down the burglar who hit his house a while back – discovering him cashing in stolen coins at a grocery store – reports a neighbor’s just been hit (near 35th/Morgan):
My neighbor of 30 years (she has lived here 40 years) was robbed last night about 9 PM.
The thieves grabbed a stored ladder and broke a second story door glass. Jewelry and a computer were taken. I regret that I was not able to help her catch these thieves as she helped me catch the thief who broke in to my house two years ago.
He says a few small pieces of jewelry were found nearby this morning, but two that are missing “stand out”: A large (75 carat) lemon quartz pendant; a silver bracelet with many hand set turquoise stones. If you see them on sale somewhere or find them, please contact police.
