Four reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch this morning, from car thieves caught on video, to interrupted burglars – read on:
*Ky reports a car theft in the 9600 block of 46th SW (map), around 5:30 this morning. He says security cameras show the thieves, two men in dark clothing, arrived in a purplish-black older-model older-model Chevy Suburban with a roof rack. The car is a small, silver Audi A4 station wagon with roof rack crossbars and window stickers on the back side windows that say “Cascade Powder Cats.”
*Hit-run report from last night, from the victim, who didn’t want to be identified:
I live on 26th AVE SW and at 6:00 pm (Friday night) was pulling into my driveway when a car hit my car & took off. It happened so fast that I didn’t get a good look at the car, but after driving around with my husband we saw some cars with similar shapes. ’80s Monte Carlo or Chevy Caprice Classic and I think it was grayish in color but the parts left behind show coppery brown trim pieces and the turn signal/headlight was damaged. My car got hit on the driver’s side backdoor. Thankfully I was going slow enough, I was not hurt & my car still drives, but any help in finding who did this would be appreciated. I filed a police report already but as it was dark & they sped off, I have very little to go on.
*A Fauntlee Hills resident reports spotting car prowlers along Barton west of 35th (map) last night just after 8 pm. Their getaway car was “old, small, brown.”
*Via Facebook, Debby reports a burglary at 37th/Cambridge (map) on Friday: “The homeowners interrupted the crime. The (burglars) got away with a small electronic safe containing a gun.” The police map shows this was reported around 4 pm.
