Two West Seattle Crime Watch reports today – a puppy stolen in a burglary, and break-ins in a parking garage – read on for both reports:
First, the stolen puppy (which has also been posted on the WSB Pets page):
Sunday morning between 11-12am the home in West Seattle belonging to King County Council Candidate Diana Toledo was broken into. The front door was kicked in and several rooms ransacked, with the only visible thing taken being a 7 week-old puppy that Diana’s family had been fostering.
The puppy is a small, 7 weeks old, brown pit-bull who answers to the name “Jewel.” The family is very concerned with the puppy’s health as no dog food was taken from the home. The children are distraught and we are asking for any help you can give.
If you have any information please contact the Seattle Police Department Southwest Precinct at (206) 733-9800, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our vm line at 206-312-2228. We will be checking our messages regularly in hopes of finding our puppy.
And from Johana:
Recent ” secure ” garage parking break in’s @ Avalon Park Vista apts in West Seattle on Avalon way. We have had SEVERAL break in’s into our upper and lower level parking garage. So far about 3-4 in the little over a year i have been here. First time they stole a motorcycle and broke into other cars. Second time they broke into our car, stole pretty much everything they could carry as well as breaking into another car. Third time they broke in and stole 2 bicycles one of which is worth about 2000.00. The cameras we have facing the garage door do not work … Someone else in the garage has a security camera on their belongings and we were able to capture footage of 2 tall black male’s one with dreadlocks. They also stole the garage door openers out of the cars so they were able to get back in. Finally our property manager changed the code to our garage but only to the lower level not the upper. We found items that were stolen out of our car in the neighborhood behind the Avalon Way/35th Ave 711. There is a suspect house in that neighborhood. The man that called us when finding our belongings on his front lawn also has security cameras on his property due to these suspect neighbors.
She says police reports have been filed, twice.
