West Seattle Crime Watch: Car prowlers/vandals, again

February 3, 2012 at 10:50 am | In Crime, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

We have multiple reports this morning of another street where parked cars were hit by prowlers/vandals – FLS reported at least two in the 37th SW/Hanford vicinity – “windows smashed in, vehicle ransacked.” Police were on their way when he e-mailed us earlier. Rena mentioned it on the WSB Facebook page, too. Earlier this week, at least half a dozen cars were vandalized on Beach Drive, according to this report from Beach Drive Blog. Even if damage wasn’t too serious and nothing was taken, police ask that you do file a report for these types of crimes, which at least helps them track trends and figure out where to focus more patrol resources.


  1. I live in 37th and Hanford and didn’t see any cars vandalized. Was it on 37th?

  2. My car was broken into, ransacked and they look clothes and items out of my trunk. I just filed a police report. It happened on 47th Ave SW, between Hinds and Spokane street. During the day with my windows open in the house. Hope you catch them!

  5. Also I found someone’s side view mirror in front of my home. It looks like it belongs to a large vehicle.
