West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen car in Seaview; prowler patrol

February 9, 2012 at 1:55 pm | In Crime, Highland Park, Seaview, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

Two reader reports to share this afternoon. First, from Kevin:

I’m writing to let you know that my 1996 Honda Accord was stolen off the street from in front of my house last night between midnight and 7 AM. I live in the 6000 block of 46th AVE SW between SW Graham and SW Raymond streets. It’s a four door Accord LX model. Maroon/Burgandy color. WA license plate 865 TZD. If you see it or have any information, please call the Seattle Police Dept.

(SPD suggests 911 if you see a stolen car.) Meantime, Jenni – who is a Block Watch captain in Highland Park – says they’re not taking car prowlers lightly in her neighborhood. This happened early Wednesday:

I went to check why my dog was barking& noted white male late 40s with graying facial hair trying to break into my neighbors SUV. I asked what he was doing and he fled via silver/gray 2 door sedan possibly ford no plate number obtained. I called 911 and some of our block watch went out on foot to patrol the surrounding streets. So, just another note about neighborhood block watch and calling police immediately.

She hasn’t heard whether an arrest was made, but notes that police arrived within five minutes of the 911 call. Meantime, Highland Park and other south West Seattle neighborhoods might be interested in this White Center event tonight: In case you missed the notice in our morning preview or on White Center Now, gang-activity trends, Metro Transit safety, and other topics are all on the agenda for the first in a series of Public Safety Forums presented by the North Highline Unincorporated Area Council, all welcome, 7 pm tonight at North Highline Fire District headquarters (1243 SW 112th – here’s a map).

  3. I live within a mile of where the 96 Honda was stolen , between SW Edmunds St and SW Findlay St. This morning around 5:30am while leaving for work I noticed a suspicious white male early 30′s black leather jacket, blue navy pants and navy blue beanie. Very suspicious looking around and have never seen him around the neighborhood. He made a couple turns down an alleys and proceeded west towards California.
