West Seattle Crime Watch: Car ‘ransacking’; theft/casing

Two car-crime notes in West Seattle Crime Watch this afternoon – first, from Erin:

I just wanted to share that my car was ransacked over night. We are (on 31st) between Myrtle and Othello. It seems as if they were just looking for money or valuables as all the contents of the center console were strewn about. Fortunately I didn’t have anything in there worth taking. Oddly, they left their gloves behind – one in the car and one next to the car on the ground. Just want to let everyone know so they remember to take all valuables out of their car.

And we have a car-theft report from an apartment resident at 9th/Kenyon in Highland Park; it was another resident’s car, so no description, but the person who e-mailed us about it says someone was seen potentially casing the area the preceding two nights.

    What kind of gloves were left behind? I’m on 31st between Othello and Webster (a block south of the person reporting this) and several days ago I saw some white latex gloves on the ground near my vehicle. I didn’t think much of it at the time (just figured it was trash that had blown around) but seeing this reminded me of it.
    My vehicle had not been bothered, but I leave nothing in it and it is always locked.
    If the person reporting this also found latex gloves, then there may well be someone working entire blocks checking cars.

Sorry, comment time is over.
