West Seattle Crime Watch: Business burglary; crane climb

May 2, 2012 at 1:50 pm | In Crime, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

Two quick West Seattle Crime Watch notes this afternoon: First, a business burglary – a concerned customer texted us this morning to say they had heard Tony’s Market, the produce stand at 35th/Barton, had been hit by crime; we stopped in to check and the staff confirmed they had been burglarized overnight, but, they told us, the burglar(s) didn’t get away with much.

Second, police had to be called to the Youngstown Flats construction site at 26th/Dakota on Sunday night, according to the development team, when young trespassers were caught trying to climb the crane. The developers’ update says they broke through a “perimeter chain-link fence” to get to the crane, and so site security is being beefed up including “an additional barrier around the crane.”

  1. Sorry to hear about my beloved Tony’s Market. WHAT were the burglars thinking? I hope there wasn’t any damage. My heart goes out to the staff.
