West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen items to look for, and more

May 28, 2012 at 10:36 am | In Crime, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

In comparison to OTHER parts of the city – where yesterday, for example, brought six shooting reports in the span of about 18 hours (all chronicled on SPD Blotter) – it’s been a relatively quiet holiday weekend in West Seattle. But not devoid of incidents; beyond a few we’ve already covered, we’ve received miscellaneous reader reports, including two break-ins with loot that you’re asked to be on the lookout for – read on:

Craig on Puget Ridge says someone stole a 12-year-old girl’s bicycle from her mom’s garage near 17th/Juneau on Puget Ridge. “As you could probably assume, she is very sad.” It’s a pink bike with the words “Awesome Giant” on it.

Another theft – Jeff says “a very specific colorful ski jacket” was stolen from his truck on 47th in Fauntleroy last week, along with other items:

The patch says “City League Team Ski Racing, Est. 1984.” If you have seen it, he requests that you contact police and “refer to incident # 12-158723.”

On Saturday morning, Elana on 42nd SW in Arbor Heights discovered her “back gate open, a patio chair knocked over, and buckets knocked over next to the shed. It appears that someone came in and took a look around, tried to get into the storage and then left when they realized they were going to have to break the lock to gain entry.

And from the WSB Forums, a report of egging in Highland Park last night/early today – read it here.

  1. For people who have gates in the backyard I suggest putting a padlock on them at night. I’ve been doing it for years because nobody needs to be wandering around in my yard at night.
