West Seattle Crime Watch: Burglary, car break-in reports

August 2, 2012 at 7:20 am | In Crime, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports: First, a resident who requested anonymity says her husband came home from work to discover their home in the 3000 block of 45th SW had been burglarized. Someone broke a window and locked their dogs outside while stealing various valuables. She says a neighbor saw a black SUV around 3 pm that might have been related to the break-in.

And Ryan on 46th between Dakota and Andover says his car was broken into either late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. He notes the prowler broke the street-side rear passenger window.

One more reminder that Night Out – a chance to close your (non-arterial) street and gather with neighbors to talk about looking out for each other – is next Tuesday, 6-9 pm, and Seattle Police hope to have all interested participants signed up by the end of the week – go here. (And if you’re having a block party, let us know too – editor@westseattleblog.com – we’ll have photographers making the rounds again to catch some of the West Seattle street scenes.)

  1. Does the black SUV look run down and longer than most suv’s? I’ve seen one around my neighborhood lately that looks suspect

  4. Re the burglary: We live one block south. On Thursday afternoon, my next-door neighbor told me that mid-morning he had seen a young man in our alley, moving slowly, stopping at each house and looking in the backyards. He’d go between garages for a while, then come back out, all the while doing something with his phone. He crossed the street and continued this behavior into the alley of the 3000 block, so my neighbor called the police and reported it, after snapping the guy’s photo. My neighbor speculates that he may have been looking up addresses and calling home phones to see if anyone answers, or maybe looking for interesting stuff in backyards to come back and get later. Description: white male, 18-25, tall and slender, shaggy hair, baggy shorts, carrying shoulder-slung knit bag.

  5. My car was broken into yesterday between about 1:30 and 2pm while it was parked behind key bank at the junction. They took my bag which had my laptop in it. I was only gone for 20 minutes. And just a couple of months ago my harley was stolen. Not sure I want to live in seattle anymore….
