West Seattle Crime Watch: Car, double stroller stolen

August 22, 2012 at 4:06 pm | In Crime, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

Two theft reports in West Seattle Crime Watch this afternoon – if you have information on either, please call police. First, from Scott G:

I just wanted to get the word out that my 1990 Chevy Pickup was stolen from my driveway near 34th Ave SW and SW 108th St sometime last night between midnight and 8am.

It was dark red (I think Burgundy is the official color), is a full-size pickup with a king cab, and is distinctive in that the passenger side rear window sliding window is missing and is duct taped over with white plastic (not theft-related).

Plate # is B97040L.

There was a child’s car seat in the back seat, and the side and rear windows are tinted.

Also, the joke is on the thieves, in a sense, because it doesn’t run well at all. I think it is only running on 7 cylinders, and sounds really rough and is fairly loud (as most older 8-cylinder trucks are).

I’ve reported it to the police.

And from Shoshanna:

My husband and I are both public school teachers with two young kids and not a lot of extra money. Today we came home and saw that someone had stolen our double bike stroller from outside our apartment. It was parked under the stairs of our building and not visible from the sidewalk. We use it often and are very saddened that it was taken. It is a Schwinn double bike stroller, bright yellow color.
We live in a quad-plex on 44th and Alaska.


  1. This morning, the truck was described by an AH resident witness —”"This morning at about 630 we saw a maroon Chevy truck parked next to our fence at the ARK Park(behind the Arbor Heights Comm. Church), with no one in it. A few minutes later a young man got in the truck and drove off. He was messing with a neighbor’s lawn mower, stuff was removed from it. He then drove of down the alley between 100th & 102nd and 41st & 42nd. His plate number is B970—. He is looking for stuff so please watch out for him.”

  2. Seriously, a stroller?! That has GOT to be a new low.

  3. Sounds like he stole the truck for mobility to commit other crimes. Not uncommon. He doesn’t care if it’s running on 7 cylinders.

  4. Got on the blog this morning becuase someone rummaged through our trash last night and actually took a trash bag from our grabage bin. We’re in Arbor Heights near 100th and 44th.
