West Seattle Crime Watch: Overnight bike thefts

August 13, 2012 at 4:47 am | In Crime, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

2 reader reports of bike thefts – including this one just in from Jenny:

Just wanted to report that a yellow Cannondale mountain bike was just stolen from our home about 30 minutes ago now. We heard the thief on our porch and then looked out the window and saw him ride off with it. This is on 41st SW between Edmunds and Hudson. So discouraging!!!

And Elena‘s Specialized-brand women’s road bike (blue, white seat, blue-striped tires) vanished from “inside a closed and locked gate in a condo building on Alki Point” late last Thursday/early Friday (she’s hoping for tips at mystolenbike123@gmail.com).

  1. Oh, the irony. Just finished reading the proposed bike-share story. Sharing is possible but stealing tends to prevail. Sorry about your bike.

  2. We’ve had an awful lot of bike thefts this summer. And a lot of bikes found, too. Have any of the missing bikes turned up? Got back to their owners?

  4. Leave your bikes inside. That’s what I’ve always done. Any bike outside is ripe for a stealin.

  5. KatherineL,

    Nothing new to say about the stolen yellow Cannondale mtn bike. We filed a police report, have checked a few pawn shops, and are keeping an eye out for anything suspicious on Craigslist.
