West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen car in Gatewood

August 14, 2012 at 10:12 am | In Crime, Gatewood, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

After a wave of stolen-bike reports, this morning, a stolen car – Ann hopes you can help find hers:

This morning we woke up to find that my 2000 green Honda CRV had been stolen. It was parked outside our home in the 3900 block of SW Austin St. [map] SPD has been notified. It has an aftermarket spare tire on the back and a yellow KEXP sticker on the upper right side of the back window and a worn Rat City Rollergirls sticker on the left side of that same window. We would appreciate everyone keeping an eye out for it.

As of this writing it’s not yet on the SPD @getyourcarback Twitter feed but should eventually turn up there. (The latest tweets from that feed, by the way, are featured on the WSB Crime Watch page.)

  1. I’m not sure if this helps but I live at the corner of Othello and Blake and this morning as I was returning home from dropping my boyfriend off at work there was a a man (not sure of the age – only could see him from behind) walking up Othello towards California at 4:30am – not something that I see to often. He had a hooded sweat shirt on with his hood up and kept looking around. It made me a little nervous. I can’t be sure where he was going or if he was doing anything wrong – just wanted to mention – since it seemed odd to me.

  2. A lot of shifty things going on. Last night my wife and I were walking home approaching the baseball field across from Chief Stealth. As we approached the south stairs two high school girls ran past us down the stairs giggling. We got to the top and saw that they apparently set fire to something on a fence near the trees on the East side of the field. My wife called 911 and I tried my best to put it out with dirt and a nearby stick. Fire dept. Response was FAST, 4 minutes tops. Still there was nobody else around and with the hot weather lately it could have been a big blaze in no time.

  3. Thanks for the update, DC – we saw that call but heard fire department having trouble finding it (at least while we were listening) so weren’t sure where to go to try to get pictures. Glad you were around to report it – TR
