West Seattle Crime Watch: Car prowls; car vandalism; WS Crime Prevention Council to hear from Prosecuting Attorney’s Office

Three notes in West Seattle Crime Watch this afternoon. First, two car prowls reported this morning on the south end of Beach Drive – thanks to Whitney for the tip; they’re both listed on SPD’s Tweets by Beat (here’s our list of all West Seattle tweets) – they were in the 6000 and 6500 blocks of Beach Drive.

Second, from Chelsea:

I wanted to let you know about some vandalism happening in the 4800 block of Fauntleroy Way SW. On Saturday (10/6) between midnight and 7:00 a.m. the passenger side mirror was ripped off of my vehicle. The car was parked on Fauntleroy directly in front of my building in a well lit area. I heard two men arguing around 2:30 a.m. but can’t see the street from my unit. No other vehicles on the block were damaged.

This morning (10/10) at 7:30 a.m. I saw that another vehicle had the same damage (mirror broken and hanging from the wires). No other vehicles in the block were damaged. When I took the dog out at 10 p.m. last night, the vehicle was intact, so the damage happened sometime between 10 p.m. and 7:30 a.m.

I have filed an incident report with the police department.

Finally, the official announcement from the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council – the special guest for next week’s WSCPC meeting will be Ian Goodhew, chief of staff for the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Got a question about what happens AFTER someone is arrested? Why are plea bargains made? Why are sentencing recommendations sometimes seem light? He’s the expert. 7 pm Tuesday, October 16th, Southwest Precinct meeting room, all welcome.

    I was woken up about 2:30 am on Saturday by the sound of breaking glass and shouting. My bedroom window faces Fauntleroy and I saw 3 or 4 individuals walking North on Fauntleroy (I also live on the 4800 block) and saw one individual kicking cars. I called 911 and gave dispatch the best description that I could of the individuals and what I saw. I gave my cell phone number but never heard back from the police.

    My car was broken into this week (8th Ave SW & Elmgrove) because I forgot to set my alarm. Thankfully nothing more than loose change was taken and nothing was damaged. Still very annoying…
