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.


  1. 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.

  2. 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…
