West Seattle Crime (etc.) Watch: Car theft; police rescue dog

Two notes this morning – one a crime, one something else that police handled overnight. First, from Chessa:

Our car was stolen in front of our house in Seaview (45th AVE between Juneau and Findlay) sometime between 10 pm and 6 am last night. It is a 1995 light brown (mocha?) Subaru Legacy wagon, license plate 704 YBN, WA plates. There’s a 2008 Obama-Biden on the left upper rear window corner, with some rust spots on the roof. We did, of course, file a police report. If any of your readers see it, we’d love to know!

Police ask that you call 911 if you spot a stolen car. Second note is not about a crime, but its appearance on SPD’s “Tweets by Beat” feed led one alarmed WSB’er to ask about it. Here’s the tweet:


This actually involved a case of police rescuing a lost dog, according to e-mail we received overnight from the dog’s owner, Betsy, who said her Siberian Husky broke out very early this morning but is home now:

Apparently she had made it from our house near Mount St. Vincent all the way to the high rise of the West Seattle Bridge. We are SO thankful for the Seattle police and a dog savvy citizen who was able to corral and catch her. We got a call from Officer Graham at about 5:30am while we were out combing the streets. He and his partner said they were both dog lovers and we are very, very thankful for everyone’s help. She immediately went to sleep when she got home.

  1. I’m so glad your dog is ok. I am a busdriver – I was driving over the West Seattle Bridge a few minutes before 5 AM – I was horrified to see a dog running back and forth across the lanes, fortunately I was able to avoid hitting her and I immediately called it in, but I worried about her for hours until I was able to see your post on WSB. No wonder she was tired! Again, I’m very happy for you and your dog and thanks for posting – I figured WSB was the the best place to find out what happened.
