West Seattle Crime Watch: 3 reader reports

December 6, 2012 at 9:24 pm | In Crime, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

Two Three West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports tonight A Fairmount Springs-area neighbor sends word of this:

Sometime before 3 pm today, someone broke into my neighbor’s home in the 5900 block of 39th SW (map), through a back window, which backs to the alley between 39th and Fauntleroy. Items taken were cash, a gun, and jewelry – only the good jewelry (including family heirlooms); the costume items were left.

And in Seaview, a resident who also wanted to stay anonymous wondered if anyone had a package stolen Wednesday evening:

Around 5:30 pm three teenagers (one male, two females) walked E on SW Findlay, turned S on SW 44th and walked to SW Juneau. I noticed one had a package hidden under a jacket. They met up with a car at SW 44th and SW Juneau (map). It was a dark-colored sedan with Virginia license plates. … I reported it to the police.

And if you do fall victim to package theft – even if you’re dealing with the sender regarding a replacement, do report it to police – you can even file the report online if the value is under $500.

ADDED 9:59 PM: After publishing this, we received a report from Jenn:

I wanted to send you an e-mail to let you know that we have (within the last 2 weeks) mail and packages stolen from our front porch. Packages specifically stolen on 11/24 and 11/28. Mail stolen on 11/24. While taking our garbage this weekend, we found, in our bushes, mail from multiple addresses around our neighborhood. This seems to be an ongoing issue.

They’re in the 7100 block of 47th SW (map), near Lowman Beach.

  1. I’ve seen a the dark colored sedan (Virginia plates) in our neighborhood, a couple of blocks south of the Junction. This was last Sunday. One white kid with a teal colored baseball hat, one black kid with a dark hooded jacket. Not sure if this is a coincidence.

  2. Usps mail theft is a federal crime. FBI is who I believe deals with that. Any package sent from out of state also falls into that category.

  5. I got a good look at them. They are old enough to be charged as adults.
