Wintry weather didn’t keep the criminals home. We have four West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports this morning – three from the snow-showery overnight hours. First, be on the lookout for Jen’s stolen car:
My 1993 Honda Accord was stolen overnight. Car is a green 4-door sedan. Lic. #AIZ7501. The car was parked in the driveway in Fauntlee Hills between Donovan and Concord.
It has been reported to the police, so if anyone sees it they should call 911.
Ahead, two car prowls and a burglary:
At 3:45 this morning, my boyfriend woke up to the sound of someone moving our trash can and then walking on our gravel driveway (which is in the alley). He looked out the window and saw someone hunkered down by my vehicle. As soon as he turned on the light in our bedroom, they ran. This occurred near SW 39th and Morgan. Luckily, he caught them before anything was damaged or stolen!
Car prowler(s) struck in Elliott’s neighborhood:
I wanted to report my car was broken into sometime last night/early morning. Already reported to police. (8800 block of) 22nd ave SW. Just a few minor valuables taken, no damage done to vehicle or sign of forced entry on 2012 model year VW.
And KC reports a burglary, apparently interrupted:
My house in the 5400 block of 48th Ave SW was broken into (Tuesday) morning between 1130-1230. They got in through the kitchen window in the rear of the house. They ransacked the house and made a small pile of items to take. I think they had to flee quickly and left without taking anything. Police were called and a report was made. According to police, there has been a lot of activity in the Seaview neighborhood.
