West Seattle Crime Watch: New restaurant’s fence stolen; hit-run

Two notes in West Seattle Crime Watch today. First, the case of the stolen fence:

That fence used to be in front of the newly opened Duos Lounge on Avalon Way. While we were corresponding with co-owner Benjamin Jury, he mentioned their fence had been stolen: “It went missing sometime between 8:30 am and 12:30 pm on Sunday.” And, he says, some workers even were in the Duos kitchen at the time. If you have any clues, contact police.

Next – the search for a hit-run driver, or at least a witness – since the victim says there are two places this might have happened.

Kat shared the photo and writes:

My car was hit (Monday) sometime between 11 am and 12 pm on California Ave. Driver’s side door.

I was getting a mammogram at the Swedish Mobile unit (3400 California SW) and was parked behind it on the street. I didn’t notice it when I got into my car but there was a lot of traffic and I was just trying to get into my car.

I went to lunch at the Royal India Grill (2342 California Ave. S.W.) and parked across the street on California between the Admiral Theater and Mission. I noticed the damage right away as I walked toward my car. If anyone has any info, please e-mail me at shezahipchick@yahoo.com

P.S. While this would normally be the night for the monthly West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting, like many community groups, they’re skipping December; school security – a topic planned long before last week’s Connecticut massacre – is on the agenda for the January meeting (7 pm Tuesday, January 15th, Southwest Precinct).

    So sorry, probably dumbass crackheads. Probably already at scrap metal for $$ place. I can’t believe that off Avalon someone didn’t see removal in action. Better welcoming for you than this.

    I just noticed a dark green Astro Van pull over on Atlas Pl as I was heading out. I passed a FedEx van coming down the road. I turned around and the gentleman moved his vehicle near my house. I watched him get out of the van and enjoy the view for 10 seconds and drive away. It did not seem right until I notced an Amazon package at the house he was in front of. I now have the package until my neighbor comes home. Keep your eyes and ears open people. Lets protect one another.

    Sounds like the same van that was here in White Center ran those people out of here a few months ago, I think if its the same people one guy walks around with a sports bag and sales achole out of that bag, I told him to scram.

Sorry, comment time is over.
