Another stolen Subaru to watch for – topping tonight’s West Seattle Crime Watch roundup of reader reports. From Jeff:
Our car was stolen from in front of our house near 50th and Edmunds sometime between 10:00 pm last night and 9:00 am this morning. It’s a green 1998 Subaru Legacy wagon with a roof rack, license number 961 VBQ. Please call the police if sighted.
Thanks to the Seattle Police for being extremely helpful and prompt. An officer was here to take my report within half an hour of my call, and by the time I checked it had already been posted online. I really appreciate their responsiveness!
Ahead, two car prowl reports, from the Alki/Beach Drive vicinities:
Car prowls, reported by Marci:
My car on Aikins Avenue SW, a small, dead-end road above La Rustica, was broken in to Saturday night. When we got up on Sunday morning, all doors and the trunk were open. There was nothing of value inside except about $20 in the glove box which they took. They then went down our dead-end street and riffled through a Jeep as well.
We live in an out-of-the-way place, our street is very hard to find, and there are street lights all over. I just find this amazing and saddening all at one time.
And Erica reports trouble in Upper Alki. Her street also is usually “pretty quiet,” she writes, but when she and her boyfriend went looking for “misplaced keys,” they discovered it hasn’t been so quiet after all – their neighbor told them “that her truck was rifled through (nothing stolen) and then our neighbor down the street a little ways saw someone creeping around her garage. This all happened late Saturday night – seems odd because my boyfriend had valuables in his car, but (neither) the valuables (nor his car!) were stolen. Anyways, just wanted to give others in our area a heads up. We live off Admiral Way on 57th Ave SW (3200 block).
One more quick reminder: West Seattle Crime Prevention Council, 7 pm tomorrow, Southwest Precinct (Delridge/Webster), all welcome, police reps always on hand to share and hear neighborhood crime news.
