West Seattle Crime Watch: Burglar(s) steal widow’s keepsakes

February 16, 2013 at 2:35 pm | In Crime, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

Watch for that wedding ring – which belonged to the late husband of a West Seattleite who says her family’s home was broken into Friday. The burglary victim, who asked that her name not be used, says there were also irreplaceable items – photos of her late husband – on an iPod (described as “5th generation, blue”) taken by the burglar(s). The break-in happened sometime between 8 am and 3 pm Friday near 50th/Edmunds (map); if you have any information about the ring, or the burglary, contact police.

  1. That’s very close to the attempt at 48/Findlay in the afternoon. Wonder if the guy had anything on him when caught.

  2. So sorry, looks like no stone in it so easily to sell for gold, check WS Coins, and the pawn shops, specifically Captial Loans!

  3. With all of the robberies and theft of precious metals copper included why in this day and age of instant data can we not have laws that require all businesses buying gold or scrap metals to enter it into a data base that would record the name of the person and take a picture of sale item. If this was done I believe that stolen metals would be traceable as well as the person who stole them.
