West Seattle Crime Watch: 3 reader reports – 1 to 4 wheels

Three reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch this morning, starting with the case of the stolen unicycle, reported by Jenn:

We were on 35th and Brandon. Sunday between 5:30 and 7:30, the red unicycle was stolen from the bed of our pickup. It was a birthday gift from my daughter’s grandpa. She is taking it well, but it sucks that someone thought it should be theirs just because it didn’t have a lock on it. It’s not worth much, and I called a few pawn shops, but they don’t seem to be interested in unicycles. So, I am hoping that it will turn up in the bushes somewhere!

On Saturday, Ari woke up to discover a bicycle thief had struck:

We heard some noise around 11pm (Friday night) but hadn’t paid it much mind. On the intersection of 29th Ave SW & SW Othello st. It was a vintage green Fairway Flyer.

Finally, a car theft thwarted early today – around midnight – by a Highland Park resident who doesn’t want to be identified:

Someone just broke into and tried to steal my ’96 Honda Accord from my driveway. They weren’t scared off by the flood lights, but ran when they saw me look out the window. Kudos to the cops for quick response, but my ignition is destroyed. This was on the 7500 block of Dumar Way SW, just up the hill from Home Depot. This is only a couple of blocks from where a car was stolen on 18th and Holden.

Yet another reminder: Night Out block parties, one week from tonight – sign up ASAP! And please let us know if you’re having one.

    I can’t believe the unicycle was stolen. I feel bad for the little girl and for her grandpa. Sad story :(

Sorry, comment time is over.
