West Seattle Crime Watch: Van full of work tools stolen

Be on the lookout for his van full of work tools, stolen from the Westwood Village area. It’s a white 1995 Econoline utility van, no back or side windows, two ladder racks that – at least at the time of the theft – carried two yellow ladders. License plates are Washington B88338H; there’s no signage on the van, the owner says, but there’s a “crease in the back passenger side corner panel.” It was taken sometime between 10 pm Monday and 6 am Tuesday near 24th and Barton (map), and has been reported to Seattle Police, so if you see it or have information about it, call 911 (as SPD advises in its tweets about this and all stolen vehicles).

    My husband let me know we know the owner. He does some great work with those tools. Them being stolen is just terrible. Let’s hope he gets’m back soon.

    My van was stolen too about a week ago. I lost about 8 grand in tools but I did get my van back. I’ve heard more people having there vans either broke into or stolen. I wish the authority’s can catch these creeps stealing in our neighbor hoods. Please call the police if you see anything or people selling tools cheep to support there habits.

    My neighbor just had his van broken into in the 8100 block of 35th. Sounds like the thieves took all of his work tools – he is a painter. maybe this is the same person- what a chump. I would like to see westwood put up cameras.

Sorry, comment time is over.
