Three West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports: First, Toddy‘s home in Upper Morgan was burglarized, and she’s hoping to get one particular thing back:
We were burglarized on Friday sometime between 10 am and 12 noon. We were out and they jumped up on the back roof of our house, climbed up the roof to the second floor, and slit the screen and jumped in the window that was open. They took our iPad, iPhone, Dell laptop computer, my diamond engagement ring, other jewelry including both of our gold school rings, a sentimental gold lion charm from my mother, my husband’s wallet with credit cards and such, and many other things that they will realize do not mean anything to them but mean a lot to us. All of our photos and videos were on the laptop and are so very special to us.
The police came and basically spent 5 minutes and provided us paperwork and sort of made it seem like “join the club.” We just feel so violated and I hate that someone was in my family home rifling through our things. … (The stolen Dell laptop) has the only (un-backed up) short video of my 97-year-old grandmother saying how she met my grandfather – that is really the
only thing I want back. They can keep the rest.
Two other reports ahead:
A South Delridge resident reports a car-prowl attempt:
Light complected male between 5’11”-6’2″, possibly Asian, bald, gray hoodie, blue jeans, attempted to break into one of my neighbor’s cars; looks like he was dropped off in our alley by a beige/tan late 1990-early 2000 model of Toyota sedan. A car alarm on a car in the alley next to our building went off & that prompted the attempted thief to scurry away but looks to have been picked up by the beige/tan Toyota, did not see the cause of the car alarm in the alleyway. Nothing appears to have been stolen from the car.
And Seth spotted a suspected stolen car
(Saturday) about 8 am … walking thru garage under Jefferson Square Safeway, I saw a red and black Chevy truck running with windows down and no one inside. An hour later, still running ,and then about 1030 I went by it on the way to QFC and since it was there still running, keys in it and a GPS on dash, I called the police. Not sure what happened but I am guessing it was stolen. There was a pile of clothes and a few bicycle items (seat, basket) on bench next to Subway there. Guessing it was things from the truck.
