West Seattle Crime Watch: Backpack gone in a flash

One more West Seattle Crime Watch note this afternoon. From Nancy:

This afternoon … someone stole a backpack from my husband’s car. He parked in front of our house for a couple minutes to check on one of our kids and when he went back out to the car it was gone. His wallet and a laptop were in it. We’re assuming that those are long gone but hoping that the thief dumped the backpack somewhere. There was some paperwork in it that has absolutely no monetary value but would be a huge hassle to replace. Can you ask your readers to let you know if they come across an abandoned black backpack in the North Admiral / Admiral neighborhood?

Next community crimefighting meeting, by the way, will be the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council, 7 pm Tuesday, October 15th, at the Southwest Precinct (Delridge/Webster); president Richard Miller told WSB last night that he is still finalizing the guest speaker(s) plan.

    I saw a laptop and cord (along with some other things) on the wall in front of Hiawatha right by the bus stop on California (across the street from the gymnastics place). It was there at 4pm…I hope it’s his and that it is still there!

    Happening now in nearby boulevard park, cops, helicopters, shots fired… stay safe out there!

    Thanks for the tip RP. Unfortunately, by the time we got there everything was gone. We’re hoping that a good samaritan picked them up and turned them in. We’re filing a police report but if someone out there happens to be that good samaritan, please call me at 206-794-6048.

    I’m sorry. I also live in the admiral neighborhood. Our house was broken into on Monday. Very visible house kicked in the door. Took iPads and my son’s backpack. These kids have balls. We have an alarm that saved it from being worse. Be extra careful to secure your property. Jerks

    It doesnt matter if your home is secure or not. If you’re not home and they want in, they will break a window and help themselves. Bastards! This hapened to our home a couple of months ago. They got away with 5G of stuff. Yes, while I was at work, working for a living, trying to make ends meet and not be a statistic, these #@$*& take from me. I have dogs, that did not detour them. So much time was lost/wasted on this, costing me even more.

Sorry, comment time is over.
