West Seattle Crime Watch: Car thief adds insult to injury; another converter theft

Two more car crimes to report in West Seattle Crime Watch:

CAR STOLEN, 2 WEEKS AFTER GETTING HIT: Allison reports a car theft that hurts extra:

Our red 1997 Subaru Legacy Wagon was stolen last night between 5:45 – 7:30 pm on Avalon Way. License plate AGY2872. If anyone sees it around or parked somewhere please call 911? To add insult to injury, this was one of our cars that got hit on Avalon on 10/28/2013, the big hit-and-run where the gal flipped her Hyundai and totaled my little Tercel. Now the Subaru gets stolen? Really?? What the heck is going on around here??? This is not MY West Seattle!

ANOTHER CATALYTIC-CONVERTER THEFT: The one in last night’s Crime Watch roundup was the first one we had heard of in a while. Now there’s another. Janet e-mailed to report:

I just saw your Crime Watch post from last night, and wanted to add that our catsitter had the catalytic converter stolen from her truck parked on our street in Seaview late Sunday night or early Monday morning. She said it looked like they had used a sawzall or something along those lines.

P.S. Next community crimefighting meeting is Tuesday (November 19), West Seattle Crime Prevention Council, 7 pm at Southwest Precinct, all welcome.

    Having had cars stolen several times I question my stance against the death penalty each time I hear something like this.

    I just read the postings regarding Alan Povial an as I read the more upset I became. When I read the post regarding his sentancing an saw the 1-2 sentences about how the court room was empty. That not one single victim which includes all you that seem ok with sitting on your butts an whinning but are unwilling to back your words with action is what fired me up. If you couldnt even take time to go be heard by the judge then what right do you have complaining about his sentence? None what be the logical answer. Words are empty without action.

    No one saw someone using a sawzall on a vehicle? They’re so loud and quite large.

    Tracy D, part of the problem I suspect re empty court rooms is that the sentencing happens during working hours, so aggrieved victims and citizens aren’t usually able to get the time off. Also, finding information re where and when sentencing is happening is hard to find.

Sorry, comment time is over.
