Two thefts in West Seattle Crime Watch tonight:
STOLEN BICYCLE: Watch for Callie‘s black Vilano road bike, stolen from outside 24-Hour Fitness at Westwood Village between 5 and 6 pm tonight. It’s been reported to police, so please let them know if you see it.
STOLEN PURSE: Danielle hopes the thief/thieves who took her purse out of her car might have just cast it aside, with her glasses still inside. Her car was broken into in an alley near her home by Fairmount Park Elementary, now being expanded for fall reopening:
The only item stolen was my purse and I am interested to know if anyone has maybe come across it. There was no cash inside and I canceled the credit/debit cards within 2 hours of the theft. The police officer told me that whoever stole it would probably have ditch the purse once the cards were canceled. The two purchases the thieves made I know of were made at the Shell gas station on Fauntleroy and the Rite Aid on California at 3:29 PM and 3:56 PM respectively. My eyeglasses were inside my purse and I need them to assist me with driving at night so I would be extremely happy if I could get them back.
The purse was an off white/cream color with a long arm strap. It was a fake leather type of texture with one small zipped-up pocket on the outside and a zipped-up wallet compartment on the other side of the purse (on the outside as well). The inside was black with one zip pocket. There were other items inside that I would love to get back that include my driver’s license and a pair of dark brown leather gloves. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I simply cannot believe this happened right outside my house and in the middle of the day! I had only been home for one hour and planned on leaving again soon so I didn’t bother to bring in my purse. I thought it was safe, but never again, I guess……
