Four West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports to share:
From Kami, a hit-and-run in Arbor Heights – with this damage done:
I live on 110th St SW and sometime (New Year’s Eve) my father in law’s car, which was parked on the street, was hit and sadly no note left. Part of their light and small pieces from their car were lying in our yard. It looks to be a GMC truck, white in color.
From Jen, tire-slashing near 45th and Lander:
I’m very late in sending this out but wanted to inform the community that last Sat. 12/28/13 we walked outside our house around 11:20am to find that both, my husband & my cars’ tires (the two on the driver’s side) were either slashed or punctured. We found a slash mark on the back of his tire on the driver’s side. …
Since the damage was over $500, an officer had to come to our house to file a report. We’re hoping it’s a random act & no one else has to deal with this expensive and time-sucking ordeal.
All mailboxes at Green Acres apartments were broken into Monday evening. 5656 California Avenue.
Just want to let you know my car was broken into between Friday the 27th 3 pm and Monday the 30th 10 pm. Didn’t use my car for a few days; it was parked in the alley between 42nd and 41st (in) north Morgan junction.
Took registration and a power inverter. May have gotten scared off as it seems only the glove box and dash pocket were gone through. Doors were still locked – that’s really weird.
I’ve taken everything else out of the car, nothing of value in there in the first place anyway. Just moved to the WS area 4 months ago…what a welcome!
P.S. The West Seattle Crime Prevention Council resumes its meetings this month – 7 pm Tuesday, January 21st, at the Southwest Precinct (Delridge/Webster).
