The husk of my car (’95 Honda Civic) was recovered around 3 am this morning abandoned in the street in SE Seattle, stripped of engine, lights, and everything apparently of value, about 24 hours after being stolen from in front of my house in High Point.
Attached are choice photos of the remains – all non-valuable junk strewn throughout … and you can see where they sawed through the steering wheel to remove the (still intact and functioning) Club. The thieves were kind enough to leave my junk in my trunk (maps, snow/ice scraper, spare sneakers and boots, soft roof rack and straps – though they did take my emergency go-bag). They’re so efficient! Glad I have insurance.
From Sean today, this photo and report:
I just reported my stolen bike to SPD. It’s a white Raleigh Cadent FT-1 with a bike pump attached and front and back lights.
MAIL THEFT: From JV: “Not sure what time of day but it was during daylight hours, probably early afternoon on Monday, Feb. 10. A mail order prescription was taken from our mailbox on the street on California between SW 98th and Roxbury. Funny thing is that it was a laxative. I wonder what the street value is. A neighbor found the ripped open pouch down the street and called us and returned it so we could reorder. The rest of the mail was dumped in the street and soaked by the rain. No big loss, mostly junk mail.”
MYSTERY DOOR-KNOCK: First we had the mystery middle-of-the-night doorbell-ringing, now, overnight, we received a report of a mystery “someone (pounding) the heck out of my door in Arbor Heights at Marine View Drive SW and SW 102nd.”
