Four reader reports to share today, starting with a package theft caught on video:
Pam says the video shows her
Netflix Amazon package being lifted Wednesday afternoon near 12th and Barton – and right before the person comes fully into view, they took mail out of her mailbox. Recognize the person in the video? (Added: Here’s a frame grab.) Let police know.
Ahead, three more reports – a car prowl, illegal dumping, and suspicious nail-scattering:
First, the car prowl – Sarah reports:
We just wanted to let you know that our car was prowled sometime overnight (4/16 – 4/17). Nothing was stolen (fortunately we didn’t have anything in the car) and there wasn’t any damage. We thought we had all the doors locked, but apparently one wasn’t. That won’t happen again. Just to let you know that somebody is going up and down the streets trying car doors until they find one unlocked. We live in the 2100 block of 47th Ave SW.
Even if nothing is taken, and there’s no damage, PLEASE report car prowls – police repeated that request again at Tuesday night’s West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting (as reported here).
Mike shares the aftermath of illegal dumping – yes, it’s a crime – near Schmitz Park Elementary:
He says the dumpers were in an F250/F350 Supercab or Crewcab, red, 4×4, and adds: “Next time they could fill the potholes in the dirt/rock alleyway and throw away the plastic.” He’s reported it to the city.
And as we were writing this, Jill e-mailed to report what looked like a possibly deliberate scattering of small nails in the southbound bicycle lane on Delridge Way near Home Depot last night. We recommended a Forum post with details, so watch for that.
