West Seattle Crime Watch: Two theft reports – car, package

April 12, 2014 at 5:58 pm | In Crime, West Seattle news | 6 Comments

Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports – first, a stolen car:

The photo and report were texted (206-293-6302 any time); the car is described as a 1997 Honda EK Civic hatchback stolen last night from the owner’s home near 17th and Henderson (map). It’s been reported to police, so please call 911 if you see it.

Second – Leeann reports a package theft in the 5400 block of 25th SW (map): “Just wanted to let you know that we had a package shipped to us that was tracked and shows being delivered on 4/9, but was nowhere to be found when we got home.” This too has been reported to police.

P.S. Next Tuesday is the monthly West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting; if you have a neighborhood crime/safety concern, come and bring it to the attention of precinct management. 7 pm at the Southwest Precinct (Delridge/Webster; map), also featuring, after crime-trend updates and neighborhood-concern comment time, a presentation about the SPD Crisis Intervention Team.


  1. The car was just posted on craigslist for sale…

  2. @C do you mean the same year and make/model car, or THE SAME CAR?

  4. The photos are the exact same ones that were texted to us (the first three, anyway, Oregon plate and all). Which could mean either the car was for sale (although the phone number is not the same) or that the car’s owner pulled photos for ‘a car like this’ and didn’t explain that. I am trying to contact the owner to find out.

  5. Update: The owner said it had been for sale … until stolen.

  6. Maybe I am missing something here, but the CL ad has a time stamp of 11:17 AM today, Saturday the 12th.

    And the owner has claimed to WSB it was stolen last night, Friday the 11th?

    How could it be stolen last night and put up for sale this morning? Curiouser……
