West Seattle Crime Watch: 2 stolen Accords to watch for

June 12, 2014 at 11:39 am | In Crime, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

We mention stolen cars here (among other stolen items) whenever we hear about them, in case that helps get them back (as happened with Paul‘s car, found by Barb the other night). So here are two more we just got word of – both ’92 Accords. first, from Jason:

My white 1992 Honda Accord was stolen at 3060 SW Avalon way on Monday afternoon, in between 2 pm and 5 pm. It’s a 4 door, it has a silver Superman sticker on the back window, and the plate is AEG2888 with a Western Washington University Alumni frame on the back. Please let me know if you have any information!!

And from Marshall:

Last Saturday night my 1992 dark blue Honda Accord 2 door LICENSE PLATE AGW2562 was stolen from the Lincoln Park neighborhood area. Generally between Solstice Park and Lincoln Park between Austin and Kenyon. Car is very dark blue with large areas of peeling paint on roof and trunk, some slight recent peeling paint on hood, slight dent in driver door noticeable from squished Black rub strip, grey interior. Usually the cars are abandoned by now but this car had a full tank of gas and some emergency money in the glove box so it may take longer for the crackheads to run out of use. If seen, please call 911 and/or take a picture with your phone of anyone you see in near or using the car, $200 reward if found. Thank you!

(Lincoln Park, by the way, is where you’ll find next Tuesday’s West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting.)

  1. My opinion…I don’t think it’s worth it to own a Honda Accord in WS???

  2. It’s not a WS thing. It’s the most-stolen car in the entire country – the older models, not the newer ones. Google most-stolen cars and you will get an endless stream of lists like this one https://www.nicb.org/newsroom/news-releases/hot-wheels-2012

  3. The cops came to look at a white 90′s Honda in front of my neighbors house last night. I came over to see what the fuss was about and they said it was a stolen car. They were hauling it off with a tow truck. Might want to give them a call in case its yours (206) 233-2623

  4. I know that it’s not just a WS thing but since this is the WSB and most of the readers are from WS that’s why I made that comment.

  6. BUY A CLUB – MOST 90S ACCORDS ARE STOLEN MAINLY TO JOYRIDE, THEY ARE EASY AS PIE TO TAKE AND NOT WORTH MUCH, JUST THAT SMALL DETERRANT WILL 99% OF THE TIME CAUSE THE THIEVES TO PASS YOURS UP AND CONTINUE THEIR SEARCH.

  7. According to news reports a lot of cars are being located/dumped in Bremerton or Bainbridge Island from being transported by ferry. I would start giving a constant updated list to the local West Seattle ferry terminal, and keep it updated. Give it to the onsite ferry security, plus the vehicles would be on their video cameras. That may be why West Seattle has such a high stolen car market.
