West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen truck; stolen/found car; casing

A truck just stolen in Gatewood tops this West Seattle Crime Watch roundup:

STOLEN TRUCK: Within the past hour or so, a black 2001 Ford Ranger, single cab, Washington plate B74060R, was taken from 37th/Thistle (map) in Gatewood. Its owner says police have already been there to take a report. If you see it, call 911 ASAP.

STOLEN/FOUND CAR: That wasn’t the only daytime car theft this weekend – Rob e-mailed us Saturday mid-afternoon about a blue 1993 Honda Civic taken from in front of his house in the 3300 block of SW 100th (map) in Arbor Heights, and just 20 minutes after his note, before we could even publish an item about it, he e-mailed again to say it had been found (he didn’t say where) and that they were off to retrieve it.

CAR CASING: Around 10:45 am Friday morning, a neighbor on 44th SW between Dakota and Andover (map) saw “three young teenage boys walking down 44th Avenue SW between Dakota and Andover checking all the car/vehicles’ doors. I opened my front door and hollered, ‘I’ve taken your picture,’ and they ran north on 44th.”

    Just walked past a 3-4 car police response in Admiral at around 47th. Not sure if it’s the same ‘disturbance’ as in the SPD tweet at 10am today.

      Not likely; the auto-tweets are delayed as it is, and disturbances are rather common, often-fleeting calls. Haven’t heard of anything big so far.

    Looks like the police caught someone for stealing a car in alley behind 7 11 at Avalon and 35th.

    Got back home late last night to find a tan Honda Civic parked in the neighbors field with the windows down. Looked at it with the neighbor this morning and it had been broken into like it was stolen . Geesh. I told the neighbor to report it as he doesn’t want it on his property.

    If it is yours I can get you in touch with the neighbor.

Sorry, comment time is over.
