West Seattle Crime Watch: Police search in South Delridge

1:11 PM: SPD is searching in the Delridge/Trenton area for a possible burglary suspect. That’s what the heavy police presence is about. More as we get it.

1:14 PM: You might soon see/hear Guardian One in the area to help with the search. No official description from police.

1:23 PM: Partial description of the suspect: Buzzcut, 20s, gray backpack with yellow trim. A neighbor says police also said the suspect was described as white or Asian.

3:18 PM: The search ended without word of an arrest. We now know the burglary was in the 8800 block of 22nd SW.

ADDED FEBRUARY 17TH: Aerial video from the search, available via this new YouTube channel:

    Yep. Guardian One overhead right now (1:21). Must be more than just a burglary. This is a pretty high callout – at least 20 or so cars, and those are the ones I have seen in the area. Focus is around the Delridge/Trenton intersections (and the surrounding blocks).

    I can see guardian one flying over repeatedly. I hope they catch the guy. There’s been such an influx of crime around here. So sad.

      It was indeed a burglary; Guardian 1 also has confirmed that via Twitter.

    They’ve got a few blocks cordoned off just east of Delridge/Trenton intersection over to Henderson St and Guardian 1 has been flying over for the last 15 mins

      Gia, while interesting, that is not the same incident. That was a stolen-car recovery yesterday (note the date), not in West Seattle.

Sorry, comment time is over.
