Speaking of stolen vehicles … minivan taken, ‘car seats & all’

West Seattle Crime Watch reader report from JW:

Our dark blue 2009 Toyota Sienna minivan was stolen last night from Fauntlee Hills at 3:15 am, car seats and all! WA plates 909YUE. Please call 911 if you see it.

We woke up to the alarm and watched the taillights disappearing up the street. At least one other neighbor’s car alarm had gone off at around 2.30am as well. Prowlers?

P.S. If you missed our report on this week’s West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting, published very early today – lots of quick updates on local police/crime.

    Crime of opportunity maybe?

    So hope for the best, but brace for bad news. Sometimes they take the cars and strip them and then abandon them. Sometimes loaded with other people’s mail. Nice. Sorry, this happens more than most of us realize. I hope they find your vehicle soon, JW – good luck.

Sorry, comment time is over.
