West Seattle Crime Watch: Seen this stolen bicycle?

On Bike To Work Day, someone stole a bicycle from a West Seattleite who says she bikes to work often. Jane sent the photo and report:

My bike was stolen from in front of the Admiral Way Bartell Drugs on Friday, May 15. The cable lock was cut. It is a grey Raleigh (picture attached) with a rack attachment, very new. I would very much appreciate contact if seen, as I bike to work nearly every day.

As with other stolen vehicles – if you see it, please contact police.

P.S. Tuesday is the next West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting, 7 pm at Southwest Precinct (Delridge/Webster). Local crime trends and neighborhood concerns will be a centerpiece of the meeting, as always, but guests are booked too – former gang members who “will present their gang experiences and what it took for them to leave the gangs.”

    You know, I *think* I saw this bike in White Center yesterday, on 15th and 102nd. I was on my bike, and a guy crossed on the cross walk in front of me on a bike that looked really new and shiny. Sorry to be a judge of appearance, but his appearance and the newness of the bike seemed incongruous to me. I couldn’t tell what the make of the bike was cause his legs were there, and it was hard to read, which seeing this one with the white on grey that could be part of it. Long story to say: maybe I saw your bike, maybe I didn’t. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful!

    No doubt the Dirtbags under the bridge have it.

    Brenda,

    If you have evidence or crime information, please post it – and contact police.

    Otherwise, speculating about a crime and /or suspects of which you have zero first-hand information is not only wildly disrespectful to any person or group implicated, but also to the greater WS community who does not share your biases.

    If you find that you simply are unable to resist unfounded blame please find another outlet. The WSB is founded on news for, in, and about OUR community and is simply not an appropriate venue for fear mongering.
    Thank you.

Sorry, comment time is over.
