West Seattle Crime Watch: Another stolen van; more stolen patio furniture; stolen boat

Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports this morning:

ANOTHER STOLEN VAN: Both vans stolen last week and reported here were spotted and returned to their owners; maybe you’ll be the one to find the van taken from Staci‘s home:

Our gray 2004 Toyota Sienna was stolen last night from the street in front of our house, 21st & Roxbury, between the hours of 12:00 am – 8:00 am. License plate 660 XPY.

If you see it, call 911.

MORE STOLEN PATIO FURNITURE: From a Highland Park resident:

My Pier 1 Bird cage hanging chair with a beautiful flower woven into the back was stolen with the turquoise cushion attached last night around midnight. My dogs barked and they chased something that I thought was a raccoon. It must have been the people stealing the chair. It was out of view and I didn’t check around because I thought they were chasing an animal and called them back in. My house is on the 9000 block of 13th Ave SW.

That’s the second stolen-patio-furniture report we’ve published in recent days. Meantime, as we finished this, we just got word of this theft:

STOLEN BOAT: From Marlo:

*Stolen boat out of Jack Block Park.*

We last used it three weeks ago. It’s a 22-foot Four Winds. We were headed out today to volunteer our boat for a family camp in Olympia to give tubbing rides to the kids when my husband noticed it was not there.

    Definitely lame about all of the theft. Was the boat at the West Seattle Outside Storage then? The article wasn’t clear since it just said Jack Block Park.

      Nic, that’s how it was reported. Since they said they hadn’t used it in a few weeks, that’s the only storage place at the park I know of – in a regular parking spot it would have long been towed.

    Rat bastards.

    Myself and 4 neighbors all had our patio furniture stolen. We discovered all of it on Offer Up. We located the house but the police did not help get our things back even though we knew the address and had proof.

    All patio furniture should be made of concrete.

    Really Jc? That’s totally rotten :(

    Unless I am missing something but from that photo it doesn’t look like a 22-footer. Looks more like 16 or 18-foot?

    @Jc, You should follow up on this with SPD since they specifically changed their policy to start enforcing property crime. You should also email Danny Westneat from the Seattle Times who wrote a story that instigated this policy change.

    Staci’s van was found tonight, her ex husband decided to take a different route home from Auburn tonight (via Burien first ave south) when he spotted what he thought might be the stolen van turn on to 1st ave from 116th SW and when got caught up in traffic realized that it was the stolen van followed it and was trying to call 911 but cell phone was almost dead. The van stopped like they were going to pick up another person from the side of the road. He confronted them and they sped off with the side door still wide open. He lost them on 108th SW and was told by 911 operator that the officers in the area would be alerted (all 2 king county sheriffs working the area got to love funding). Headed home to charge the cell phone and headed back out 10-15 minutes later. Was headed towards were they were last seen and found the van in the parking of Mount View Elementary in a handicapped parking space ( really to they have no respect). Thanks to the King County Sheriff for collecting as much evidence as possible and being very professional (hope they catch them).
