West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen ‘old-school mountain bike’; condo-building mail theft

The weather has calmed and we’re on to other news. First, two quick West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports:

STOLEN BICYCLE: Derek first posted this in the WSB Forums:

My bicycle was stolen from my yard at 46th & Charlestown. Let me know if you see it?

Blue old-school mountain bike. Gary Fisher Hoo Koo e Koo. Bike pump, rear mountain rack with fender, and cat-eye headlight & tail lights.

It’s not worth a lot of money, but it’s been my main ride since 1993.

He hasn’t turned up a photo to share, but says his bike looks a lot like this.

STOLEN MAIL: From Nathan:

I live in the condos at 3271 Avalon Way and it appears that someone broke into our mailboxes last night. I’m on the HOA board, and someone else on the board has already contacted police about it, so I assume there will be a police report about it eventually.

It appears that someone used a crowbar to pry into the mailboxes. Hopefully other condos/homes were not affected.

    There is a blue bike in the bushes in front of my neighbors house. On 46th, 3 houses down from Genesee.

    Thanks ajh! I just took a look. It resembles mine closely in style, but that’s not mine. It’s a Specialized Hard Rock GS, if anyone is looking for that one. I was tempted to claim it as a trade with the universe, but I hope this one at least finds its rightful owner.

Sorry, comment time is over.
