West Seattle Crime Watch: Burglar interrupted

(WSB photo)

10:30 AM: Police are searching for a burglar in Upper Fauntleroy. He was interrupted while going through a garage in a house on California SW south of SW Sullivan – this is near WSB HQ and we found out about it when three SPD cars arrived down the street. Officers told us the burglar bolted eastbound between houses to the north of the break-in location and dropped some of what he had stolen. No description yet.

2:35 PM: According to neighbors, there’s a partial description – 20s, 5’7″, stocking cap with snowflakes or stars on it.

    What time was this? Are time stamps no longer available with the posts or comments?

    I wonder if that same burglar took my prescription sunshades from my car parked in a front of my house on 17th and Trenton…who can even use my shades. I just got them 2 days ago. Please help if you know anything about stolen items!!
