West Seattle Crime Watch: Burglar(s) steal memories

In West Seattle Crime Watch today – a reader report from Kyle:

My family’s home was burglarized (Monday) afternoon.

I came home from work to find my back door kicked in and two Apple computers stolen as well as an XBOX one, Samsung sound bar, etc. The bad thing is the iMac that was stolen had our entire 7-year-old’s life of pics and movies on it! We have most saved on an external hard drive but it still hurts.

We live in the Westwood area and just wanted to spread a warning that people who don’t care about other humans are on the prowl. If you see an older iMac or MacBook Pro with a dent in the top, please let us know. Thanks!

And one more reminder that a briefing on local crime trends is on the agenda for tonight’s West Seattle Block Watch Captains Network meeting – all welcome, block-watch captain or not – 6:30 pm at the Southwest Precinct, 2300 SW Webster.

     Back in December someone “tried” breaking into our house (North Shorewood area) and the Police said what saved us was the extra long screws holding our deadbolt in and he said that everyone should install them. So Kyle now that you must replace your door and lock buy the extra long screws and don’t use the ones that come with the lock. Sorry you lost those items and memories!

    Kyle, this exact scenario happened to us last Friday in Highland Park. My iMac was taken (along with video and audio gear, roller derby skates, Kindles) and it also contained all our family photos and videos. No help from our homeowners insurance and we are out almost 5k in belongings that we can’t afford to replace. I hope you can replace what was stolen, and I hope the police catch the people doing this before they break into the wrong house and meet up with the wrong end of a shotgun. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
