11:31 PM FRIDAY: In West Seattle Crime Watch tonight – two stolen cars in Westwood, one taken, one found.
STOLEN FROM WESTWOOD VILLAGE: Mel reports a cousin’s car was stolen today from the parking lot near QFC at the shopping center. It’s a green 2000 Honda CR-V with license plate AVT1519, big ding on the front passenger side, license plate inside the car’s front passenger side, “Hawaiian warrior head on the rear-view mirror,” and the sign at right is on the passenger back-side window. (“Keiki” is Hawaiian for child.)
FOUND ACROSS FROM WESTWOOD VILLAGE: A texter reported finding this car earlier today and confirming it had been stolen:
It’s a Honda Civic, plate ALV4567. The finder reported it to police – so if it’s yours, hopefully you’ve long since gotten word of that.
12:50 AM SATURDAY P.S. Not related to either of those two cases so far as we know, but – Heidi e-mailed, wondering about a helicopter heard from North Arbor Heights after midnight. According to this tweet, it was Guardian One, helping with an ultimately unsuccessful search for car prowlers in White Center.
