Two incidents to report in West Seattle Crime Watch, plus a reminder:
RITE-AID CASH-MACHINE THEFT ATTEMPT: Thanks to everybody who tipped us about the broken doors at the Rite-Aid store south of The Junction. One person reported a big police presence investigating around 6:30 am. A store employee confirmed to us that it was an attempt to steal the cash machine – which was reportedly found with a chain around it. The machine and the store were both in full operation when we stopped in.
CAR WINDOW SMASHED: Megan reports this happened overnight:
FYI- car window smashed out sometime between 9 pm (2/13) and 12:30 am (2/14) on 20th/Kenyon. Hoping nobody else in the neighborhood had to deal with a similar mess.
REMINDER: The West Seattle Crime Prevention Council‘s next meeting is 7 pm Tuesday (February 16th) at the Southwest Precinct (2300 SW Webster). Bring your neighborhood concerns/questions for police. Spotlight guest will be from the city to talk about its new alert.seattle.gov system.
