Crime Watch: Break-in attempt; ‘suspicious trespasser’

Two reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch. First, from Alex:

Just wanted to let the blog know that there was an attempted home burglary at 48th and Graham this afternoon around 12:30. The suspects were 3 Caucasian men who were scared away before the police showed up. … They were seen on my parents’ deck by our neighbors, trying to open windows and our deck door.

And Melissa reports a “suspicious trespasser”:

We wanted to give a heads up to anyone in the area of Spokane/Manning/Admiral of a man in his late 20s/early 30s with chin-length hair, a beanie, jeans, and a dark hoodie, carrying a plastic bag, who at 5 am this morning trespassed onto our property and attempted to look in our garage and in our windows and then came to our front door but was deterred by our motion detector light. Not sure if he was looking to enter or for something easy to steal. We reported the incident to the police along with a photo of the man but wanted the neighborhood to be on the lookout as well.

Once you’ve called police, share the alert here … editor@westseattleblog.com, or 206-293-6302 (text or voice) if it’s urgent.

    If Melissa has a picture for the cops why not blast it on here for the world to see?

    They were trying our house on Eddy as well. Here are their photos. They were driving a late model 4 door silver BMW.

    What’s funny is I’ve seen a silver BMW in the Westwood area not that long ago just kind of randomly cruising around that I thought was pretty suspicious. I made sure they knew I was watching them and they left. Now I know that my suspicions were probably right.

    hmmm…..perhaps the same silver car used in the puget ridge shootings lately??

  • Eric March 5, 2016 (11:00 am)

    Is that the description of the car? It’d be nice to know what the description of the car is with the POS who flashed a gun near a school

    Dan:  I would strongly encourage you to print out this picture, put it in a plastic sleeve (I’ll bring some to you if you’d like) and staple them to every telephone pole in a 2 block radius for about a month.  I would bet they will come back but might be deterred if they know people have cameras and have them on film from a previous episode.

    Come on. Socks with sandals?

    Here is a close-up of the involved silver BMW (could not read license plate) from the 48th and Graham break-in attempts. The 3 individuals must have cased our neighborhood because they were acutely aware of concealing their faces whenever they went past particular houses with security cams. The driver is masking his face with a mask/panty hose of some type. Please keep an eye out.

    Yep, that looks like the same style BMW I saw cruising around my neighborhood

  • Waikikigirl March 6, 2016 (9:09 am)

    Really driving a BMW???? they must be burglarizing because they need the money for the car payment and insurance on that “beemer”!

    Hope these photos get them caught!

    • Roger March 6, 2016 (10:33 am)

      Hey, they’re at least being safe and wearing seat belts.

      Teens with money looking for some “fun.” Just great.

      Someone should be able to recognize the photo you’d think.

Sorry, comment time is over.
