West Seattle Crime Watch: Burglars hit O’Neill Plumbing

Another West Seattle business has been hit by burglars. This time, O’Neill Plumbing (WSB sponsor) in Morgan Junction. Tim O’Neill tells WSB that they “cut open a fence, punched out locks on trucks, and made off with several tools.” They have surveillance video and are offering a reward. First video shows the burglars’ truck arriving:

Second shows one burglar:

Third clip shows another:

The burglary happened early this morning at O’Neill’s headquarters at 6056 California SW.

    Whaaaaaaaaa? This is precisely the time I heard (and was woken up by) a loud female wailing just across the street from O’Neill’s that sounded like it might be coming from the apartments. I actually got out of bed and went down to the street to investigate, thinking for sure it was a drunken tirade of sorts. It quieted down so I went back to bed without calling it in. Grrr… Now kicking myself, as then cops (might) have come to the area.

    Perhaps it was a planned diversion of sorts? This is very unsettling.

    I’m sorry this happened but you need better cameras.

      Night vision cameras at 3 AM are always going to be a challenge. Even then, getting someone tracked down from a camera image and meaningful prosecution can be a trick too.

      Sorry this happened O’Neil crew. You’ve patched up my house a few times now, and I already have two things in mind for a repeat visit (snaking a below-ground downspout-sewer connection and replacing a 1″ PRV on a copper line).

    Did see that their back fence (alley) got tagged recently. Am I remembering correctly that sometimes there is a connection between recent tags and impending burglary? Like the tagging is a signal?

      That seems to be some bizarre story from Britain. Have never heard of a connection here.

    So sorry to hear about this. Oneil Plumbing is a great outfit. They’ve been here forever, family owned, good people, and do fantastic work. This burns me up.  Grrr.  I hope they catch these punks.

Sorry, comment time is over.
