West Seattle Crime Watch: Burglary, car-theft victims looking for witnesses

Three reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch today – two sent in hopes somebody saw something in relation to the two crimes:

HOME BURGLARIZED – ANY WITNESSES? A resident in the 4000 block of 35th SW [map] reports a burglary on Tuesday and hopes somebody saw something:

I want to report the brazen theft of personal property in broad daylight yesterday to see if anyone was a witness to the crime. The (burglar/s) entered through a side window and stole jewelry, money, passports, alcohol, etc. sometime between ~8 am and 4 pm on July 19th. The (burglar/s) then walked out the front door, leaving it wide open to boot.


WSB Friends: My silver 2004 Volvo XC70 was stolen from my home on Dawson Street in the Alaska Junction early Friday morning, badly damaged, and abandoned in the 3000 block of 48th Ave. SW. I was working out of town, so the vehicle was ticketed and towed about 9:40 Saturday morning from where it was found. I didn’t realize this until I returned home about midnight on Sunday. I recovered the car (Monday) and it might be a total loss. A neighbor saw a black van with its lights blinking idling in front of my house about 2:15 a.m. on Saturday. If anyone heard or saw anything that might relate to this, will you please comment so we may be in contact? I thank you in advance for your help.

And a followup:

STOLEN CAR FOUND: Last Friday, we published Nita’s car-theft report; her son’s 1999 Civic was taken from outside their home near 35th/Cloverdale. It’s since been found, she tells us, “abandoned at a condo in Burien. Thanks to the King County and Seattle Police, great teamwork. They ripped out the stereo system, stole my daughter’s north face jacket, west they took my 8-year-old son’s football gear.” But they did get a sentimental item back – the tag from their dog, who died recently.

    We live a couple of blocks from this location.  My son was home yesterday and he said someone knocked on the door around 1:30 pm.  Wondering if it might be the same peeps.  Maybe someone who has an camera can check around that time frame.  My son didn’t open the door, per my instructions, but he made sure who ever was out there knew someone was home.  They left after a couple of minutes.  He looked out the window and didn’t see anyone.   Either way, sorry that it happen.  Stealing is bad karma.

    The sociopaths among us are not bothered by guilt, shame, or conscience, and they certainly don’t lose any sleep over karma.

Sorry, comment time is over.
