Thanksgiving was just another work day for thieves, per the reader reports in the WSB inbox today:
STOLEN CAR: From Julie:
Our green 1998 Honda Civic 4 door sedan was stolen from in front of our house in the 3400 block of 41st Ave SW sometime overnight last night after the rain stopped. The pavement was dry where it had been parked. The car has a yellow “War is Terrorism” bumper sticker on the rear bumper and the car body paint is somewhat mottled. The officer who came to take our report said that the car thieves were busy last night. Our police incident number is 16-425153.
STOLEN BICYCLE: From Merrilee:
I wanted to report that my bike was stolen out of our garage last night (Delridge and Genesee). It’s a red and black Giant road bike.
If seen, we can be reached at 425-442-2485 or 206-661-3395.
CAR PROWL: “Our car was rifled through last night. 47th near Erskine. I think I left the doors unlocked. Sunglasses gone, some change and car-wash coins.”
And two pre-Thanksgiving reports:
SHOPLIFTER: Dave at Emerald Water Anglers (WSB sponsor) wants to make sure other merchants are on the lookout for this person caught on camera in a shoplifted jacket:
He says, “This dude is always around The Junction looking very suspicious in many of our stores. He lifted this jacket from us.”
STOLEN FROM WHILE MOVING: From Leah, who says this happened Sunday night:
I moved from the Admiral area to the Fauntleroy area recently. While our truck was parked by our building while we carried things in (door closed), an antique toy chest and a box of books were stolen. All was pretty sentimental and really not worth all that much to anyone but us 😞 But I digress; please watch your trucks closely and lock every time you take a trip up if you are moving in or out.
We hope crime doesn’t happen to you; if it does, report it to police – 911 if happening now or just happened – and please let us know later so your neighbors all around West Seattle will be alerted too.
