WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 1 arrested after Arbor Heights car prowl leads to search

For everyone who asked about the Arbor Heights police search early this morning – officers were gone by the time we got there in search of information, but we’ve just obtained details from the report, via SPD media relations. Around 6 am, a call about a car prowl in progress brought officers to the 3500 block of SW 112th. “Two car prowlers were said to have been chased off by one of the two victims,” Det. Mark Jamieson tells us. A K-9 team tracked the suspects to a nearby driveway, hiding “inbetween cars.” One got away; the other, a 28-year-old man, was arrested for investigation of car prowling and trespass.

    Thank you for looking into this!  A little disconcerting seeing two policemen and K9 dog walking past my house this morning. Thanks SPD for your diligence and hardwork.

    Thanks for getting to the bottom of this. I’m so sick of these stories. I hope we can get the name of the guy arrested soon. Plus how many hundreds of times he’s been arrested for the same thing.

    One got away with a dog staring at him?

      Don’t know how close they got.

      Well. The K-9 can only hold on to one perp at a time.  By the time the police conviced Fido to let go, the other guy probably had a pretty good head start.  Kinda like how you should have track shoes instead of hiking boots when traveling with a buddy in grizzly country ;)

    Sunday night is the night that I had my truck broken into two times in the last 8 months. While leaving for work this morning I saw a few suspicious things I probably should have reported.

    There are also many honest people in WS also.  My wife dropped her wallet the other day and a fellow WS resident brought it back to our house

    • WSB January 23, 2017 (11:25 pm)

      No info on that, sorry. We were lucky even to get this much info, since as mentioned police had packed up and moved on by the time we got a text and headed over to look.

    Hi – do you know how to get in touch with the officer? I also had my car hit.

    thanks

      Where was your car when it was hit?

  • Alki Resident January 23, 2017 (10:34 pm)

    There was a tweet tonite on the blog regarding a suspicious vehicle on 10000 block of California Ave. Wonder if the one that got away is at it again.

    The prowlers tossed their drugs in my neighbors driveway;

    one pill, black tar rosin and a short soda straw in a cig. pack. 
These drugs are now at the SPD Precinct Station, the office told me that it was Black Tar Heroin. Lock your cars up and the doors to you house. I installed security lights and Ring Stickup cameras.

    They robbed my wifes van in our driveway of our well lit house. That night 1/22/17. They wrecked the vans interior stole many baby items then our neighbor just found our pack and play in the bushes. Thanks!

    So glad the cops caught them.

    Ok, most of all the car break in and any crying for that matter committed and West Seattle is all of the homes people that live in White Center! I know this for a fact, because I used to be a drug addict and unfortunately hung out with most of those people, not when they did the crime, just in WC. They also hang out now a lot in Westwood Village. More specifically, at McDonald’s, the park, the bus stop across the street from McDonald’s, behind Target that will pass that link Westwood Village to the back residential neighborhood. Unum, thanks to officer Handcock, a lot of them are scared of him because he had made such a strong presence and they all are scattered all over the place to like Burien, and South Park. They wait for everyone to go to, and they do the dirt. Phil of West Seattle way back from the Main Street and and dark areas with a lot of trees. Believe it or not but you may find some of your things on OfferUp, Craigslist, the pawn shop. And people at the locker room Bar & Y Center are known to buy some of these stolen products from these people and also stolen meat from Safeway down there on Roxbury. Also, if someone find a credit card in your mailbox when they go AKA mailboxing they will stalk your house until they get your penned hoping that you haven’t noticed. And this is a every night thing they do not stop and won’t stop until they are caught.

Sorry, comment time is over.
