Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports to share this afternoon:
STOLEN CAR: Rene‘s car, with disabled-person license plates, was stolen from a carport in the 3700 block of Beach Drive. It’s a silver 2002 Toyota 4Runner, plates DP 35458. Call 911 if you see it.
PROWLER IN WESTWOOD: From Stuart near 32nd SW and SW Barton, this video and a still from it:
Last night at 10:25 pm, a prowler rode his bike up to the front of our house and spent about a minute along the side of the house presumably looking into our bedroom windows. He rode up, checked down the side of the house, and then rode away. Our windows were closed and locked, so we hope this ended there. Incident was reported to police. Description of person involved – Hair: Hat with print on front, Top: Hoodie sweatshirt, Bottom: Sweat pants, Shoes: Appeared to be dark-colored shoes. Age: Looked 20-40. Build: Medium build. Race: Hard to determine. Sex: Male, Other details: The video shows a necklace with what appears to be a pendant. BMX-style bike with the seat post set high.
P.S. One more mention – the next briefing on area crime trends is at tonight’s West Seattle Block Watch Captains Network meeting, open to all, 6:30 pm at the Southwest Precinct (2300 SW Webster).
