WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen blue Ford pickup truck; car prowls

Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports this morning:


Our truck, a blue 2002 Ford F-250 crew cab, was stolen from outside our house last night. We live on 38th near Oregon st.

(10:50 am update: Plates B96816K.)

CAR PROWLS: Karen says this happened on 48th SW between Hanford and Hinds:

Just wanted to let you know that our block had a car prowler last night. My wife’s car was ransacked, but nothing taken and I could see one other vehicle while walking our dog that had it happen, as well. I forgot to lock the door after running out to move the car. We don’t keep anything of value, but they did go through everything. They opened everything.

    Do you have a photo of your pickup does it have loud mufflers on it?  I saw some questionable guys parking a blue pickup in the parking garage under Mod Pizza.  They seemed out of place.

      No It’s not loud and wouldn’t fit in a garage. But thank you for being on the look out

        Amanda yes it would fit in that parking garage. I owned one too. Got stolen five years ago.

    Our brown 2002 F-250 crew cab diesel (which is quite loud) was also stolen this morning around 5:55am.  It had been parked in front of our house in Admiral and I happened to be leaving our alley at the same time.  A red F-250 crew cab about the same age briefly blocked the exit to our alley as I was leaving and I watched my truck drive past.  The red truck then followed.  I couldn’t get the plate number off the red truck because it was obscured with a dark tinted cover.  I followed for a while (yes, I know, my wife already told me I was stupid to follow them) as I talked to 911 but lost them going south on West Marginal.
