Our 1999 Honda Passport was stolen between 10 pm on Monday, August 16th and 9 am on Tuesday, August 17th near the Admiral junction. It is black with a sunroof, spare tire mounted on the back with a black “HONDA” cover and a hitch, WA license 369 ZUO. We reported it to the police on Tuesday morning and were hopeful that it would have been found by now.
If you see it, please notify the police or call 206-769-9931.August 21, 2010 at 7:12 pm #702027
Hi Scooter, did you see This Thread further down on here on the WSB Forums page, regarding a stolen car?
It was found, (thanks to wsgolfer!), on Murray Av, north of Lincoln Park, and just up from Lowman Beach Park.
My guess is it was parked behind the little stretch of greenbelt, across from the large apartment complex(es), just off Lincoln Park Way. wsgolfer could confirm that, and maybe remember if your SUV is/was there as well. They only mention one other car, a Mustang.

Hey Mike… thanks for the tip. We know exactly where that is and we’re planning on driving by there shortly.August 23, 2010 at 1:45 pm #702029
Well, still no sign of our Passport… We’re still hoping for a success story similar to the folks from Alaska who found their Outback thanks to West Seattle Blogger wsgolfer!August 27, 2010 at 2:10 pm #702030
It appears they found the Passport early this morning. We got a call from the Redmond police at 4:30 am. It made the morning news on Komo — the person driving it took off by foot so there’s a manhunt by the Microsoft campus. Apparently the thieves are from the south end and the license plates had been changed. We won’t be able to identify the vehicle until Monday at 9 pm.August 27, 2010 at 6:42 pm #702031
I just saw that story on KOMO’s 11:00 a.m. News.
Hope it’s still in decent condition.
Good luck, and please be sure to update us on what you find out after you ID it.

Scooter, glad to hear it has been recovered. Like Mike said, I hope it isn’t badly damaged!August 31, 2010 at 3:49 pm #702033
We retrieved the Passport last night from the Redmond Police. We were anticipating the process to be quick — instead it took a few hours due to all of the property and items that were in the vehicle that weren’t ours. Items included key chains with several shaved keys, a new stereo was installed (likely stolen property), police scanner with a frequency reference sheet, radar detector, GPS, backpacks with various tools, pawn shop receipts, drugs etc, etc. The license plates that they installed had been registered to another Passport, so a lot of thought obviously went into this whole thing. Apparently the driver that took off on foot after he was pulled over was able to steal another vehicle and crashed it before he took off on foot again — he has not been caught yet. Good news is the vehicle is in great shape. After we have it professionally detailed (to remove the smoke smell and tamper tape on the outside), it will be worth driving again.
Thanks to all of the West Seattle Bloggers out there that were on the lookout for us!August 31, 2010 at 5:52 pm #702034
Great news Scooter. Frightening how much work they put into it, and what they had inside. Holy cow, I guess these thieves are not just kids doing a smash and grab! Here’s hoping they left a good amount of fingerprints for evidence and that the pawn shop receipts help identify them.August 31, 2010 at 7:05 pm #702035
Glad to hear it’s in decent shape overall, Scooter.
The only thing is, I hate to see you have to pay out for the detailing. Hopefully your insurance co will cover it, especially since they are not having to pay out for what could have been much more extensive damage, or replacement of the entire vehicle.
