West Seattle Crime Watch reader report: Same burglar?

This just came in as a comment following the “bra-scattering burglar” West Seattle Crime Watch report five days ago; since most people won’t check in on comments from older items, we’re reposting it here:

He hit us too, we came home Friday night and found our house had been broken into as well (13th and Trenton) and I would guess it’s the same guy based on how he operated. The underwear drawers were all ransacked (but no underwear turned up in the driveway) and smaller electronics and such were taken. The weirdest thing was that he looked through our fridge and ate some leftover pizza while he was here (we’ve started referring to him as the Pizza Bandit). He was clearly in no hurry. He also had a coke and the police took the can with them to look for fingerprints. We can only hope he gets caught soon as obviously he is quite brazen. We’ll be installing security cameras this week in the event he decides to come back in the future. All in all a bad weekend!


We’ll be checking on this one with the Southwest Precinct tomorrow. Speaking of which, we posted a note on the Crime Watch page, but in case you were wondering (as were about half a dozen people who e-mailed us), we don’t yet have official information on what was at the heart of last night’s helicopter-accompanied search in Pigeon Point and environs – will let you know when we do.

    A friend’s house “near” 41st & Holden was broken into last Thursday, 4/10. Back door kicked in between 9 AM and 5 PM. No alley on this block.
    They got some jewelry, a DVD player and $100 in cash. They rummaged through dresser drawers (contents on floor,) the closet shelf, kitchen cupboards and bathroom cabinets and drawers.

    Not only fingerprints, hopefully the Police Lab will be able to pull up some DNA from saliva residue on the can.
