West Seattle metal theft: WSB’er makes a map for you

View Larger Map

Based on this report and the comments that followed, Steve made the map you see above and asked us to share it – it’s open to collaboration (if it happened to you, go here and add your location). Unfortunately, he has extra impetus to see these guys get caught, as he wrote:

I decided to map out the locations of casings and thefts as suggested by the poster “Jana.” In the middle of typing a reply to the post, inviting Jana and other WSB’ers to view the Google map I created, I received a call from home to let me know that we had been hit (Thursday night).

If you aren’t familiar with how to use Google Maps, here’s the user guide. Meantime, we’re sorry to hear about Steve getting ripped off, but grateful for his generosity in making and sharing the map!

    Oh thanks so much for making this map Steve, I’m so sorry to hear that you ended up getting hit yourself!

    Thank you also WSB for posting his map and allowing the neighborhood to come together through your blog to stop these guys. Also, thanks for the link on how to use Google maps, that’s pretty handy and definitely something I need to figure out.

    Well I got hit Friday night. They cut the catalytic converter off my truck. It was parked on 41st between Dakota and Andover. I hope they catch this guy. I would also encourage all of us to contact our legislator to implement regulations on metal recyclers, that’s the only way were going to get control of this nuisance.

Sorry, comment time is over.
