Two more reports to share tonight – but first, another plug for tomorrow night’s West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting. If you have any concerns you’d like to bring directly to Southwest Precinct police leadership, this is exactly the place to be; also, tomorrow’s guest speaker is King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg, which means you’ll get to hear – and ask – about what happens to crime suspects *after* they’re arrested, including the recently launched Repeat Burglar Initiative. 7 pm, public meeting room at the precinct (Delridge/Webster, parking lot and building entrance are off Webster). Now, speaking of burglary, the latest reports:
From Gregory in Arbor Heights, a burglary last Wednesday:
It was on the 9800 block of 44th Ave SW [map] and took place at approximately 11:30 AM to 12:00 PM. Two white males driving a older white Honda, possibly Civic, with loud rattling muffler backed into the driveway of one of our neighbors. They went to the back of the house and kicked in the back door, luckily no one was home but the house alarm scared the perpetrators away. One neighbor heard the alarm and yelled at them as they drove away. Police were called and a report given. There was report of a similar incident earlier that same morning where another house alarm apparently scared the invaders away but not sure if the two were related.
We experienced another home invasion earlier this summer when a neighbor inadvertently left a window open during the extremely warm weather. Two young individuals invaded and stole several items, but were scared away by the home owner who discovered them as they were leaving the window through which the entered. The home owner pursued but couldn’t get the license plate, but he description of the vehicle was similar.
From “M” in North Admiral, a car break-in:
Sometime between 11pm Sunday night and 6:30am Monday, September 2, our 1992 Mazda Protege was broken into in the area of SW Massachusetts Street & 46 Ave SW [map]. Wasn’t really much in the car, but the thief or thieves took a green Rubbermaid type container that contained jumper cables, extra oil, a first aid kit, and a number of bungee straps. They also took two cds, a blanket and emptied the glove box. The lock was popped on the driver’s side door and the faceplate of the stereo was pried off with a screwdriver which broke it. Also, there was cigarette ashes on the seat. Nothing of real value was taken, but now we have to get another copy of the registration, have the lock and stereo repaired. My wife and I feel violated more than anything else.
See you at tomorrow’s Crime Prevention Council meeting.
