West Seattle Crime Watch: Art theft; car break-in

If you see that work by John Osgood, “Flowers for You,” anywhere but the exhibition space in Mural Apartments (WSB sponsor), report it to police – because it’s stolen, according to Twilight Artist Collective, which just sent word of the theft. They’ve also written about it on their website. It’s been missing for eight days now, so they decided to get the word out more widely.

Meantime, one other Crime Watch note this afternoon – from Kelly:

Just wanted to let everyone know we had a car break-in (Tuesday) night in Arbor Heights, 42nd and 102nd [map]. Never had a problem in the past 5 years until now. They rooted around in the car for valuables but we don’t own any valuables! Ha! We think it occurred after 11:30 pm.

    As I read this, I recalled artwork being stolen previously & ran a search that brought up a posting in late 2008. Wonder if this theft could be the same person/people?

    I am one block north of you (Kelly)… Argh. no block watch for this area?

    Uh, aside from the obvious — that crime is bad — John Osgood seems like a pretty good artist. Just sayin.’

Sorry, comment time is over.
