West Seattle Crime Watch update: ‘Bones’ is back

This was first noted in a comment at 3:45 this morning, and we just got confirmation from the theft victims – Someone returned “Bones,” the drummer in a popular Delridge driveway-side art installation, overnight, five days after he was stolen (as originally reported in the WSB Forums). The theft victims’ note was addressed to us but we believe it’s meant for all of WSB-land:

We just wanted to thank you one last time and let you know that to our immense delight Bones was returned last night. He’ll be going back into surgery (we’re beginning to worry he may have an addiction) and was missing his shoes, but otherwise we’re hopeful he’ll return to his drum kit soon. Thanks again for helping to restore our faith in the world!

If you, like us, hadn’t seen the band when they were all “together,” go here to see a photo shared by Brian Zenk.

    give him a little weight so he’s not so easy to run off with.

    I dint mean fatten him up. I just meant something like tethering him to a bowling ballor pier block.

    I saw him this morning on my way to work; it made my morning! When I saw him, he was lying on the ground on his side, obviously dumped off hastily.

    So glad to have you back, Bones! I love the sweet beats you play for me while I’m on my way to work.

Sorry, comment time is over.
