West Seattle Crime Watch: Park theft; car prowl

Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports from the WSB inbox.

First, Nicole e-mailed to report that she and her sister are looking for a blue Element backpack, and contents, stolen at Lincoln Park during a birthday celebration last Saturday night. On Sunday morning, she says, joggers found it “in the woods” at the park, found her sister’s ID and credit card and contacted the family, promising to mail the cards but leaving the backpack on a bench to be picked up – and before Nicole’s sister got there, “it had been stolen yet again. It had a new dress inside, and makeup that both of us had spent hundreds of dollars on over the years and some sentimental items we’d really like to get back.” If you find anything that you think might have been part of the backpack contents she’s seeking, contact police – she’s filed a report – or e-mail her at nicole12541254@gmail.com.

And Lance reports a Sunday car prowl at 16th and Cloverdale: “Nothing seems to be missing… Everything tossed about.”

    I saw an overstuffed big blue duffel bag sitting on the side of Graham this morning between California & 45th…
    Not the same, I know but if anyone lost one…

    Good intentions, I am sure, but the joggers decided to leave the bag on the bench to be picked up? Seems like an odd plan. Hopefully the credit card and id were mailed back.

Sorry, comment time is over.
