West Seattle Crime Watch: Did you see a package thief?

Out of the WSB inbox, from Chris:

We had a delivered package containing some hard-to-replace valuables taken from our front porch on the corner of 27th and Holden at some point between 2 and 9 pm yesterday. Wrapping material (which I’m assuming is) from the package were strewn down the hill from our house.

He’s wondering if anyone saw someone in the area “carrying a big, 15-20 pound box during that time.”

    Oh no, what a bummer!
    Didn’t see the package thief, but we live very close by and our cars were ransacked and stripped of all items of value sometime between last night and around noon today.

    Grrrrrrrrrr…. I hate theives!! I had a package stolen from my door step a few years ago. Joke was on the thief though. All it was, was a mouse pad with Shiba Inu puppies on it. Sorry you had something much more important stolen. That’s not cool. Some people make me sick.

    I think for an extra fee you can have packages delivered to some of the shipping places. or ask your employer if you can receive at work.

    @curious, one of our cars (that hubby accidentally left unlocked) was ransacked last night as well (28th & Myrtle). Nothing of value was in the car, so nothing was taken, but things were strewn about and the door was open when we got up this morning.

    Checkout dropcam.com. We set one up and have it pointed at our front steps area. A worth while investment and pretty pain free.

    Thanks for posting this, WSB.

    Wine guy, we were actually looking into dropcam.com before this happened. Definitely going to spend some time deciding on a solution today!

Sorry, comment time is over.
