West Seattle Crime Watch: Slashed; stolen; found

This West Seattle Crime Watch roundup begins with a vandalism spree in Gatewood – two people have contacted us to report more than half a dozen cars’ tires were slashed sometime overnight near the California/Webster intersection.

In North Delridge, Angela found what seemed to be dumped loot:

She says it wasn’t even all from West Seattle (she’s already spoken with one victim who says her car was broken into yesterday at the Arboretum!):

This morning I found a pile of stuff on the side of the road that appeared to be dumped after a theft. Possibly multiple thefts, as my very minimal poking around turned up at least four different possible owners based on business cards (multiple of the same card), insurance card, registration, and other papers. I didn’t dig very deep; only looked at what was visible & on top when I found it.

About an hour after she reported it to police, who she says “indicated that they’d pick it up and place it into evidence,” it was gone.

Also found: this bicycle. Scott from Seattle Parks sent the photo:

He says, “This bike was found hidden in the shrubs at Hiawatha Playfield. We have it stored at SW Parks District Shop at Lincoln Park; hopefully the owner can get this expensive bike back. Our office phone is 684-7457.”

In case you are missing a bike and haven’t seen two notices posted within the past few days in the WSB Forums – here’s one for a yellow 10-speed, and another one for a blue girls’ bike.

Last but not least, James reports a double theft of 2-wheelers: his “2007 CRF450 motorcycle and Specialized Allez bicycle. These were stolen from my garage on (56th & Dakota) earlier this week.” His report came in via the WSB Facebook page – check out the “posts by others” section there for his photos.

    Our car was broken into this morning in the Grace Church parking lot (10323 28th Ave SW). Nothing valuable to anyone else, mainly clothes, glasses and a purse with not much in it. Even took my owners manual because it looked like it may have had something valuable in it.

    They probably just took off in a car, went through the stuff, then ditched it. So if anyone sees a pile of clothes around that area, please let me know at timpatmc@comcast.net. Thanks!

    Heads up! burglars on 49th near charlestown, neighbors home alarms going off with a good quick response I might add. Lots of retired folks in this ‘hood that are home. Keep your eyes open. Take photos of cars, people that are in alleys, on the sidewalk that do not look familiar, quietly. No need to be paranoid, just careful and attentive. We are watching, and can be of great help to our police.
