West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen car; stolen GPS; two ‘suspicious’ sightings

Four reader reports to share in West Seattle Crime Watch, starting with a stolen car to watch for:

Sheila reports:

Our white Honda Accord was stolen from right in front of our house at the corner of 18th SW & SW Holden, between 11 pm & 7 am this morning.

Greg reports a car break-in near Lincoln Park:

Car prowl – 7300 block 44th Ave SW. Stole 5” TomTom GPS.

David reports a potential car prowler appeared to be scoping out his neighborhood early Thursday:

I live in the 8800 block of 11th Ave SW (between Henderson and Trenton) in Highland Park. An elderly neighbor let me know that around 4 AM July 25, a man was going from vehicle to vehicle on our street, checking in the windows with a flashlight. Just thought I’d send a note to you to help get the word out and remind everyone to make sure they don’t keep anything valuable in their vehicles.

Also yesterday, a North Admiral report of suspected casing:

I … was driving North on 48th Ave SW between Hanford and Stevens. I noticed a Brown 4 door sedan with patches of paint missing driving very slowly and looking at the houses. I was driving directly behind the vehicle. The car slowed down after crossing Stevens and pulled over to the right as they noticed open windows at a house that had recently sold. I saw them point to the windows and they stopped their car. I do have a license plate, but cannot tell you the make of the car. They were casing houses. They only slowed at homes that had open windows.

    Was the stolen Honda a low-rider? Around 10:30 last night as I was driving home on W. Marginal, I saw a White Honda driving erratically. It was doing 360’s all over the road. I was certain it was going to crash or cause an accident. I tried taking a picture of the car, but it didn’t turn out great.

    Please let me know the description of the casers driving down 48th. I want to be ready to dispatch them to hel! I’ve been burglarized once already and don’t want to take the next one unprepared. The police don’t care and do nothing.

    Are you sure the casers were in a brown car? One of my roomates spotted a red honda civic with “black spots” on it checking out my house on 5000 block of 35th. jul 29th.

Sorry, comment time is over.
