West Seattle Crime Watch: Burglar(s) take heirloom (and more); motorcycle stolen

Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports. First, a burglary report from last night, at a home near 51st SW and Admiral Way. The report was forwarded on behalf of the burglary victim’s family:

Mom’s laptop and my DSLR camera and lenses are gone, they took some alcohol, looked for pills, smashed the sliding glass door. Found out they took an antique jewelry/music box from mom’s childhood that had sentimental value.

Also, Eric reports his motorcycle has been stolen:

Just wanted to advise WS residents that a black Harley Davidson motorcycle was stolen (license plate 8C4988, with whitewalls and black handlebars) from Link Apartments on 38th and Alaska. Sometime between Sept 6th and Sept 16th from the “secure” garage. If anyone sees it around, please call police.

Next crime-prevention-related meeting in West Seattle is the WS Block Watch Captains’ Network, Tuesday (September 23rd), 6:30 pm at the Southwest Precinct, including updates from SPD. You don’t have to be a BW captain to attend – all welcome.

    Isn’t this the second motorcycle to be stolen from the Link secured garage in the last few months?

    so, what exactly does “secured” mean?

    “secured” just means that only people with garage openers should have access to the garage. I used to live at the Link a few years ago and can definitely say that that’s not the case at all. Both of these stories really suck… :(

    My sympathy to you Borg. Being robbed sucks. I was a victim last month where they took some sentimental things– valueless to anyone but me. I’m so sorry it happened to you.

Sorry, comment time is over.
