West Seattle Crime Watch: Dog park car prowl; burglary attempt

Two reader reports – first, from Amy:

My car was broken into yesterday @ 400-445 pm while my boyfriend and I were with our dogs at the Westcrest dog park. We noticed a suspicious vehicle nearby. Watched them park. But leave briefly after. They were driving a Tahoe dark charcoal gray with 22′ inch rims or bigger with blacked-out windows. Passengers were white males. They broke my back-side passenger window and stole my purse. They got away with some jewelry + prescriptions + makeup + Jean purse.

Second, someone tried to break into Annalisa‘s house on Friday:

We had an attempted break in at our house on 20th and Trenton. They did not get into the house, but they did crack our window and lean the window screen nicely back up against the house … It occurred between 3:45 and 7:15. They tried to break into our baby’s room, which is all the more frightening.

Meantime, your next chance to bring neighborhood crime/safety concerns/questions to Seattle Police is this Tuesday, when the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meets for the first time in a few months – 7 pm, Southwest Precinct (Delridge/Webster). No guest on the agenda, so the entire meeting is a chance to hear from and talk with police.

    Amy, sorry to hear that. Where were you parked at Westcrest?

    Never leave your purse in the car.
