West Seattle Crime Watch: Car stolen twice in less than 2 weeks

Nine days ago, Beth‘s VW Passat was stolen from her driveway near Lincoln Park. The next day, a reader reported it turned up in front of their home in Beverly Park. Now – Beth says it’s been stolen again:

Turns out they ransacked and found an extra key in my husband’s car. I am
requesting help again since some lovely lady found it last time in the 115th
area. I was having it rekeyed on Saturday!!!

2004 royal blue VW Passat with Sun Valley and state of WA stickers on back,
license #AKD2678 (in a Hans Automotive frame). I am so frustrated!

If you see it, call 911.

P.S. The West Seattle Crime Prevention Council‘s first meeting of 2015, with local SPD leadership on hand, is at 7 pm next Tuesday (January 20th). If you have neighborhood crime/safety concerns, be there.

    I’ll be out in that area this weekend and will keep an eye out!

    Here’s an idea if you have a car that is likely to be stolen. Install a fuel kill switch that will disable your fuel pump. A hidden/non obvious location that only you would know works best.
    A lot of aftermarket car alarm systems have this feature.
    If that is too extreme or expensive.. you can also just pull the fuel pump relay in the fuse box. If they can’t start the engine, they can’t drive off with it.

    Thanks everyone – I have some security plans ready upon return.

Sorry, comment time is over.
