West Seattle Crime Watch: Another flag theft; items found; car almost stolen

Even the reader reports include a Super Bowl “theme” …

ANOTHER FLAG THEFT: We had one in the Saturday roundup, one in a comment, and then this came in today via text, with the photo above:

A warning for neighbors – someone just stole my husband’s 12th-man flag out of our front yard :-( We were home and heard the dog barking, but didn’t check because she also barks at cats a lot. To get the flag, this person had to climb up our porch and take it off the roof in a highly visible yard. Took it all, including the rusty flagpole we use for our Seafair pirate flag. Particularly sad after we spent most of yesterday afternoon trying to find one in a store. Anyway, just a reminder to others that nothing is sacred, even on Super Bowl Sunday. Watch your stuff.

FOUND ITEMS: Melanie didn’t mention where these turned up, but if you have had any of the following stolen recently, check with police:

Some items were left on the parking strip between my house and my neighbor’s house. A report has been made to the police, and the police will come by and pick up the items: … Shoes, bowling bag (no ball), trophy (broken), black shirt, baseball-type cap (with golf logo).

If any more Crime Watch reports come in today, we’ll add them to this roundup, so check back later!

ADDED SUNDAY NIGHT: Almost missed this one from Brenda, sent Saturday night:

At 8 this morning went out and my CRV wasn’t in its usual parking place. Instead,
it was a little ways down the street, parked at an angle with the engine running. The front windshield was cracked by my club which they tried to remove. Car completely gone through with stuff everywhere. I don’t keep any valuables in the car and it appears as if nothing was stolen. They also opened my mailbox but nothing in it for them to take. Police notified and report taken. This was on the 9900 block of 33rd Ave., SW.

    now who the hell wakes up on Superbowl Sunday, and their first thought is…”I think I’ll go steal me a Seahawks flag !”

    We had our flag stolen from our front porch as well. The Super Bowl loss was bad enough without having to deal with low life thieves. Time to mount some cameras!

Sorry, comment time is over.
