West Seattle Crime Watch: North Admiral car prowl; south WS discussion at WWRHAH

Two notes in West Seattle Crime Watch:

CAR BREAK-IN: From Yvonne:

I just wanted to report a car prowl incident that happened today in the North Admiral district off of SW Waite Street.

Today when I entered my car parked in front of our house on a residential street, I noticed that the contents of my glove box was emptied out onto the floor and my old iPhone was stolen out of my center console.

They also stole a Quickbooks 101 book from my back seat. Nothing of real value was taken and no damage was done to my car but I wanted to alert the WS community in case anyone else experienced a car break in/theft/prowl last night or this morning.

She filed a police report – which SPD urges, even if “nothing of real value” (or nothing at all) was stolen. You can even file online by going here.

CRIME CONCERNS IN SOUTH WEST SEATTLE? Be at the Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Council meeting tomorrow night. From co-chair Amanda Kay Helmick:

Please join us as we welcome Seattle Police, Department of Planning and Development and the City Attorney’s Office to discuss crime in the Westwood/Roxhill/Delridge Triangle area. We have been working with SPD for over three years on theft, drug use/dealing, prostitution, squatting, assault, and gun violence. Our area needs an update on what is being done to address our challenges. No formal agenda – all are welcome.

WWRHAH’s meeting runs 6:15-7:45 pm Tuesday at Southwest Branch Library (35th/Henderson).

    i live off waite, my gas cap was open this morning and figured i must have left it open, which i never do. my tank was empty anyway so unless they dumped sugar in there or something i think they just tried to steal some gas and left empty handed. didn’t see any other strangeness. my car was prowled a few months back, they stole a water bottle and a phone charger, left my nice sunglasses so idk if they’re kids or what.

    I live off of 49th and Waite and oddly enough my gas gap was open this morning too. I didn’t notice til about 9 am this morning and I was very concerned as I hadn’t gotten gas in over a week and surely had not opened it since then.
