West Seattle Crime Watch: Can you help solve this mystery?

Jeff lives in north Gatewood and has found car-prowl loot discarded near his house before. He’s been able to reunite items with their owners before … but this time he’s not having luck and asking if you know whose things these are:

I found some things hidden behind a bush off of the alley behind my house that I believe are unwanted items from a car prowl. The items include some clothing, a drawing book, and a CD case that must have 20 or 30 CDs in it.

The book and the clothing probably aren’t worth much but the CDs would have some value. Judging from the drawing book I am guessing that it is all from a young person. There is a name in the drawing book … I could not find a person by that name in West Seattle but then a young person might not show up. There are also some dates from March and then the 4th of July so the items are probably from a recent event. I would like to return the items to the owner if they want them.

We advised him to notify police, but in the meantime, if the owner comes forward, he’d still be able to return the items.

    I’m pretty sure you have already tried to look them up on Facebook?

    We had our car prowled Wednesday night in Genessee Hill and we had a box of CD’s stolen and some books. I am glad you are hoping trying reunite the owner of this CD book. Hopefully ours will be found too!

      Diane – sorry to hear it. If you send us info we’d be happy to publish it as a Crime Watch story too and have people on the lookout – police do not make this kind of information available, so if we don’t hear about it from the victim(s), we don’t hear about it at all. Even if you’ve told, for example, a neighborhood list, the information could be useful (and/or the items could turn up) beyond neighborhood borders – editor@westseattleblog.com – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
