West Seattle Crime Watch: Mail theft; abandoned bicycle

Two quick West Seattle Crime Watch notes:

MAIL THEFT: Thanks to Leanne for reporting mail theft along 40th SW in Arbor Heights. “Neighbors found a couple envelopes and a birthday card in the ditch.”

RECOGNIZE THIS BICYCLE? Abandoned bicycles often turn out to have been stolen, so if you know someone missing a bike:

Katy sent the photo after spotting the bicycle in shrubbery along SW Thistle west of California SW in Gatewood, where it’s been for at least a day. (The only bicycle theft on the Seattle Police crime-reports map for the past week happened Saturday night in the 9200 block of 17th SW, but others could be in the online-reports queue and not showing up on the map yet.)

    Just FYI – the mailboxes on 35th Ave SW (9400 block) were tampered with, and ours was outright stolen. Happened sometime at the end of June (I filed a police report on the 29th, but I didn’t think to tell WSB – my bad!).

Sorry, comment time is over.
