West Seattle Crime Watch: 4 reader reports

Four reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch this afternoon:

MAIL/PACKAGE THEFT: Ben reports: “Just a heads up, our mail and packages were stolen from our house between Trenton and Henderson on 34th SW (Monday night). Sucks.”

CAR BREAK-IN, AND … Also Monday night. Mary reports: “I wanted to let people know that our truck got broken into … It was in the alley between 30th and 29th near Trenton. Also, on Friday night someone left a white North Face jacket behind the truck that was broken into.”

ANOTHER CAR BREAK-IN: Sara says this too happened Monday night: “I live on the 4400 block of 49th Ave SW and my car was broken into while parked in the alleyway between Genesee and Oregon SW. They took 3 credit cards and some cash and then used the credit cards at Walgreens and Jack-In-The-Box but were declined at Fred Meyer.”

AND YET ANOTHER CAR BREAK-IN: Heather reports, “Just thought I’d share our car was prowled last weekend in front of our house in the 8800 block of 37th Avenue SW (between Trenton and Henderson). Unfortunately they made off with quite a lot because we had stuff in the trunk and a bunch of kids’ CDs in the car. It had been locked and there was no sign of forced entry (it’s an older Honda Civic…probably not too tough to open). Just thought I’d let people know to keep their eyes open.”

PREVENTING CAR PROWLS: Here’s the official SPD advice.

    Ben, any chance one of your packages was crate and barrel? Saw someone post that they found package in a ditch near there.

    I live in the Henderson Trenton area, between 35th and 29th and go to work about 3:30 am. I’ve seen people slowly riding bicycles around the neighborhood, wearing backpacks. I essentially chase them out by continually driving around the area letting them know I’m aware of them until they leave.

    Also, on 29th between Barton and Henderson I’ve noticed cars/vans/RVs parking on the east side of the street with people just sitting in them. Not to mention the people just randomly walking around the area.
