West Seattle Crime Watch: Burglaries

In West Seattle Crime Watch tonight – we’re looking at burglaries.

GATEWOOD BREAK-IN: A burglary in the 8200 block of California SW on Thursday afternoon is reported to have been associated with this pickup truck:

The witness who reported it says “two young girls” were in the truck and appeared to have cased other houses in the neighborhood before the break-in just after 2:30 pm. If you have any information, the incident number is 16-102310.

WHERE BURGLARS ARE STRIKING: We checked the SPD police-report map to see where else in West Seattle burglaries have been reported this week – this is a screengrab of the map, sorted for burglaries only (it shows many other categories of crime if you look at it unsorted):

North to south, the icons shown correspond with these reported burglaries:
*Saturday afternoon, 2700 block Belvidere
*Monday night, 4400 block 35th SW
*Last Friday morning, 4500 block California SW

ABOUT THAT HELICOPTER EARLY THURSDAY: Didn’t get a chance to mention it in the middle of the power-outage coverage, but the helicopter heard briefly over West Seattle early Thursday was Guardian One, tweeting afterward that they were checking for a Fauntleroy prowler but didn’t find anything.

    I saw that car 3 weeks ago, it was a man and a woman looking around in 9th and Cloverdale looking in cars and looking inside houses. I called  the police but no one showed I watch as they went through all of 9th checking houses out, after 15 minutes they went to another street and I lost sight. The truck has no plates in the front or back, the people I saw them in where in late 30´s, a man and a woman, they looked like junkies to me.

    WSB, your diligence is amazing. I figured I’d never know about that helicopter.

    Are we sure the pick-up is not stolen as well?

Sorry, comment time is over.
