West Seattle Crime Watch: Mail theft; hit-run; stolen-bike update

Three West Seattle Crime Watch notes tonight:

MAIL THEFT: Surveillance video caught someone stealing mail on Beach Drive near Lowman Beach around noon Friday:

The victim is offering a thousand-dollar reward if a tip leads to identification. You can refer to police incident #16000087115.

HIT-RUN: Emily reports her vehicle was hit “on Fauntleroy coming off the ferry (Friday). If you see a maroon Mercedes SUV missing its front emblem, with license plate AYJ4***, please call 911 and report to SPD, attn: Officer Johns!”

STOLEN-BIKE UPDATE: We reported Friday on Kim‘s stolen bike. Now, an update: “The boneheads couldn’t ride it and crashed. Found by neighbors where it was ditched. Back home in locked space.”

P.S. Reminder that the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meets Tuesday (March 15th), 7 pm at Southwest Precinct (2300 SW Webster) – bring your crime/safety concerns directly to local police, as part of the meeting.

    Is that a locking mailbox? And is that a screwdriver in her hand?

    It certainly looks that way, doesn’t it? That camera is right out in the open, too, so this criminal is brazen, desperate and foolish. I hope somebody can put a name to the face and get her off the streets ASAP.

    Hit-Run:  4 out of 7 plate numbers and a description of the vehicle, surely we should be able to catch this person.  Sadly, they prob didn’t even know they hit someone, you can drive like a drunk as long as you aren’t, it is okay.

    It doesn’t help that our mailman won’t put the mail all the way into our large locking mailbox! We use a mailbox services for packages, but not regular mail (yet).  I hope they catch this woman!

    I am against torture but it seems public caning for mail theft and graffiti would deter this rampant crime. People who are doing this are just laughing at us and continuing to commit this sort of crime because they can. Police cannot catch them or chose not to because there are bigger issues. Laws are to lenient or not enough room in prisons/jails.

Sorry, comment time is over.
