West Seattle Crime Watch: Car break-in; wheels stolen; more

Three West Seattle Crime Watch notes:

CAR BREAK-IN: The victim of a car prowl in the Admiral Safeway lot around 4 pm yesterday called from her home phone to report this – she couldn’t e-mail because she would usually do that on her phone, and it was among the items stolen, along with a burgundy-colored Coach purse, “the large satchel type,” with a large gold emblem. It was “partly covered” on the passenger seat, and the thief broke out the passenger-side window to get it.

WHEELS/TIRES TAKEN: Tahira says her sister was visiting overnight Thursday/Friday when they woke up to find her car on blocks, wheels and tires taken:

It happened in Gatewood, next to Trinity Church at 35th/Austin.

BURGLARY FOLLOWUP: If you didn’t see this in comments yesterday – the surveillance image of the burglar who broke into Meeples Games (WSB sponsor) early Thursday has led to an ID, according to Laura Schneider from Meeples. No word of an arrest or stolen-property recovery yet, but knowing who it is was the first step, and she thanks everyone for both tips and for the expression of support.

P.S. Next crime-prevention-focused community meeting is the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council on April 19th, 7 pm, at the Southwest Precinct (2300 SW Webster).

    I’m very glad to read that there is progress in the Meeple’s Games burglary. Meeple’s is in the best tradition of “friendly local game shops” and is dear to my heart. I love going in there on Wednesday evenings and seeing a big, diverse crowd enjoying board games and RPGs.

    My car was broken into this morning in the 4000 block of Chilberg Ave. SW, just one block off of Beach Drive. Nothing of value was in the car, except a garage door opener to a house in another city, which they took.

Sorry, comment time is over.
