West Seattle Crime Watch starts tonight with a reader report:
HIT-RUN: Wendy reports, “Our car was hit last night sometime between 10 pm and 7 am, the car was parked across from Ercolini Park. The driver took out our side mirror. Sharing this in case someone saw something. A police report was filed.” It happened on 48th SW, west of the park.
CAR THEFTS: Another of our periodic category checks from the SPD crime-report map – vehicle thefts reported in the past ~week:
The live map is not embeddable, but if you go there and sort for vehicle theft, you’ll find the map above, with these reports from north to south:

Wednesday night, 3200 block Avalon Way
Friday night, 3600 block SW Brandon
Wednesday night, 5900 block 37th SW
Last Friday night (reported Saturday 3/26), 6300 block 42nd SW

Sunday night, 7300 block 29th SW
Last Saturday night (reported Sunday), 2400 block SW Holden
Monday night, 8400 block 6th SW

No specifics (car description, etc.) are included in what’s mapped; while SPD still tweets vehicle thefts at @getyourcarback, they still don’t include any location or incident-number information (we’ve asked). That’s why we appreciate reader reports so we can publish complete info (firstname.lastname@example.org or text 206-293-6302) – we did get and publish this one for the Friday night theft at Westcrest. If you see what you think might be a stolen vehicle, call 911.
