West Seattle Crime Watch: Car prowlers ‘score’

We heard it again at community meetings this past week – “car prowls,” aka car break-ins, remain the major crime category in our area. We don’t get incident details unless you share info with us, though, so thanks to Matt for this reader report:

Just in case you wanted to add it to the list, we had 2 of our cars broken into Thursday night on the 4400 block of SW Graham St.

Purse stolen from one of the cars and….. 4 tennis rackets, what a score!

P.S. Next crime prevention/safety meeting will be Tuesday, 6:30 pm, when the West Seattle Block Watch Captains Network meets at the Southwest Precinct – all welcome, whether you are part of a Block Watch or not!

    With car prowls bieng a daily occurrence in West Seattle I propose we start a Bait-Car program. 

    I will personally donate an old laptop and camera bag as “bait”. Im sure SPD has plenty of old impounded cars to tempt thieves with.

    If you’d like volunteers to sit in a van across the street sign me up.

Sorry, comment time is over.
