West Seattle Crime Watch: After the car prowls…

In West Seattle Crime Watch … two unusual things that happened after car prowls:

CHANGE OF HEART: From Nicholas:

On Saturday night at 45th and Brandon someone went through my car and they stole my parking pass for work, some miscellaneous lottery tickets that were not winners, and unfortunately my work iPhone and charger which I had accidentally left in the console. (Monday) morning the strangest thing happened my work iPhone was sitting on my trunk of my car they apparently decided to return the phone but kept the OtterBox case. Thanks for getting my work phone back to me. I hope you find peace and happiness in whatever it is you’re looking for in this life.

POST-PROWL CASING? From Matt in Arbor Heights:

Strange situation occurred (Sunday) night. Someone knocked on our door around 7 pm and asked to speak with my wife, saying that they went to school together on the east-coast. He then wanted me to go get her and I told him absolutely not. He then asked to see a picture of her. After he left, I finally put two and two together. My wife’s purse was stolen about 3 weeks ago in the parking lot at Lincoln Park along with her ID, credit cards, etc. Someone broke into the car (smashed the window) while my wife was at the beach with our kids.

The police say they are likely casing our house and that similar incidents have occurred recently in West Seattle when property or identification has been stolen. Please be advised.

    That takes some major cajones (more likely, a huge need to secure drug money) to case a person’s house face-to-face. That crook is just lucky the homeowner didn’t put the pieces together on the spot. “Stay right there while I call police” would have been a nice touch.

    Complete and total scum.

    Sometime after midnight Sunday night and by early Monday morning my friend Todd had his  black locked VW Passat (Lic.#ARG9180)stolen from in front of his residence at the s/w corner of 46th and Juneau St. and his neighbor had their car broken into also during the same time.

      Sorry to hear that. We can feature it in Crime Watch – I’m about to write one, once the bridge crash wraps up. – R

    Everyone I care to speak with has my cell number and know to call first.  I never answer my door for unexpected persons.
