West Seattle Crime Watch: Little League’s mower stolen; bicycle taken; stolen car found

In West Seattle Crime Watch, three reports:


The West Seattle Little League’s new 2016 Kubota riding lawn mower was stolen from the equipment shed at Bar S. The thieves broke into the shed during the middle of the day Saturday sometime between 1:00-4:00 p.m. According to neighbors, one of the thieves was a white man in his 30’s wearing an orange safety vest. They left Bar S by cutting the chain and exiting the Southern side of the ballpark. If you have any information regarding this theft, please contact wsllgeneral@hotmail.com or 206-790-6358.

Or, call police. (The stolen mower looks like this.)

STOLEN BICYCLE: Matt tweeted this photo of his bicycle, stolen from his apartment building south of The Junction:


He says, “Brand is Specialized and the model is “Ground Control” (or at least that’s what it says on the frame). It’s gray, unknown number of years old. I got it for free from a coworker. Handlebars are flat.” It’s been reported to police.

STOLEN CAR UPDATE: We published JW‘s auto-theft report here on Saturday. Her followup:

My Honda has been found at the bottom of Fairmount Ave by parking enforcement, fortunately drivable. Yea! By any chance someone has any surveillance from 4:00 to 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning that could have captured it heading east on Hanford and turning left and heading down the Fairmount ravine, that would be killer.

    Dirtbags – all of them, especially the riding lawn mower guys. C’mon let’s catch these guys!

    I posted last week of my Trek 800 mountain track that was taken from my front yard during the night. My daughters bike was found safe. Still hoping that if anyone has seen the trek  or has it please return it. This holds so many memories of long distance rides  we have completed and I have not been the same since I saw it gone.

    Biker I know the frustration my bike was stolen two weeks ago.  Cops took a report and then nothing.  Seattle wants to be bike friendly but do virtually nothing to catch and penalize the thieves.  It would be nice if cops and courts start aggressively deal with this empidemic.  The thieves need to be held accountable and made to pay restitution

Sorry, comment time is over.
