West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen car found, but personal items missing.

image1 (47)

If you see either of those plates, you might be able to help find some of Sarah‘s stolen stuff.

She serves in the U.S. Coast Guard and thought her car was safe in a gated garage in North Delridge while she was on leave. It wasn’t. It was stolen a week ago; it was found two days ago in Burien, but what was inside it is still missing.

Trying to spread word about my car being stolen from my gated garage of my apartment on August 15. They have now recovered the vehicle but everything stolen from inside. Only thing I wanted back was I had boxes of personal files and my military medical record. They also stole uniforms, camping stuff and other personal items.

I live in Youngstown Flats [4040 26th SW] and the week it happened the management office said they reported a suspicious white Ford Explorer to the police and then a few days later broke into another Ford Explorer in my building and stole my Ford Explorer. Seems like they were targeting this kind of vehicle. The plates that were recovered on my vehicle are registered to a white Ford Explorer so very possible they put my plates on another Ford Explorer.

Would like to pass to everyone to look at plates on all Ford Explorers and if it is AXF2314 to please call the police. Also my old Hawaii plates (2CHIVE) might been in a side compartment and could be used by the criminals but would draw attention, being Hawaii vanity plates.

… Other items missing are: Coast Guard uniform items (light blue top, dark blue pants, white shirt, black belt with gold buckle, combo cover (hat with name inside), hat bag, large blue medical file, Bill Murray Pillow, tan sleeping bag, tent in black bag, cooler with wheels and expanding handle, 2 Tommy Bahama chairs (red & blue), queen-sized air mattress, air pump, lantern and random camping stuff, Garmin GPS, red Hawaiian seat covers, solar powered Hulu girl, New Zealand Starbucks cup, blue VS water bottle, grey Santa Cruz hoodie, grey zip hoodie with Kauai on the left arm, Black “Hunter” boots, 2 slip on airwalk shoes(black with white dots and one with white skulls), hard hat (with YN2 on the back), black steel toe boots, gold color basket with clothes inside, white comforter, tan fleece blanket, 2 black crates with files, black box with papers, and box of Coast Guard papers.

If you find any of the above: The car theft is incident 2016-294604, with Seattle Police; the recovery is C16042085 with King County Sheriff’s Office.

    Might not be related, but we’ve seen a slow-driving (late ’90s / early 2000s?) white Ford Explorer cruising around the side streets of the Junction a few weeks ago (near Oregon / Genesee). They were just slowly (~5-8 MPH) driving up and down 42nd and 41st, breaking in the middle of the street for 10-20 seconds, and then driving through the roundabout to do passes on the other side of the street. They didn’t appear to be looking for parking. I assumed they were casing cars, given the unusual pattern. Didn’t have my phone on me at the time, or I’d have called it in. I’ll try to take down the plates if they show up again.

    Good luck in retrieving your property, Sarah. Sorry to hear it.

    Sorry to read about this. I will be on the lookout for the plates. Hope you are reunited with your belongings and records.

      Very bad that something like this can happen to anyone, especially a member of the armed forces in service to her country. There are some unbelievably evil, selfish, worthless, scum  out there–gets me very upset.

    Good luck. Keep us informed.

Sorry, comment time is over.
