In West Seattle Crime Watch:

CAR BREAK-IN: From Patrick in the 4700 block of Delridge:

(Early Thursday) someone broke into my car around 4:30 am and stole sunglasses, change, and my house key. Suspect it was a prowler who on the previous night stole items from neighbors. Locks have been changed, but prowler is probably still around. People should be alert.

PURSE THEFT: From Michelle:

Last Monday, September 19 at 9 a.m., my mother dropped her purse on the sidewalk at the intersection of Manning and 41st Ave SW. When she realized it was missing and went back to look for it, it had been stolen. A neighbor reported seeing that a man pulled up in a truck and stole the purse, then drove away. On Thursday, this same man was observed on another neighbor’s porch, where he was reported to be looking around. Please be on the look-out for a white man who drives an older two-tone blue Chevy pick-up truck with a job box in the back. The man has light colored shoulder length hair and a narrow face and appears to be in his early 30s.

If you have any information about this individual, please contact the Seattle Police Department. There is a police report on file. 2016-339779

REPEAT-OFFENDER FOLLOWUP: A new charge is filed against one of the three repeat offenders whose cases we covered in this Tuesday story, with additional information in our Wednesday report on the West Seattle Block Watch Captains Network meeting. We mentioned 23-year-old Sean Jeardoe, previously convicted of multiple property crimes in West Seattle, and at the time didn’t know if his most recent arrest, related to a stolen vehicle, had happened here. Then on Thursday, we heard from the vehicle’s owner, who said it was a pickup truck had taken in West Seattle, near 34th and Barton, and that Jeardoe had been arrested with it at a Renton restaurant. Tonight, we found that Jeardoe was one of two people charged with stolen-vehicle possession in the case; the charging papers say someone reported him and a woman “unconscious” in the stolen pickup outside the restaurant. He remains held without bail.

(PROBABLY) STOLEN BICYCLES FOUND: Robert sent these photos:

He explained, “We have had a rash of probably stolen bikes found in the Pigeon Point neighborhood in the past week or two. I am attaching pictures of two of them. Both have flat tires and rusty chains.” If you recognize either, let us know (editor@westseattleblog.com, or comment below) and we’ll connect you.

    Regarding the Purse theft:  This sounds like the guy who was living near me in his RV earlier this year.  He was parked on 17th Ave SW and around 104th SW.  He dumped his garbage on the streets around here.  His Truck has Metal Recycling painted on the front of it.

    Someone broke into my roommate’s car on 48th and Dawson ST last night and ran off with a lot of mountain climbing equipment. He is a local climbing guide and his gear and tools are basically his resume, similar to a mechanic. Hopefully nobody else got hit in the area.

      He sent a note to us and it will be in the next Crime Watch this afternoon. Sorry to hear about it. Car prowlers will get *anything* left in cars, even secure garages in some cases. I believe your area also has a Block Watch so be sure they know about it too – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
