West Seattle Crime Watch: Grocery thief steals school snacks; dumped bicycles

In West Seattle Crime Watch tonight:

STOLEN GROCERIES: From Ryan in Gatewood/south Morgan Junction:

Our Amazon Fresh grocery delivery was stolen from our front door this morning between 4 am – 6 am. We live on SW Myrtle St near Caffe Ladro. Unfortunately, it contained all of the school snacks we had ordered for our son’s preschool class. I confirmed with Amazon that it was delivered and our empty Amazon Fresh containers we left out had been taken.

DUMPED BICYCLE #1 Also in south Morgan Junction, this bicycle turned up, apparently abandoned, near the McDonald’s:

DUMPED BICYCLE #2: And Jason found this one in an unspecified location:

Recognize either of those? Let us know. Last but not least, another reminder:

    Once Amazon feels the pain of having to replace stolen groceries and supplies over and over, they’ll put a crackdown on theft.  This will probably be the first time in Seattle that anyone has actually put in funding to increase enforcement and try to cut down on theft.  When Amazon tells the council to jump, they ask how high.

      Are you so myopic in your thinking that you actually and truly believe that the Seattle City Council is going to channel additional funding to the SPD in order to provide more resources to “crack down” on door step grocery theft?

      Why not just take it a step further and theorize that Amazon will just hire off-duty SPD officers to escort all Amazon Fresh delivery trucks around the city?  This is almost as plausible as what you have suggested.

    What could these “crooks” really do with all those snacks anyways???  Is there a Black Market for children’s snacks or are they just going to eat them all, if so I hope they are really hungry and needed the food.

    The blue bike looks a lot like one I would see a young adult riding south on 16th from the direction of South Seattle. You might see if they have a way to post that it’s been found.

    Unknown,  people don’t necessarily steal because they need things.  There are plenty of people who steal because they’re self centered,  self entitled  POS A-Holes

    #1 reason I stopped using Amazon Fresh…I had food stolen more than once. I also had to stop my CSA, as the same thing happened.

    It would be reasonable for amazon to use buns that had tracking on them in high crime areas.  Something like Tile or Lyfe that has gps tracking.  Sure there is a cost to it but eventually Amazon will have to weigh the lost business from people cutting off service vs loss prevention expense.  Also, with City Council regulations on businesses lately I wouldn’t put it past them to get involved :-)

    RE: DUMPED BICYCLE #1, That one might have belonged to a recent newcomer from Great Britain or other Commonwealth country; the rearview mirror is still on the “wrong” side.

    I think the grey bike in photo #2 might be my stolen bike,  maybe. Same brand same color. I had posted May 2015. I’ll look up my serial # and get back to you. .
