West Seattle Crime Watch: Child’s bicycle stolen; hit-and-run; 2 more reader reports

Four reader reports tonight in West Seattle Crime Watch:


My son’s bike was stolen off our porch last night. It was locked with a heavy cable lock. The cable was cut. He had gotten it for his birthday from Alki Bike and Board just over a month ago. He is heartbroken. It is a 24″ Haro Flightline, red with black accents. There are probably others in WS, so its not reasonable to suspect any bike that fits is stolen. If you suspect that one like this might be stolen, we would love to know about it.

HIT AND RUN: From Kristin:

This evening at about 7:35 a red, Mustang Mach 1 (or similar car) with a white racing stripe struck our orange Honda Fit parked in the 6000 block of 38th Ave. SW. Somewhere out there is a distinctive car with damage to the front passenger side, just waiting for someone to recognize the damage and call it in. If you see the Mustang, please get the plate number and notify the police. The incident was witnessed by two super-helpful and friendly CenturyLink salesmen who were out in our neighborhood. They knocked on our door to let us know and gave their information as witnesses. I mention this because I know some people have been concerned about CenturyLink knocking on doors at night. These 2 were legit. We’ve filed a report with the police. Thanks for your eyes and ears, West Seattle!!

LICENSE PLATE FOUND: GW reports, “I found a rear auto plate close to 20th and Cloverdale. The number is C86002F with April 2017 expiration. Don’t know if it is from a stolen car or what. Reported to police. On an annoying side note a package was stolen from my mailbox (Wednesday) too but I expect you hear lots of those.”

CAR BREAK-IN: Derek in the 4500 block of 45th SW reports, “Last night my car got broken into and a set of Titleist golf clubs and bag were stolen.”

    Sorry to hear that Paul. I’ll keep an eye out as I’m sure many will also do.

    People say it all the time but it is true: do not leave ANYTHING in your car or on your porch if it has any value to you. I have had the nightmare of my car being broken into twice, in two separate locations. After the second time I learned that you are just encouraging people to break in by leaving your belongings in there-sad but true.

    Ya just can’t have nice things anymore.  Our “leaders” want to reduce us to a third world country. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    I’m sorry for the kid who lost his bike.  Major bummer.  What will he learn from this?  Who knows? He learned it early, though.

Sorry, comment time is over.
