West Seattle Crime Watch: Two stolen cars

10:57 AM: We have just received reader reports about two stolen cars you are asked to help look for:

SILVER HONDA CIVIC: Russell says his brother’s 3-door silver Civic, license #AZH2263, was stolen from 13th/Webster this morning. He adds, “Also, he is a construction worker. There was a copious amount of hand tools and power tools. Possible that people will be pawning his tools soon.”

BLACK AUDI Q7: Received by text: “Our Black 2015 Audi Q7 was stolen last night (Saturday) sometime between 11pm and 7 AM (Sunday) from the North Admiral neighborhood (45th Ave SW). The license plate # is VM8672.” One distinctive thing: “Right rear lower door panel was missing showing white plastic panel attachments.”

Call 911 if you see either car.

UPDATE: The Audi’s owners texted to say that thanks to this post, it’s been found.

    It seems to me that these are two very different thefts.  While Hondas are known as being easy to steal, and as such are frequent targets of thieves, a late model Audi Q7 with an engine immobilizer and a chipped key would likely need to be stolen with some kind of specialized electronic device.  If the owner has Audi Connect they may be able to locate the car with an app (unless the thieves thought to remove the SIM from the car).

    Hondas, like other cars, are easy to  steal if you don’t alarm the car; but they are challenge, like many alarmed cars, if you do alarm it.  That being said, I do believe they are one of the most desirable to steal.

    No year given on the Honda. The 2015 wasnt stolen unless it was done professionally. Rare, but can happen. Someone got the spare key. Someone somehow got a spare key to exactly match at a dealer, or it was towed. Otherwise, its fluff. I’ve pointed this out in recorded interviews, nine times out of ten they ask to quit recording. Sign a waiver of claim to drop the claim and avoid prosecution. Again, it can happen. Not often. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
