West Seattle Crime Watch: Bleeding burglar; stolen bike; pilfered packages

Three reader reports tonight, including stolen items you’re asked to watch for:

CASE OF THE BLEEDING BURGLAR: Mary wonders if a wound might help identify whoever broke into her house:

Our house was broken into while my family and I were trick or treating. They broke our dining room window, used a lawn chair from outside to get in.

They cut themselves pretty bad because we have big blood drops all over our house. They stole a Dell Inspiron laptop, model # i15RV-3763BLK, a backup hard drive, 3 iPod touches (all locked), 2 iPhones (locked), all of our down coats, a black backpack with the only set of keys to a truck we own, and much more. Most things can be replaced, but not all the photos on the computer and backup hard drive of when my daughter was little; this breaks my heart. If found please contact MLA77@msn.com – Our neighbors had 3 suspicious young men all dressed in black hoodies wearing backpacks forward. When he answered the door, they didn’t say a word, seemed odd. If you know someone dressed in a black hoodie with a very deep cut, report it?? This was near 30th and Trenton.

STOLEN BICYCLE: Taken last night from Fauntleroy/Dawson, Kristin reports:

Bike was stolen between 8 pm and 11:30 pm 11/3/16. Bike was chained to rod iron railing of front porch. Chain had been cut.


Yesterday, 11/3, I had three packages stolen from my front porch in the 9200 block of 13th Ave SW. One was a personalized coffee mug from my 80-year-old great-uncle. The other two were women’s clothing I ordered online (bralettes from Victoria’s Secret and long-sleeve tees from Gap). My gate was left wide open, too. They must have seen three packages piled up and grabbed them. I’m contacting USPS, FedEx, and the companies. Just wanted neighbors to know, as well. Plus, maybe someone will find the items thrown out since they are more personal than valuable?

We hope crime never happens to you. If it does – report it to the police – and then consider letting us know so you can alert your neighbors peninsula-wide via West Seattle Crime Watch on WSB. editor@westseattleblog.com, or 206-293-6302, text or voice, for breaking news – thank you!

    Even if your phones are missing, and assuming you have a computer, have you tried using “Find My iPhone from Apple?  I know SPD is reluctant to take action, but if the location of the i-devices corresponds to a known suspect, maybe they might take action.  In case you haven’t done so here is the link.  It will even let you brick the iPhones but that is a last step.

    On closer reading of the current Apple Software page, I see that you most likely already took these steps. With that many iDevices you probably know what you are doing. My bad.

Sorry, comment time is over.
