WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Another package theft on video

The photos and video are from Roger, who belatedly discovered a package theft from a little over a week ago:

47th and Graham. Just wanted to let you know that we had a package thief on March 9th, we just tracked down that it was stolen, first time in 5 years this had occurred here.

He took the package at 2 pm, after the UPS man dropped it off at 11 am. Luckily it was just a cheap door mat that day. He was definitely on a mission looking for packages, parked his truck hitting the curb, jumped out, sprinted back and forth from our front door. Doubted he even saw our cams. …

Keep on the lookout, didn’t appear to be anyone from our immediate neighborhood but please pass around.

P.S. Next West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting – to which you are invited to bring neighborhood crime and safety concerns, so you can talk with, and hear from, police – is on for Tuesday, 7 pm March 21st, at the Southwest Precinct (2300 SW Webster).

    I have had 6 packages stolen from my house since January of this year.  Made two police reports.

    What a jerk, hope he gets caught.  Unfortunately for me, he looks like me from that angle too.   Damn my balding head!  Sorry this guy stole items, glad the item wasn’t super expensive or vitally needed.  The more of us that have security cams on our homes, the better.  Get these people by various angles and hopefully track their path for the police to get them.   That F150 is bone stock and a base model standard cab.  Any chance some local businesses use those as a fleet vehicle still?  Just being that standard fleet vehicle style, might be a good way to limit who’s driving them.

    Just drove by uptown espresso and true value

    tried to get license plate but didn’t have a chance.

    I’d like to install a camera on my house, but clueless at how to do this. Is there a company out there who does this kind of work?  

  • Mark March 19, 2017 (3:48 pm)

    This brazen theft needs to be stopped, if cops and courts do not meet out justice private parties will eventually.  People are getting tired of this, bikes are stolen with impunity where does it stop?

    With video evidence this person needs to be caught and penalized.

    Was this reported to the police Roger?

    • WSB March 19, 2017 (5:37 pm)

      Roger said he was reporting to police – that’s always the first thing we ask if Crime Watch reader reports don’t mention it – I’ve e-mailed him asking for the incident # as there seem to be multiple potential tips on this so far.

  • Roger March 19, 2017 (6:45 pm)

     Yes, it has been reported to the police and video/photos were submitted on a thumb drive tonight to a officer. Glad to hear someone might know the guy…

    • wssz March 20, 2017 (1:04 am)

      Roger: The images and video are really clear. What kind of security camera are you using? Is it reliable?

  • Might know this guy March 19, 2017 (9:56 pm)

    I called today they had no incident report that’s way I ask. 

    • WSB March 19, 2017 (10:44 pm)

      We have since verified that one was filed. We will do a better job of getting and including incident #’s, particularly when it’s something like this.

    • Roger March 20, 2017 (6:42 am)

      Because of your tip yesterday, I followed-up and was told that the online police reports (that I submitted) are not viewable by dispatch..so maybe that’s why they couldn’t match it. But it is indeed an official police report so this time they sent a officer by who collected a thumb drive with video/photos. Another neighbor on the corner also had her package stolen the same day. They said he lives somewhere in the neighborhood and has been identified at this point. Sad that neighbors are stealing from neighbors. Re other post: the t-shirt appeared to have a tribal design.

  • faceless March 19, 2017 (11:13 pm)

    what does his T-shirt say?


  • Jason March 20, 2017 (8:01 am)


    I believe the guy in this video is also the same guy. This video takes place 4 months ago a couple of blocks from the Alaska Junction.

  • Might know this guy March 20, 2017 (1:14 pm)

    That is totally the same guy. I hope they stop him quick. 

  • SillyGoose March 20, 2017 (2:02 pm)

    I live just up Graham home during the day have not seen this guy, but now I will be looking!! Sssheeesh  what is wrong with these people?

  • Might know this guy March 20, 2017 (2:55 pm)

    Is it ok to warn people he lives in the area? Not sure if that’s inappropriate but I walk by his house everyday on the way to work. 

    • WSB March 20, 2017 (3:32 pm)

      I think that’s already been said. We don’t publish names of people who haven’t been charged – we are showing these images because they clearly catch someone in the act of a crime – nor would we ever publish an address (unless a search warrant was being served there, for example) but if you have a neighborhood watch, for example … Most important is to get info to police, and I think you said you’ve done that.

      All that said – working on another Crime Watch report that might be the same guy, out today – stand by!

  • wsres March 20, 2017 (5:30 pm)

    i know who this guy is… i thought i knew him from the last video report, but wasn’t sure, but this video confirms it. he lives in the ws area for sure. what a dummy. 

  • BrianD March 20, 2017 (6:08 pm)

    Remember: If It Isn’t Reported To Police, THE CRIME DIDN’T HAPPEN! Police can’t/won’t investigate if they don’t have a case!

Sorry, comment time is over.
