WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Trailer stolen; carport prowlers on video; repeat offender wanted again

STOLEN TRAILER: K just e-mailed to say this was taken last night from Othello/Fauntleroy:

As shown in the photo, the plate is 7052-VJ.

(Added 1:10 pm) STOLEN TRUCK: From Carol:

Our 2005 Ford F-250 was stolen around 4 or 5 am this morning. It is a white pickup , diesel, Super duty, crew cab with a black roll bed cover. License #B66224G. It was parked in front of our house just off of Admiral Way on 64th Ave SW.

CARPORT PROWLERS: From 48th/Hudson, David shares this video and report from Tuesday:

So it looks like they’re working in pairs, one guy checks one car and the other guy checks the next car. They obviously don’t care about flashing lights, security cameras or video surveillance warnings. As I suspected they appear to be hitting the same areas night after night and are working in teams. They have hoodies on and are carrying backpacks. They’re in and out in 5 seconds or less. They’re looking specifically for unlocked cars because you can see them check the doors, so make sure you lock your car every night. Online report made to police.

ANOTHER WARRANT FOR JESSICA DETRICK: A texter says today that neighbors in Highland Park believe they’ve seen Jessica Detrick around again. Court records, in fact, show she is again wanted on a warrant. Detrick is a convicted burglar known for taking along her dog. When last we checked on her a month ago, she was arrested on a warrant for not complying with conditions of the drug treatment included in her sentence last year. A subsequent hearing, prosecutors said, resulted in a condition that she would go back to inpatient treatment and would stay in jail until a bed was available at a treatment facility; apparently something went wrong along the way, because she’s listed on the jail register as “released” March 15th, and the warrant (dated March 17th) says she was due to enter inpatient treatment that day but did not. This is a $15,000-bail warrant, as was the last one.

    Not sure why someone’s drug treatment details are such necessary information to broadcast in this post.

    • KBear March 29, 2017 (2:05 pm)

      I don’t see any details about her drug treatment, other than she didn’t comply with it. That was a condition of her sentence, not information divulged from a private medical record.

    • Coldheart Craig March 29, 2017 (2:45 pm)

      Steve, she’s intruded into so many lives here in West Seattle that she has made her current condition ALL our business.

     The only thing that comes to my mind with Jessica and the Judicial System is that movie Dumb and Dumber, not the context of the movie but the title only. 

  • Paul Binder March 29, 2017 (2:14 pm)

    Its public record.  And she is a “frequent flyer” in the system, I personally would want to know what is her status and I believe that the bail is too low.  Clearly if she is out and offending again.

  • Rico March 29, 2017 (2:22 pm)

    Not sure why anyone would be so concerned about this fine citizens right to privacy, though as stated above there were no details in the story in the first place about her failure to comply (again).  Personally I am more concerned with why and how she was let out of jail in the first place.  Why would you give a crap about her rights, she clearly has no regards for yours.

    Monday morning around 6 am I caught her on video trying to open car doors on our block.  With this she came upon my property and took part of a light that was attached to my fence.  We noticed the part missing around 1 pm and called the police.  Officer came out and took a report (incident # 17-108576) and looked at our video.  She was easy to recognize  with her backpack and the dog.    The officer called me back to confirm she has an arrest felony warrant and if anyone see’s her to call 911.  I did send the police 3 different angles of her & dog. Last year about this time she did break into our vehicle twice within 3 weeks.

    let me take a wild guess – she’ll agree to the same BS that kept her out of jail the last 10 times and get released and then arrested again in a few weeks.

  • M March 29, 2017 (7:23 pm)

    Why is all the city’s focus on harm reduction for the addicts? When will they start to focus on the harm that the addicts are causing everyone else?

    How much is the bounty on Jessica??? I’ll find her and bring her in if I get a bounty reward. Guaranteed!!!!!!!!

      Sorry, I don’t believe that is a practice except for bail-bond companies whose clients jump bail, and no bail-jumping was involved here.

    Hi WS Citizens – Jessica Detrick is working beyond just WS! She tried to break into my home in Queen Anne yesterday. We have about 10 minutes worth of very clear footage from our Nest cams of her trying to pry open windows and doors w/ a screwdriver.  Luckily she was unsuccessful and you could tell she was very annoyed.  The police came today and took a lot of fingerprints. Unfortunately, one of my neighbors wasn’t so lucky and it’s likely that she was responsible for a burglary that took place shortly before arriving at our house.   Hopefully this helps get her off the streets, at least for a while.  Be on the lookout for her and call 911 if you see her.  She’s a bit heavier than she was a year ago but she’s got the same dog, same hairstyle (always in a bun) and wears the same outfits – leggings and a backpack.  I feel sorry for her pooch. 

  • Mark Schletty March 30, 2017 (4:37 pm)

    I think the only drug treatment Detrick needs at this point is a very long time in prison with no access to drugs. That will break her habit and save many of our neighbors from more of her criminal activity.  She has repeatedly proven that she does not deserve compassion. Any Judge that releases her again to continue her assault on our neighborhoods should be charged with criminal conspiracy to commit burglary.

    Well even though I said she (along with the other guy in WSB past story on rehab alternative for these criminals)  would fail, I think we should give her another chance at it, don’t you think? 

    I mean, after all,  I just read that they were going to give a lengthy sentence to a woman just convicted of identity theft and she only had 13 felony convictions. How fair is that? 

    The rehab alternative to jail time is a joke, because these POS criminals are not agreeing to it to get help, but only to escape jail time. I have seen this first hand as an intern and have been told by the head (at the time)  of the chemical addiction counseling program at Seattle Central, that 87% (my friend says he said 93%) of the people who stop using drugs or alcohol do so on their own. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
