WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 2 reader reports; 2 chances to talk with police

In West Seattle Crime Watch tonight:


We found a package half opened in our front yard today… looks like someone grabbed it from our porch and, when it turned out to be very light in spite of its large-ish size, half opened it and saw there was just a hat inside and dropped it… We’re on 20th SW just south of Barton. I think we got lucky, but wondered if anyone else might have been hit through here today.

SUSPICIOUS PERSON: From a Beach Drive resident:

I wanted to alert my neighbors in the Beach Drive/Seaview area about a man who has been casing my property multiple times this week; one time we noted him driving a 2010ish silver Toyota sedan. We activated our security camera and (Sunday) we caught him and a woman on camera walking around our front yard. We are hoping someone may recognize them and contact the police with additional information. This is our incident number with the SPD, 2017-132766.

TWO CHANCES TO TALK WITH POLICE: If you have questions or concerns – this week brings two public events where you can talk with local police. Tomorrow (Tuesday) night, 7 pm, at the Southwest Precinct (2300 SW Webster), it’s the monthly West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting, including a guest who’ll talk about the SPD Safe Place program and Metropolitan Police Museum. Then Wednesday at 1 pm, it’s the first West Seattle Coffee with a Cop, at Starbucks in The Junction (California/Alaska).

    Nothing to see here, move along, the mayor and council have said it’s a non problem area.  

    No joke, that’s what they called 3rd and Pike when I sent in a formal complaint a couple years ago.  Time to vote them out, vote to increase SPD headcount.

      When have the mayor/council said West Seattle is a non-problem area? Anyway, the mayor and two council seats (citywide 8 and 9) are on the ballot this year. The other 7, including this area’s District 1 seat, will be on the 2019 ballot. – TR

    Re the couple in the yard, a friend pointed out that they might be looking for plants to steal.   We have someone that takes our sprinkler system parts and have done so for a few years.

Sorry, comment time is over.
