WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 2 reader reports + WSCPC preview

Three West Seattle Crime Watch notes:

CAR PROWL: From Brian:

Thought I’d report this in case so Neighborhood Watch will be on the lookout. Car prowler entered my girlfriend’s car Tuesday night. She doesn’t keep valuables so nothing was taken. Her paperwork from the glovebox was strewn about. My cross street is Brandon and 23rd. Reported to police. Going to set up surveillance.

DUMPED LOOT? Steve e-mailed the photo below after finding “a pack and a lunch sack on 42nd between Andover and Dakota”:

Yours? Let us know.

    Just a head’s up to people. Yesterday a teenager came to my house and my wife answered the door.  The kid then asked if Eli lived there. My wife said no and asked him Eli’s last name which he said Burmer (sic?). 

    This happened in the Westwood area during the day around noon. The kid was white, wearing a gray sweat shirt, dirty blonde hair, and had a back pack. Don’t know the intentions, but it is suspect that the kid didn’t know where his friend lived and this is a common ploy for casing houses.

    I didn’t know to report on here but filed a police report when our car was broken into/vandalized overnight on 3/27-3/28. Our cross street is Brandon and Delridge. Nothing particularly valuable was in our car, but we had left our winter coats in the car and a baby carrier. They also cleared the contents of the glove box. Total damage to the car: around $5,000. We will also be setting up some sort of surveillance. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
