WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Garage burglar tries to steal bicycles; car vandalized

Two reader reports, plus crime-prevention advice, in West Seattle Crime Watch tonight.

BURGLAR TRIES TO STEAL BICYCLES: From J, a security-camera image and report:

Last night about 3:30 am a unidentified person broke into our condo garage on the 1300 block of Alki Avenue and attempted to steal our two Bikes. Fortunately the person was not able to break the lock and left.


My car was vandalized last night on Beach Dr. Back window was hit with something (no rocks in the car) and glass is completely shattered. It appears to be straight-up vandalism as the car was not broken into.

PREVENTING CAR PROWLS: Received today from Southwest Precinct Crime Prevention Coordinator Jennifer Burbridge, SPD advice on car-prowl prevention – see it here.

    @ J…  Ooooh, what is the brand of the lock used? (All bike owners reading this wanna know!) Thanks.

      It’s a u lock from OnGuard.  I have attached a photo  they were able to break the plastic housing but not the lock. Also, I contacted OnGuard and they are going to replace the lock for free!

Sorry, comment time is over.
