WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Package thieves, car prowlers on camera; auto-theft suspect charged

Three West Seattle Crime Watch notes so far today:

PACKAGE THIEVES ON CAMERA: So you’re out of town getting married … wedding gifts arrive back at home, and somebody steals them. That’s what you’re seeing on the video above, shared by Patrick:

This last weekend (June 12th, 2017 @ 2:02 AM) two package thieves approached our front porch and stole multiple wedding gifts (+$300 that we are aware of) that were shipped to us while we were out of town getting married on the Oregon Coast. Luckily we have not one, but two nest cameras installed that captured the two thieves red handed. This cut our trip a bit short, we were planning on staying till June 14th, 2017. After we got back home on the 12th, we promptly gathered all the evidence and reported it to the proper authorities.

This happened near 35th SW and SW Juneau. If you have any clues, contact police and refer to incident number 17-211339.

CAR PROWLERS ON CAMERA: Reported to us via text, two car prowlers “trying to break into vehicles on 25th Avenue SW last night about midnight and they dumped a bunch of stolen mail from 24th Avenue SW.” Here are images of both:

This incident number is 2017-213282.

FOLLOWUP – AUTO THEFT SUSPECT CHARGED: The 19-year-old found hiding in a Dumpster during a police search near 35th SW/SW Morgan on Saturday is now charged. Anzor E. Lomanov is charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, a felony. As noted in our followup, the Corolla from which two men – including, police say, Lomanov – bolted at the corner gas station was stolen from Tukwila earlier in the day. Lomanov remains jailed in lieu of $25,000 bail; the charging documents say police believe they know the identity of the other man, who got away.
