WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Package-theft evidence dumped

Received from Sheridan a short time ago:

Just witnessed two people in a vehicle dumping the boxes of stolen packages in the alleyway behind my house near 22nd SW & SW Cloverdale. Reported to Seattle Police along with car’s registration number. Was a light blue/silver Honda CRV.

      Police took all the boxes and packing slips for record. Only items left behind were a Harry Potter DVD or book set and a baby’s soft toy which the police took. The photo only shows half the boxes that were left. I suggest anyone who has seen this car to report it. The CRV that I saw looked pretty new. The officer said they supposedly ran the plate, but didn’t say anymore. There were only two occupants in my case and they didn’t seem the slightest bit concerned I was looking right at them and taking down the registration plate. They even took the time to get back out of the car to check it as they hit their rear bumper as it bottomed out as they backed out of the alley.

    Lets talk options folks- yes there are situations where there is no other option but for many people there is a more successful way to receive packages.

    Amazon Locker is a great, no extra charge and your package is safe.  Lockers are all over the place.

    Have it delivered to work.

    Do you have a friend or neighbor who works from home?

    Other suggestions?

    The only way these thieves are going to stop is when there is nothing on doorsteps to steal.

    Observed a light blue honda cr-v pull up in front of my house and the occupants proceeded to open and dump boxes a little bit ago. Reported the individuals to police but they gone too quick for a response. There were four males so I didn’t feel comfortable confronting them over property theft. They left one item behind so I dropped the package back at the address on the box. Frustrating…

    Had a package stolen from or doorstep on 37th Ave at 12:57p on Thursday. Camera couldn’t get the face or license plate, but appears to be same light blue/silver CRV.

    hope the thief is enjoying their baby stroller insert. Ridiculous.

    Filed police report for what it’s worth.

Sorry, comment time is over.
