First theft of two in tonight’s reader reports – a bicycle stolen from Melecio:

My bright orange Marin Mt bike was stolen out of my car next to Camp Long. Nice bike. Front and rear disc brakes. Had Ing Direct logo and Lion on it. Hopefully I will get lucky and it will be returned.

Second, from Rhonda:

Theft last night at the corner of Manning/Belvidere Ave SW between the hours of 1 am to 8 am. My car was parked inside my fence. Burglars came onto my property. Stolen items: Thule Canyon 859 Carrier Basket and roof rack assembly. Please be sure that all items on top of your cars are secured and locked! Police have been notified.

    For stolen bikes – it’s worth trying Bike Index  If your bike hasn’t been stolen yet you can register it now just in case.  Or like me, wait for it to be stolen and dig up an old photo to post at the site.  I actually got my bike back several weeks after having it stolen downtown.  Turns out a guy at the Seattle Westin sometimes checks the bikes that turn up in their garage or in their alley against those listed at bikeindex.

    Is there an accident on the bridge? don’t see anything on the traffc cams but the bridge seems really slow this am.

      Sorry, we couldn’t do traffic coverage this morning as we were having technical trouble that finally just got solved and it’s too late to do anything but move on to other stories. – TR

    If you have a stolen bike, i wonder if it is under the west seattle bridge by 4th ave exit. the homeless camp there is filled with bikes and bike parts. i am sure many are stolen…

     that spot under the bridge has to be a lagit repair shop for bikes. Because if there was a thought they might be stolen the police would break it up and arrest the crooks.

    Over on FB on the( West Seattle Shares site ) someone posted that they found purses, backpacks and other misc stuff on Manning Street.  The gal said that cash was sticking out of the purse.  She said the police did not think it was stolen.  Not sure if the police came to take a look at it or not? She posted a picture of the items that she found in a pile.

    Hey Rhonda, My Thule was stolen the other night. What area are you in? Just think they might be the same folks that took mine off my truck. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
