WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Car window smashed

Just out of the WSB inbox:

Our locked car in our alley just had rear window broken. My husband heard the black 4 door import car with approximately 4 white adult males cruise the alley. He walked outside and they drove off, only then did he realize the rear window was broken. Police have been notified. Thanks for costing us money we don’t have!

We live a block south of Admiral.

Police reiterate, call 911 if you see a crime or suspected crime in progress.

    Can you be a little more specific where you live?

    Location doesn’t matter that much.  this happens everywhere.  Often goes unreported (like my recent incident).   There was likely something that looked slightly valuable that they were aiming for.

    We live near Alki Mail & Dispatch.  Police said it happens frequently, be sure to report all crimes. We spent the day researching camera systems after replacing the $300 window. Any camera/light recommendations?

      Lisa thanks – we got our security set at Costco.

    after having my truck broken into – front window smashed and my expensive bike rack stolen- I investigated cameras and here is what I found after using multiple types. Don’t waste your money on 1080p – Go to 2K or better yet 4K. Get a video recorder that can accommodate 4K if you go with 2K so if you want to upgrade in the future to 4K you don’t have to buy another video recorder. Also night vision and color cameras matter most when you have to describe the color of clothing the perp is wearing. Don’t skimp on cameras- the details are important.  I also found that you can capture even more detail if you place camera’s hidden at feet level looking up. Most perps change their clothes but not their shoes:)
