WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Dutchboy Coffee burglarized

Jenni and Todd Watkins were going to spend a little well-deserved time relaxing today. Instead, they’ve been at their Dutchboy Coffee stand at 16th and Holden in Highland Park all day repairing damage done by burglars early this morning. The burglars took the door off its hinges – and made off with point-of-sale-processing equipment as well as items including two containers of milk. Video from the SeaMart convenience store next door shows two people approaching the stand just before 5 am, wearing gloves:

The video’s been shown to police. If you have any information, you can refer to SPD case number 17-328373. And yes, Dutchboy Coffee will be back open tomorrow, 6:30 am.

    Watching the video they seem to walk and dress  rather young.

    Yes, they seem young — and stupid. Let’s help the owners and buy our lattes at Dutchboy.

    Hello wonderful neighbors.  The thugs appear to be around 14-17… the kid has a bowl cut he’s young. I thank you for the good thoughts. Has to rain before the rainbow appears

      Jenni, please print out their photos and post them so all the neighbors can keep an eye out for these punks. We have too many cars and house break ins around here!

    Another couple of kids who clearly need to learn a lesson the hard way before it’s too late for them to learn it at all.

    We’ll be sure to get some drinks from you. I hope your recovery from this goes well.

    Shame, shame, shame on the burglars. You live evil lives and I hope you can change your ways soon.

    I’m sorry this happened to you.
