WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Alki hit-run; South Admiral discovery

Two West Seattle Crime Watch notes this morning:

ALKI HIT-RUN: From Russ and Kim:

Our 2002 Volvo S60 was parked on SW Stevens street in front of our house (last night). Around 11 pm we heard a crash outside and saw a pickup truck zooming away. It had clipped the front of our car as it turned right down the alley the leads down to Alki Ave.

The whole front of our car was taken off. Called SPD and they responded quickly and are looking for a pickup — a big one that might be carrying two barrels in its back (according to our neighbor, who caught a brief look).

We are fine. Just an annoying hit-and-run. SPD is on the lookout, but if anyone sees a pickup — probably a larger one — with damage to its front right side, please let us know.

DUMPED ITEMS: The photo and report are from Teresa:

She found the items in the parking lot at 3700 California SW early Friday morning and turned them over to police: “The purse on top still had the wallet, ID and cash inside. I did not look in the rest of the bags but high heels were falling out of a tote. I don’t remember the person’s name but the address on their ID said Marysville.” So contact SPD if you know whose these are.

    There was an attempted purse snatching at Talarico’s last Thursday night. We ran the guy down and some ladies stuck their leg out and tripped him and he left the bag. He was a younger white male, maybe in his early twenties wearing a black and teal rain jacket.

      Thanks to you and the others who jumped in to help! I heard a little about this but couldn’t track down a police report to write about it.

    If the ID is still in the purse can;t the owner be found?

Sorry, comment time is over.
