WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Kite-surfing gear stolen

Our second report today of sizable items taken in a car prowl. This report is from Paul in the 3500 block of SW 98th [map] in Arbor Heights, where the theft happened sometime this weekend:

The main thing that was stolen was a large gear bag (black PGA golf bag with wheels) that contained kite-surfing gear:

Kite board
10 and 12 meter kites
Bar and line
Wet suit
Long board skateboard
About $2500 worth of stuff to the right person but worthless to most people

I also lost a black briefcase that had my entire financial life in it and an old MacBook Pro.

Hopefully the criminals just dumped it all somewhere and I can recover it soon.

If you have any information, the SPD incident # is 17-410552.

    Why do we all put up with this?

    It would be great if Lisa Herbold would address the rampant property crime.

    It is sad that these sizeable things are being stolen from vehicles. Size does not always equal worth  to the perpetrator, they’re just visible, and easy marks. It really is to our advantage to take the extra time to remove  these kinds of valuable things from our vehicle  before we lock it up.  Hope you get them back. The financial papers, especially. :(

Sorry, comment time is over.
