WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen silver Chevy Sonic; vandalized window; backyard theft attempt

Three reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch:

STOLEN CAR: Be on the lookout for Robert‘s car:

Our car is a 2013 Chevy Sonic LT hatchback with noticeable bumper stickers.

It was stolen from the parking lot of our apartment at the Overlook at Westridge on 600 SW Kenyon St between 6:30 and 9 PM last night 11/17. The police incident # is 17-426990. License plate # ANU8386.

Call 911 if you see it.

ROCK THROWN THROUGH WINDOW: This also happened in Highland Park, near 12th/Thistle:

Around 10:30 pm (Wednesday, November 15th), 3 boys walked past our house, threw a rock, broke our bay window, and ran away.

Luckily, no one was injured. The victim has security video and has filed a police report – the number is 17-910494.


Our back porch light went out and I hadn’t had the time to replace it for about a week or two – in the meantime someone (last night 11/17/17) went into our backyard and tried to steal my BBQ. It’s a green egg so they could not do it (it’s ceramic and weighs over 200 lbs). The reason I know it happened yesterday sometime is that I was in my backyard before work about 8:30am on 11/17 and everything was in order. I woke up this morning to find the following:

Moral of the story – keep your porch lights on and if your BBQ doesn’t weigh > 200lbs like mine then lock it down.

P.S. Another reminder that the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meets Tuesday, 7 pm at the Southwest Precinct (2300 SW Webster) – if you have a neighborhood crime concern/question, bring it so you can ask about it.

    Robert-I’m sorry about your car but it’s an on going crime ring that has targeted that complex for years. The management and owners know this happens on a regular basis and won’t hire security or put up cameras. My truck was stolen four years ago from there. We moved out immediately after realizing this was apparently a normal thing that goes on there according to other tenants at the time.

    Did one of the 3 boys who threw those rocks wear a blue jacket? There was an occurrence last night at 1 A.M. where 3 teenagers(?) were going around causing trouble on 17th and Henderson. A driver-by came out his car and started fighting the 3 individuals and drove off. The trio then proceeded to terrorize a nearby homeowner who told them to get lost by setting off his car alarm in what sounded like a physical altercation. There was a cop response but they seemed a bit frustrated arguing with the homeowner and eventually left.

Sorry, comment time is over.
