CRIME WATCH: Stolen car found; trailer full of tools taken; another package-theft alert

We start tonight’s Crime Watch with a followup:

STOLEN SUBARU LEGACY FOUND: An update from Liz, more than two weeks after we included her car-with-bike-inside theft on Crime Watch:

Our Subaru was found! It was parked in the neighborhood right next to the Taco Bell in White Center. Sadly, the bike was not in there. They also stole some tools, a first-aid kit, and two CD books with about 300 CDs in them. It was parked there for over a week, so somebody that lived in that neighborhood called it in.

Two new reader reports:


On Sunday, January 21st 2018, at about 6 PM, an unknown individual or individuals were caught on surveillance footage pulling into the back fenced off parking lot of La Mexicana/WestSide Baby in White Center. They then hooked up to my father Sean Sullivan’s 2004 Pace-American Cargo Trailer (Single Axel) with an orange, green, and white Ireland sticker on the back and proceeded to steal it:

Kept in this trailer, an extensive amount of Work tools and equipment that he has collected over the last 10 years as he worked to create his own company, SULLIVAN ELECTRIC LLC. The trailer was uninsured since it was used mainly for storing the larger tools and hardly ever moved …
-Trailer: Pace-american white 12ft cargo trailer single axel
-2 Bosch mac bit roto-hammer
-1 Dewalt roto-hammer
-1 Air compresser single tank
-1 brad nailer
-1 finish nailer
-1 Dewalt chop saw
-1 skill 77 worm drive circular saw
-brand new rigid vacuum
-Loose electrical wire
-1 Sawzall
-1 Milwaukee portaband band saw
-Misc hand tools & drills
-Bosch laser leveler
-misc electrical equip(boxes, fittings, conduit, etc)

If you have any information, you can reach Peyton at 425-312-4461 or Sean at 206-419-8884, or call 911.

PACKAGE TAKEN: Martyn shares this security video and reports:

Our Amazon package was stolen an hour after delivery in the Fairmount Springs Neighbourhood. Sharing to raise awareness for neighbors and highlighting the ineptitude of delivery drivers leaving packages in the middle of a doorstep when it could have easily been left to the side and out of view.

    Don’t blame the driver. Have your packages delivered to your place of business. This guy just follows delivery trucks all day long stealing packages. He saw the package delivered, made note of the address then returned to steal it. No sense hiding the package when he already knows it’s there. If he doesn’t see it (meaning you have taken your package inside), he just moves on to the next address. It’s usually 2-3 guys or gals working together. They communicate via their cell phones. The person noting the address isn’t necessarily the person stealing the package. West Seattle is a magnet for this type of theft. Next time you see a delivery truck, just watch and see it in action. Cars will have stolen license plates or no plates.

    This is most certainly my neighbors across the street. Im looking at the truck now and it matches. The tool box in the back too. They had a trailer that was there last week as well. Which is why the truck was back into the driveway and sticking out. I think I have pics. Ill check

Sorry, comment time is over.
