WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen gold Honda Accord

Just out of the WSB inbox, from Beetle:

My car was stolen this morning around 2 am- 3 am around 18th Ave SW and Elmgrove. My CCTV footage showed 2 possible males drive by in a minivan; one got out as a lookout and the other got into my car and they both drove off.

It was a gold ’95 Honda Accord lX with minor body damage to driver’s-side front panel and rear. WA license plate AYU4885. Not a fancy car but it was a reliable way to work an hour away from here. Any info if seen around the neighborhood would help greatly. I have already reported it stolen and this is the second time it’s happened … same car and location.

Call 911 if you see it.

    Stolen Honda. Say no more.

      Yes, Hondas have something of a theft challenge, especially ’90s. And yet they’re great cars (we’ve had two over the years, including a 14-year-old Honda that’s still alive and kicking), and over the years I think the stolen cars for which we’ve published reader reports have spanned most makes.

    What’s the van look like

      My cameras dont pick up well at night as far away as it occurred. I can say it looked like a white pontiac style minivan. It had a sloped front unlike a astro van or other common minivans around here.

      I know its a commonly stolen vehicle and im not suprised it was taken again. It was low hanging fruit so im hoping they just took the stereo and didnt drive it in a ditch.

    Sorry to hear about your car.. I live at 17th and Elmgrove. When I went out this morning my driver door was open. I know I locked it, very concious after it was stolen 3 years ago. The ignition is broken, going to be awhile before I can afford to pay to fix it. Hope you get it back.

    Sadly our Honda was stolen last Saturday night between 10 and midnight.

    Ours was our only means of transportation because we chose to take the bus to work.

    Our Honda was a beat up looking one that had a ton of miles but that being said it was a Honda Civic.

    We live at 34th and Juneau.

    My thoughts are with you.

      If it’s still missing, send us some info and we can post for people to be on the lookout for it. The only info ever available from police is that there was an auto theft in x block of x street, not what kind of car or what the plates are, etc., so that’s why we encourage and publis reader reports – editor@westseattleblog.com

Sorry, comment time is over.
