WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen Subaru Legacy, and two followups

Three notes in West Seattle Crime Watch tonight:

STOLEN CAR: Mark just e-mailed about his stolen car:

My car was stolen in front of South Seattle Collage main campus on the 5400 block of 16th Ave SW between noon – 2 pm 3/21/18. Inside the car was all my equipment for work- water jugs, cleaning equipment, hoses, etc.

It’s a white ’96 Subaru Outback with a “Alki” bumper sticker on the back, and a “Keep Tahoe Blue” sticker on the rear windshield. Licence # ANC9065. I have filed a police report. If anyone has seen this car, please call 911 immediately. I need this car to perform my job.

STOLEN CAR, FOUND: The white Nissan 200SX stolen from William yesterday has been found, he tells WSB.

$52,050 BAIL FOR NICHOLAS WATSON: We reported last night on the arrest of Nicholas Watson, wanted on warrants in burglary and stolen-car cases. Two weeks after his previous arrest in Upper Morgan, a judge allowed him to be released as long as he participated in the CCAP program – but, we learned last weekend, he stopped showing up after five days, according to documents, and a warrant was issued. Then, two more warrants. And yesterday, police arrested him. Tonight we know a little more about the circumstances – the topline-only police report says he was arrested in the 4800 block of Fauntleroy Way SW and accused of drug possession. And following a bail hearing today, he remains in jail in lieu of $52,050 bail – $25,000 for each failure-to-appear warrant in the stolen-car cases, the rest from the burglary warrant. We’ll continue following the case.

    Thanks WSB for looking out for us. As I said before this is a very hardened criminal with arrests and convictions in AK and other states and prowls homes and cars and steals everything he can and is very dangerous targeting areas in West Seattle. He has been released numerous times and is a recidivist offender. I am not sure if WSB can post a mug shot? This is a bad man!!!

    Thanks again for keeping us informed.

    My husband’s truck had a smashed window this morning. His work back pack is missing with work clothes in it. 

    Location near Rocky Beach where that plant is located. Parked on Benton Pl. Sw 98116.

    Neighbors be aware.
