WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Green Subaru Legacy stolen; 2 car prowls in 1 night

Two reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch. First, another stolen Subaru:

STOLEN LEGACY: The photo is from a reader who reports, “Our 1996 green Subaru Legacy sedan was stolen from in front of 3008 Alki Ave SW sometime between 4 pm Thursday and 915 am Friday morning. License is BAL5609. Seattle Police have been advised.” Call 911 if you see it.

ONE NIGHT, TWO CAR PROWLS: The video clips are from early Thursday morning, from Charlie‘s camera in upper Luna Park:

Charlie adds, “Both just checked if our cars were locked and moved on. I have a sneaking suspicion that the first prowler is the same person who we recorded several months ago.”

    Hoods may have hidden their faces but their distinct backpacks are nice identifiers.

    Car prowl is when a individual actually succeeds in gaining entry into a vehicle.This would be a attempted car prowl.Just saying.

      This is more the traditional definition of a prowler – and that’s why I use the term even if entry is not gained. And break-in, even if they open an unlocked door … etc.

        The WSB is correct. If a prowl is successful, it’s a stolen car.

Sorry, comment time is over.
