Three reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch:
STOLEN CAR: From Amy:
My son’s car was stolen on 24th & Holden sometime between 10 pm yesterday and 2 pm today (Thursday 5/10). Blue/green color, 4-door 2000 Honda Civic. License plate AVS9683. Cracked windshield and dented rear bumper. It’s been reported to police and he hopes to recover it, as sentimental-value items were in the trunk. If spotted, please call 911.
SPD incident # 2018-167234.
STOLEN BICYCLE: From Dawn:
Yet again another Cannondale bike was stolen from behind my apartment building. This is the 3rd one ! The U Lock was cut off. I’m getting tired of these thieves in our neighborhood. This is my only means of transportation. We are not allowed to bring our bikes into the building, so I invested in a U-Lock and it didn’t stop the thief or thieves from stealing it. It is a black Cannondale, with the writing Beast from the East on the frame. Please call Dawn @ 206-422-3785. Thank you.
STOLEN PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS: From Fred:
My car was broken into (Tuesday) night in the 1600 block of California Ave SW. Window smashed and black suitcase full of percussion instruments (bells, guiro, claves, drumsticks) stolen. There’s a slight chance that the thief dumped it somewhere once he or she realized that there was nothing of value, and I’d love to have it back. I have reported this information to the police.
P.S. Your next chance to check in with local police is next Tuesday, May 15th, 7 pm, when the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meets at the Southwest Precinct (2300 SW Webster). Special guest will be talking about transportation safety – SDOT’s Jim Curtin.
