CRIME WATCH: Student robbed; white Jeep stolen (update – found!); package taken

Three West Seattle Crime Watch reports tonight:

STUDENT ROBBED: Thanks to the parent who forwarded the letter sent tonight to Chief Sealth International High School and Denny International Middle School families, about a crime that happened Thursday and was reported Friday:

We would like to let you know about an incident that occurred in the Sealth/Denny neighborhood that was brought to our attention yesterday. It occurred on Thursday afternoon at approximately 2:00 PM when a Sealth student was on his way home and was approached in a threatening manner by two youth from another school. They robbed him of his cell phone and made him take off his shoes but did not take them. The student and his parent reported the incident to the school yesterday morning and the police were called. They took the report and will follow up with an investigation.

No other details – the rest of the note to families consists of safety tips. We’ll be following up with police.


My Jeep was stolen in West Seattle last night around 11 pm near South Seattle College. I am out of country for two more days, I have friends and family looking out and contacted the police but need all the help I can get! It is a white ’92 Jeep Cherokee, I have attached a recent photo.

I have various things in the Jeep, clothing, camping items, etc., but not too worried about those. All paperwork is in the Jeep (not smart on my side). Hopefully can find in one piece.

(Update: Plate BBA7439 … Monday update: Found in Burien.)

PACKAGE TAKEN: Security video from the 6700 block of Beach Drive:

The sender says they have verified that this was not a retrieved misdelivery. If you recognize the person in the video, the police report # is 18-218524.

    @package theft person…your neighbor looks to have taken a picture of the vehicle I’d go see what they got from it.
