WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Burglary; suspected break-in attempts; package taken

Three more reports to share before night’s end:

ANOTHER OCCUPIED BREAK-IN: Just before getting word of the arrests in the 11th/12th/13th SW burglaries, we were looking into another “occupied burglary,” early today in the 9000 block of 16th SW. But this wasn’t related, police told us – they believe the intruder was “looking for shelter,” entering a house that had a prior incarnation involving drugs, and his description was different – “unknown race,” 5’10”, slender. No arrest reported.

POSSIBLE BURGLARY ATTEMPTS: Anonymous reader report:

Location: 12th Ave SW between SW Holden St. and SW Kenyon St. (7700 block of 12th Ave SW)

I awoke at 5 am this morning and opened my shades. An hour or so later, I looked out my kitchen window and a screen was leaning against my garage door that hadn’t been there earlier. I went to my next-door neighbors and saw that the screen had been removed from one of their windows. I spoke with my neighbor and scary thing is that they were home during this attempt. It sounds like their dog barking may have scared the suspect off.

PACKAGE TAKEN: This reader report includes a screenshot from a brief video clip showing someone taking a package from outside an apartment at West Ridge Park on Delridge south of Holden:

The package contained work boots.

    The same two people took 3 packages from my doorstep yesterday.  They both are on video.  They are living in an RV at 28th Ave SW and SW Yancy.  I retrieved my property myself at their RV.  SPD has taken a report this morning.  I can give you photos/video if you would like to add, or more detail if you like.  Thank you.

Sorry, comment time is over.
