WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen blue Ford pickup truck; car prowls

Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports this morning:

(10:50 am update: Plates B96816K.)

CAR PROWLS: Karen says this happened on 48th SW between Hanford and Hinds:

Just wanted to let you know that our block had a car prowler last night. My wife’s car was ransacked, but nothing taken and I could see one other vehicle while walking our dog that had it happen, as well. I forgot to lock the door after running out to move the car. We don’t keep anything of value, but they did go through everything. They opened everything.

    Do you have a photo of your pickup does it have loud mufflers on it?  I saw some questionable guys parking a blue pickup in the parking garage under Mod Pizza.  They seemed out of place.

      No It’s not loud and wouldn’t fit in a garage. But thank you for being on the look out

        Amanda yes it would fit in that parking garage. I owned one too. Got stolen five years ago.

    Our brown 2002 F-250 crew cab diesel (which is quite loud) was also stolen this morning around 5:55am.  It had been parked in front of our house in Admiral and I happened to be leaving our alley at the same time.  A red F-250 crew cab about the same age briefly blocked the exit to our alley as I was leaving and I watched my truck drive past.  The red truck then followed.  I couldn’t get the plate number off the red truck because it was obscured with a dark tinted cover.  I followed for a while (yes, I know, my wife already told me I was stupid to follow them) as I talked to 911 but lost them going south on West Marginal.

    There’s been a blue Ford truck abandoned at the Magnola Met Market for over 10 days.  SPD allegedly won’t respond.

      Have you seen it? Is the plate different? Here in West Seattle, police respond to and recover stolen vehicles multiple times a day (I hear the calls on the scanner), so unless they’ve already determined this is not a stolen vehicle, not responding seems unlikely. If it’s really been on the store’s lot for 10 days, though, it would be up to the store to report it and get it towed.

Sorry, comment time is over.
