West Seattle Crime Watch: Ford Escape, Honda Express, both blue, both stolen

Two thefts in West Seattle Crime Watch:

STOLEN CAR: From Michele:

My blue 2008 Ford Escape was stolen in the wee hours of the morning 8/26 from on the street in front of my home in West Seattle (Westwood area) and I would really like it back! License AGW4639, with a bumper sticker “I’m proud of my Eagle Scouts” on the back window and license plate frame “University of Washington Alumni.” They have a half tank of gas so hopefully will not go too far!

Call 911 if you see it.

STOLEN MOPED: From Joshua:

On Thursday 8/23, my 1980 Honda Express 50 moped was stolen. It was parked on the west side of Harbor Ave SW in front of Moonbeam Coffee shop, directly across the street from the Seacrest ferry dock. The moped was stolen between approximately 6:15am and 2:00pm. The moped is light blue with a brown and white seat cover, though the seat cover is removable and the original seat underneath is black and white. It has a Washington state collectors vehicle license plate, number 441X. This case is being investigated by the Seattle police department as a felony and the report number is #18-316024. If anyone finds the moped or witnessed the theft, please contact the Seattle police department using the emergency 911 line and reference the police report number.

This moped was a gift from my now deceased grandfather and has a lot of sentimental value for our family. We appreciate your help in finding our missing vehicle.

    While I was on a bike ride a few days ago I saw a huge collection of bicycles and motorized scooters behind the Rainier Brewery complex on Airport Way. This is likely a chop shop for stolen bicycles and scooters. I didn’t get in for a close inspection. You might check there for your moped. There are other chop shops and encampments full of stolen bicycles scattered around the city. There’s a Facebook group dedicated to tracking stolen bicycles and reuniting them with their owners. “PNW Lost/Stolen Bikes”. People may have ideas on where to find your moped or connect you with another group.

    It sure seems like there are a lot of vehicle thefts in West Seattle. Is this the norm all around Seattle and in a city of this size or are we a destination for this kind of activity?

    Inexcusable!  Why doesn’t our Mayor and City Council focus on crime prevention?  A West Seattle woman reported her black BMW was stolen from in front of her home just a couple of days ago.  An unsafe city and our local government does nothing about it.

      If you choose to leave your personal property unattended in public overnight, how is that the fault of the mayor or city council? Or is it just that you think that the already outrageous handouts for private vehicle ownership should include covering your negligence?

        The mayor and city council are more concerned with making statements (wells fargo, etc.) than confronting the problems we have with crime. I suppose that you would consider yourself negligent if you went out of town overnight and your residence was burglarized during your absence.

Sorry, comment time is over.
