Crime Watch, stolen-car edition: Reunion, plus 2 more thefts

Three Crime Watch reports related to auto theft – first, an update:

REUNION: We published Patsy‘s stolen-car report here yesterday. Today, reader Kathy spotted it, and now Patsy has it back.


Before midnight on October 27th, 1994 Honda del Sol was stolen. Color: blue. Address: intersection of 17th and Barton.

Plate AXH4129. Call 911 if you see it, or this one:

STOLEN BLACK HONDA CIVIC: From Leah in South Park:

My car was stolen sometime between 7:00 pm Friday and 1:00 pm Saturday from S Donovan St and 8th ave S.

Black 98 Honda Civic hatchback, license plate Washington ANB1384. Has bicycling bumper sticker on the back, hail-damage dings all over the body. Attached is a pic of the car from a few years ago.

I’ve reported to SPD (case # 18-402534). The car has been stolen previously from this same area twice before; I had a Club on the steering wheel… Don’t have any idea who could be doing this, but it makes me sad for the neighborhood. If anyone has any info, I would really appreciate it.

    Leah: Consider getting a brake lock. It goes over the foot brake and locks down the brake so brakes cannot be used. It might deter the thieves. We got ours at the locksmith place near California & Admiral. We got it a while back, so do not know if they still have or not

    Leah: If you can get a car alarm installed, that would be terrific. Thieves don’t want to risk the noise of an alarm and are technically skilled enough nowadays to either cut the club or replace the steering wheel.

    A good car alarm kills the ignition so the car cannot be driven.

Sorry, comment time is over.
