West Seattle Crime Watch: Smashed windows; found – likely stolen – items; Junction’s new Block Watch

Three notes this afternoon:

SMASHED WINDOWS: That’s one of two cars we spotted with broken windows in the Alki area after a tip this morning. Haven’t heard directly from any victims so we don’t know whether these were break-ins or vandalism.

FOUND ITEMS: William found items behind his apartment building in the 3900 block of California SW, dumped and likely stolen, and would like to get them back to their owner(s):

While walking my pooch this morning I found several items that look like they were stolen from someone’s car.

There are two bins, and one fairly nice bag. I am sure that the owner of these items probably wants them returned. Maybe the owner can email me at dempsey.w (at) hotmail (dot) com and describe the items?

JUNCTION BUSINESS BLOCK WATCH: While passing through The Junction on Thursday, we spotted police on foot patrol and tweeted the photo:

Today, SPD Blotter has just published the news that The Junction has become the first business district in the city to launch a Business Block Watch.

    Does anyone have surveillance footage between 59th and 61st near Alki? I’d like to put a stop to the vandalism.

      Jared – I am on 61st close to Admiral and have cameras in the front yard and also in my alley.

    I have concerns about the part of the union contract that forbids prosecution unless malice can be proven. Am I reading that right?

    Business blockwatch is a great idea. I’m hoping that the SPD foot patrol would wander south toward the Rapid Ride stop outside of Easy Street/Key Bank, and also the west side of the 7-11. There have been a number of new drunken, belligerent miscreants lingering in both areas making walks with the dog and walks from the bus less than pleasant as of late.

Sorry, comment time is over.
