West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen bike & trike; car prowler steals sunglasses

Three West Seattle Crime Watch reports, and an FYI about newly available data:

STOLEN BICYCLE: Thomas reports this bicycle was stolen Tuesday around 4:30 pm from the 3100 block of Alki SW:

He reports a “white (man) in his 20s with blond hair and blue eyes” was seen cutting the lock and stealing the bicycle. It’s been reported to police.

STOLEN TRIKE: This also happened in the Alki area, 3000 block of 61st SW. Autumn‘s purple Schwinn Meridian adult tricycle was stolen from under a cover in her backyard sometime between Friday night and Saturday afternoon last weekend. A police report is also on file in this case.

CAR PROWL: Yma reports a car break-in in Gatewood, 4100 block of SW Portland, overnight, adding: “Not much of value taken – as we didn’t have much in there. If anyone finds some Rx Sunglasses – those would be nice to have back; they won’t be of any value to the scum that took them.”

NEW SPD DATA: We’ve talked about it in comment discussions over the years – many 911 calls for Seattle Police have nothing to do with crime. Now you can see what all those calls are about, and what areas of the city generate what number of calls, via a new SPD “data dashboard.?+: Here’s the SPD Blotter post announcing it.

    It’s just sad & deflating to walk out in the morning to go to work & find your car rifled through. Not much of value to anyone but us. And then – to sit in traffic & realize they took the parking pass- which they can’t use & screws us over for work. (Sigh)

    It was my bike that got stolen, I have seen the kid around riding random bikes from the homeless camp in Sodo to west seattle.

      I’ll gladly go help you look around. Please make sure it’s on Bike Index if you haven’t already.

    I believe it was Saturday early a.m. that I saw this blond guy on a Beach Drive side street off Charlestown, heading south. He was riding a red bike but towing another red bike. I was out walking w/out phone, but I called the police non-emergency line to report what I thought looked suspicious when I got home They said there was nothing they could do, as an hour had elapsed. I saw the same guy in Arbor Heights (106th) on Monday, this time holding some bike tires. Blond, baseball cap, 20-ish.
