West Seattle Crime Watch: Packages, and tools, taken

Three West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports:


Police report # is 19-036748.


USPS delivered a package to my house at 15th and Elmgrove at 10:19 a.m. When I arrived home at 6:30 p.m., I couldn’t find it anywhere. It contained a used women’s leather jacket I bought on Poshmark. Long shot, but if anyone sees a Madewell leather jacket (size M) in cabernet listed online, let me know (they don’t make the color any more).

TRESPASSING/BURGLARY/BREAK-IN ATTEMPTS: Ashley forwarded photos from her condo building’s security cameras last Wednesday night/Thursday morning, catching “3 groups of trespassers on our property” overnight, at which time tools were stolen from a work shack on site. Also stolen: An orange work vest branded with the on-site company’s name, Tatley-Grund. Ashley sent screen grabs – see them here, here, here, here, here, and here. Police report # is 19-031061.

    re: package theft, we’ve had multiple instances in the past year where it’s been either:(a) delivered to the wrong address [in one case, they dropped the entire neighborhood’s packages off at one address](b) reported as delivered online (with a time and note on how it was delivered) but they actually delivered by the carrier the next day Based on that very limited evidence, I certainly wouldn’t announce something as possibly stolen without evidence unless it had been 2 days, and seems a bit premature to say such.

Sorry, comment time is over.
