West Seattle Crime Watch: Admiral arrest; Youngstown theft

Two notes in West Seattle Crime Watch this afternoon:

ADMIRAL ARREST: Multiple inquiries about an arrest near 45th SW/SW Stevens this morning. We don’t have incident details but the Southwest Precinct says it started with a burglary attempt and ended with a suspect being taken into custody. (added) Here are the details via SPD Blotter:

Police took a man into custody after a woman called 911 to report someone was trying to break into her West Seattle home.

A woman called 911 at 8 a.m. Tuesday to report an unknown man had attempted to enter into her home in the 3000 block of 45th Avenue Southwest.

While officers were responding to the address, the woman updated dispatchers and told them the suspect had run down a nearby alley. Officers converged on the address and following a brief foot pursuit, took the 25-year-old suspect into custody.

Officers later booked the suspect into King County Jail for investigation of burglary.

YOUNGSTOWN THEFT: From a reader:

I captured this propane thief on video around noon (Monday). Hoping you can post in case anyone recognizes her. This is the third tank I’ve had stolen in the last year.

    They are stealing the propane for the RV encampment by the steel mill. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be sure to hide my BBQ better.

      Exactly Youngstown. I know that woman. She lives in one of those RV’s down there. 100% I just don’t know which one.

    Unbelievable they just take it like they are entitled.  Meanwhile the owner was probably at work

      Poverty and desperation do crazy things to people. This isn’t an excuse AT ALL, but I doubt entitlement has anything to do with it.

Sorry, comment time is over.
