WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen silver Toyota pickup (update: found!)

TUESDAY AFTERNOON: Dan hopes you can help find that truck, stolen today in North Admiral:

2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 Quad Cab
Plate # B28671L
Damage to passenger side, back quarter panel

If you see it, call 911.

WEDNESDAY MORNING: As Dan mentioned in comments, his truck was found in Edmunds. He told us via email: “I got a call from the Edmonds police around 2:15 am this morning to say that they’d found my truck! Nancy and I drove up and got it at a hotel on 99 where they’d, by chance on a routine drive=through observed a guy get out of it and go into the hotel. They ran the plate, found out it was stolen, watched the video footage of the suspect paying for a room and promptly arrested him in that room. The truck is dirty and stinky from cigarette and meth smoke, but will be detailed today.”

    That sucks, sorry to hear.  Hopefully will be found soon and without additional damage.

     Huge props and thank yous to the Edmunds Police Department for their training, sleuthing and fearlessness as they found my truck and arrested the suspect at 2:15am today. Off the the detail shop for some deep cleaning and life will go on. Whew!

    If you drove it to the detail shop make sure  you-and your clothes aren’t contaminated!

      YES as Humble stated throw your clothes into the washer and shoes use some kind of cleaner on them too!

    Thanks for the heads up regarding the contamination. I’d been instructed by the officers at the scene as well and huge props to Auto Salon at Leschi for some incredible work deep cleaning the entire vehicle. Give Jeff and his business a try. You will not be disappointed!
