WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: School-district work truck stolen

If you happen to see a pickup truck with a Seattle Public Schools logo – take a closer look, because it might be the truck Derek has reported as stolen:

On the morning of 10-17-2019 between 4-7 AM, my work truck was stolen from the field of the Southwest Athletic Complex. The truck is a white late 1990s to early 2000s Chevy two-door with a Seattle School district logo and #319 on the back; the windshield is also smashed and the license plate number is 56489C.

Thanks all for your help in returning our work truck.

As always, police advise calling 911 ASAP if you find/see a stolen vehicle.

    I think they did the district a favor.   Those vehicles are in such bad shape due to missing maintenance schedules and their age that they would be better off getting insurance money from the theft.   I had to audit SPS assets and know a little about this.

    Wow @WSEA. This was a theft

    If the windshield was “smashed” before the theft then it was a ticketable offense to drive it.  While it was a theft and the thief should go to jail(WON’T HAPPEN) If WSEA is correct then SPS is commiting a bigger crime. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
