WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Burglarized while they slept

Catherine is hoping someone in the 31st SW/SW City View area can help solve their burglary:

Our home was broken into last night while we slept sometime between 12:30 and 7 a.m. We live in the Luna Park neighborhood and numerous valuables were taken including heirloom jewelry and all our personal information, purses, wallets, checkbooks, electronics (cell phone, x box, tablets…) and access to all our personal and credit accounts. A bag was left behind from another property or car prowl by the intruder that has been turned over to the police.

Police reports and fingerprints have been taken but we are looking for anyone who may have camera footage or noticed anything between those hours to please contact us or SPD with information. The incident number is 2020-023214.

Burglaries at night, while someone’s home, are far rarer than daytime break-ins.

    Our car was broken into in the same area last night! It was a white vehicle. Pretty sure it was a 1998 Toyota Camry. I live right by Luna as well. 3 individuals. When we turned the corner they jumped into the car and peeled off. Did not contact the police department. I think we scared them away. Just be on the lookout!

      Please do file a police report, even if nothing was taken. You can do it, quickly, online:

      The white car ended up in the carport at our condo building (Alki area) around 1am. 3 boys/men.  Some owners here yelled at them and they jumped into their car parked in the back lot.  Crashed into parked cars here and then the entrance to the elevator on their way out.  Police were called and came by but not sure these guys were caught.

      My car was broken into that night in the same area that night, too! I wasn’t aware of this thread but I had read about it on the next door app.

    How was this person able to get in? Was the door unlocked? Did they notice someone was in the house?

    Very sorry that this happened to you.

    I live in Luna Park Neighborhood and at least two other homes (one on 31st,one on 30th Ave SW) were also burgled same night in a brazen fashion.They may or may not have reported,but this was a blitzkrieg style of burglarizing I wasn’t aware existed.We will be planning a neighborhood meeting on info sharing and some further measures we can take to be safer and more secure

    Does this home have an alarm system? Was the system on during the burglary?

    Same (white sedan) car seen on 31st and Trenton; some guy looking into my sister’s house’s windows. Got spooked and drove off but sounds like this isn’t isolated to one neighborhood. :(

    when our vehicle was stolen from N Admiral it was THREE people as well.  Might look like they are males, but seems one is female.  SERIOUSLY:  REPORT   everything: suspicious behavior included.

Sorry, comment time is over.
