WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Car prowlers undeterred by snow

Though the Admiral area saw snow overnight, car prowlers didn’t seem to care. We have two reader reports from that area:

MULTIPLE CARS PROWLED: A texter reports, “There was a string of car prowls on 41st Ave SW, just south of the high school early this am. Several locks were hollowed out.”

SUNGLASSES STOLEN: From Rachael – “My husband;s car was rifled through last night. We live on Ferry Avenue a few doors down from the fire station in North Admiral. He apparently left it unlocked and the only thing they stole was his prescription sunglasses.”

    It also didn’t deter burglars.  For about the third time someone tried to pry open our condo door lock cover.  Not successfully.

     My husband’s truck was rifled through last night as well.  Doesn’t appear that anything was taken, but such a rude awakening.  We are on 42nd a couple of blocks south of West Seattle High School.

    My Ring app lets me know of local incidents.  Recently several things have happened in this same general vicinity.  We are 5 blocks away from the high school.

    I noticed this morning that the gas cap to my truck was stolen and gas door left open. Not sure if someone tried to siphon at some point yesterday evening.. I did check the fuel level and it was to where I remember so I’m not sure what happened. noticed some gas in the street behind where I was parked too. I live in Gatewood.

    We had footsteps in the snow that lead to each of our car doors definitely someone checking for unlocked doors last night. Hinds and 46th. Ours were locked.

Sorry, comment time is over.
