    Wtf…is with these car prowlers and burglars?!  Perhaps this is not new and mostly nothing, but lately, on a daily basis, I notice several vehicles slow-driving on residential streets, or randomly pulling over and hanging out for 30 seconds before continuing on.Sharing below a piece of communication from the local Crime Prevention Branch, SPD:

    • Don’t leave valuables in close proximity of a window
    • Answer the door; let people know you are home. “Answering” the door does not mean “opening” the door. Always know who is on the other side of your door before you open it, even if you are expecting someone
    • While home, take moments to go outside and put eyes on the street; check out what’s happening on the street
    • When you see neighbors out and about, wave and say hi.  When you see people you don’t know out and about on your street, wave and say hi.  Send the message that you are a neighborhood that cares and that you are paying attention.

    Hope you find your van, sir.

      These folks are delivery drivers. They’re looking for the right house and pulling over to look at their phones without blocking traffic.Especially for delivery drivers that are Black, this kind of suspicion could lead to the police being called.

        Thank you, didn’t know they are delivery drivers.

    Can you please share when the van was stolen?

    Yesterday at 5am our neighbors witnessed a white van idling near their family vehicle. Someone had broken into the vehicle and was riffling through their belongings. When the culprits saw our neighbors approaching they quickly left. 38th AVE SW & Raymond.

      Neighbor says: The rear windows were glass but painted white (whitewash style).

Sorry, comment time is over.
