WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen Subaru; car prowls

Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports:

STOLEN SUBARU: Via text: “My vehicle was stolen last night at 4550 38th SW in front of Link apartments. 1999 Subaru Outback sport.” Plate is shown in the photo; call 911 if you see it.

CAR PROWLS: From Taylor via email: “My partner has experienced two car prowls in the last month!! One (Monday) morning and one two weeks ago. Watch out, 35th & Cambridge area. We blame it on the increase in traffic and of course the economic shortage in the area. Keep an eye out, people, and make sure your floodlights are turned on with fresh bulbs.”

    Time for everyone to put in motion sensor security lights and harden up the car for thievery.  Perhaps an ignition/fuel cutoff switch so they cannot be driven away. Every night this is happening.

      Especially if it’s a 1990’s Honda or Subaru. These apparently are very easy to steal, or at least, the most popular for stealing around here.

    I just saw similar Subaru to this one on Marginal st going south toward Highland ave. it was on the right side, right when you pass the 5 way intersection, parked by the Global Diving and Salvage building. I’m not sure if it’s the same car, I didn’t have a chance to check the license plate but it’s worth checking.

    This is my car missing. It has tinted windows all around and on the back windows has two white decal stickers. One is of a lion left side window, a WSU Cougar outline sticker; right side window. Vehicle is still gone. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
