CRIME WATCH: Stolen cargo e-bike; abandoned bicycle; hit-run driver leaves stolen car behind

Two bicycles start this Crime Watch report, one stolen, one abandoned and likely stolen (its owner might not even know it’s gone yet):


This was taken from our garage (Camp Long area) last night and we are devastated! I am trying to spread the word far and wide. This is a beloved family bike and daily mode of transportation.

RadWagon Cargo E-Bike
Red Child Yepp seat
Large front basket
caboose on back
2019 model
registered on Bike Index and police report filed


At approximately 6:50 this morning, two individuals went traipsing through our front yard with a bicycle which they proceeded to abandon in our driveway. We are located at 49th and Stevens. I have attached a picture of the bike and video captured by our security camera.

If you recognize the bike, please let us know and we will connect you.

And one more reader report:


A Honda Civic sped into the traffic circle at our corner at approx. 5:35 am today. Driver fled the scene on foot. Thank you to SPD for their quick response and for sharing that the vehicle had been reported stolen from the Lynnwood area.

    Radwagon…. that sure needs to come back to you

    The radwagen costs more than a used car, the thief needs to be caught and held accountable.

    Two (injured) people fled the scene of the crashed Honda at 46th and Stevens at 6:35 am this morning—maybe they’re the same two who ditched the bike at 49th and Stevens at 6:50 am?  I’m sure they need medical care.

    I just looked at the video, they’re not the two people who fled the red Honda.

    I keep my bicycle in the dining room of my house and the two in the basement I lock them to one another, should lock the one in the dining room come to think of it. I go so far as to lock my bicycle when I mount it on the bus rack when taking metro. Just sharing some helpful info, lockup your bicycle.

      Great idea. My lock is too cumbersome to lock it on the bus carrier every time. What kind of lock do you have?

    We also live near 49th and Stevens and have video of the second bike going through our yard but the video is poor quality. Will share with authorities if it is needed. Hope the owner found soon.

    Tip for other e-bike owners as paranoid as me: keep your battery inside the house and double lock your bike in your garage to something sturdy, like a heavy duty shelving unit. Sad that such precautions are necessary and I feel for the victims here – very sad to invest a lot of effort into fitting a bike to your family’s needs only for someone to steal it. Hope it turns up.

Sorry, comment time is over.
