WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen silver Camry; two under-the-car thefts; intruder arrest

In West Seattle Crime Watch:

STOLEN CAMRY: Keep watch for Mary Jane‘s silver 4-door 1987 Toyota Camry, stolen late last night or early this morning near Fauntleroy/Monroe, across from Lincoln Park. License plate BSG2643. Call 911 if you see it.


Heads up to folks in North Delridge:

Sometime between 2 am and 4 am on 12/19/2020, someone in a dark colored SUV was pulled up close to my Prius in front of my residence near the Dragonfly Pavilion. A friend woke up to the sound of some sort of pneumatic tool and yelled at them out the window. They crouched down, got back in their car and took off. Unfortunately, my friend wasn’t able to see anything identifiable about the person or vehicle. By the sound of my car when I turn it on, I assume they got away with my catalytic converter and/or muffler but I have to have it looked at to know for sure.

UNDER-THE-CAR THEFT #2: This summary is from SPD’s Significant Incident Reports file:

On 12-18-2020 at 0355 hours, a male was inside his house sleeping located at the 9000 BLK of 3 Ave SW. The victim heard a loud noise outside his window. The victim saw that a male was under his truck cutting something, and there was a second male standing up being the lookout. The victim saw the suspects get in a green small van, and one of the suspects shot a round in the air. The suspects drove away Southbound on 3 Ave SW. The suspects took the muffler from the victim’s vehicle. Officers checked the area for the suspects and evidence, but nothing was located. King County was notified about the suspect’s vehicle.

INTRUDER ARRESTED: Also from the Significant Incident Reports:

On 12-17-2020 at 1723 hours, officers responded to a burglary in the 6300 block of 34 AV SW. The suspect, who does not live at this apartment building, made entry via the south stairwell door and then proceeded to the 2nd floor. Once on the 2nd floor, the suspect forcibly kicked in the victim’s front door after she refused to let him in and then entered the apartment. Suspect was still inside the victim’s apartment when officers arrived on scene. Suspect was arrested and booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary without incident.

    Time to rise up. Let our politicians know we are TIRED and it’s THEIR JOB to make catching and convicting criminals their TOP priority!!!

    Any update on the home invasion? If you kick in a door to gain entry while someone is in the residence they only charge you with Burglary? Or is booking different than charging? It seems like this should have warranted something far more stringent for a forcible entry? Its unnerving how emboldened the crooks have become around here. Hope the woman is ok!

      Being arrested for investigation of a certain category of crime is not the same thing as being charged. The latter may follow days, weeks, or months from the former, depending on the evidence they have, among other factors. We don’t have the suspect’s name, though, so I have no way of checking on their status, so far.

Sorry, comment time is over.
