WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Arbor Heights SWAT response; stolen bicycle

Two more West Seattle Crime Watch notes today:

ARBOR HEIGHTS EARLY-MORNING SWAT RESPONSE: Some questions this morning about a SWAT response in Arbor Heights, near California/100th. The CSI vehicle above was still there when we went by at midmorning but the only officers we found were plainclothes detectives who told us they could not speak with media. So far the only information we have been able to found out is that it involved a warrant from outside the Southwest Precinct.

STOLEN BICYCLE: The photo and report are from Henry:

We noticed our bike was stolen today. It was locked to the staircase and the lock chain was cut open. It’s a pink Specialized Sirrus 2.0. Must have happened in the last few days, we’ve been home and didn’t hear anything.

This happened in the 6600 block of SW Admiral Way and has been reported to police.

    Bravo.  We need to take bike theft more seriously.  I hope the SWAT team is called out for every stolen bicycle response.

      These are two unrelated cases.

      Did you really just put two stories together?

        It’s a crime watch post. The idea of SWAT being called in for a theft (not mid-robbery) is terrifying.

          Again, the SWAT-involved warrant item is NOT RELATED TO the theft item. Two separate things. Our Crime Watch updates often feature multiple unrelated incidents.

    I’m with Skeeter the City wants people to switch to bike riding yet does little to deter bike thieves!  Some e-bikes cost more than a used car.

    I guess people needed an   “&” or “and”  in your heading or we have a few comedians reading the blog! :)

      Ah, the underappreciated semicolon.

Sorry, comment time is over.
