WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen red/gray Civic (found)

Here’s a distinctively painted stolen car to look for. The report and photo are from Yvette:

ORIGINAL REPORT: Our car was stolen. We discovered it missing today, Tuesday, February 9, from the parking lot of the apartment building we live in in North Delridge. We have reason to believe it was stolen overnight. It is a 1991 Honda Civic 3-door. The original color is red, but the roof has been painted gray, as has the front, and there are multi-colored squares stenciled onto the hood and the sides. License plate is: 756-ZOQ.

If you see it, call 911.

ADDED WEDNESDAY NIGHT: A WSB reader found it on Puget Ridge.

    What kind of moron would steal that? That will be able to be spotted from the space station.

      Steve you already answered your own question… a moron. People who steal from others are morons!

    Did they say where in North Delridge neighborhood it happened?

  • Jake February 10, 2021 (12:07 pm)

    Someone in my neighborhood email group says they saw this car parked on 17th.

    I can’t confirm this personally, but someone on our neighborhood listserv said this car is parked at 17th and Myrtle.

      I got a note from someone who said that and besides asking them to please notify police, I emailed Yvette, who also has contacted police and is en route to look. Thanks!

        … and it’s theirs. Reunion in progress. Thanks, everyone, for looking out – that’s why we publish reader reports like this, not just to let people know it happened. Police use automated license plate readers to detect stolen cars but they’re certainly not going to be driving every street in West Seattle in the course of a day, so watchful residents help tremendously – TR

     Sadly, whoever stole it did some damage, as well as making a truly sloppy stab at partially repainting it….šŸ¤¬

Sorry, comment time is over.
