WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 2 cases of multiple car prowls

In West Seattle Crime Watch – two parking lots hit by multiple car prowls:

WEST SEATTLE HIGH SCHOOL: This is from a case bulletin circulated by Southwest Precinct police:

On 5/20/2021, the above-pictured suspects broke out the passenger window of the victim’s parked vehicle at West Seattle HS (3000 California Ave SW). The suspects took the victim’s wallet, which contained the victim’s driver’s license, cards, and a check for $20k. The suspects were caught on cell phone camera prowling multiple vehicles in the parking lot. Upon realizing that they were being filmed, they fled the parking lot in suspect vehicles 1 and 2. There appeared to be a third suspect in the driver’s seat of suspect vehicle 2.

If you are aware of any other incidents involving these suspects or vehicles, or are able to identify either suspect, please email lauren.laumbattus@seattle.gov

The second vehicle, not shown, was a black 2008 Pontiac G8, plate starting with BLU.


That’s one of three cars they reported Friday were hit by car prowlers in the complex (2201 SW Holden).
