WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Business burglarized, again

Burglars have struck again at Emerald Water Anglers (4502 45nd SW; WSB sponsor) in The Junction. We went over to find out more after a tip this morning. The EWA team tells us this happened around 5:30 am; they were still checking to see what was missing, but they first missing items they noticed were several Patagonia guide jackets. We’ll add the incident number when we get it.

    Why not add iron bars to the doors? Fixes this problem.

    I wonder if the owners (or their landlords) have considered 3M security films. A clear polymer film can be applied to the inside of the window that holds the glass in place when it shatters. Burglars can still break the glass. But the shattered glass stays in place and requires a lot more time, trouble (and noise) to get through it.  Might be worth considering.

    .. or maybe time for one of those steel security gates (albeit ugly) that the shop owner pulls down over the front once leaving for the night. It’s what I suggested for West Seattle Runners after their recent second break in. (I think it’s what Menashe Jewelers and others have on their fronts at night).

    I hope the resident kitty is  safe

    Again!!  Hopefully, you installed cameras after the first time and the police have faces to start investigating!!  Just like a home robbery they always come back after sufficient time for you to have replace stolen items.

    This is so disappointing. Sorry EWA.

    So sorry for Dave and his whole crew that they have to put up with this crap.

    This really sucks, EWA is such a great group of folks.

    Sillygoose – catching criminals on camera is great, but to make it effective requires the City Attorney to aggressively prosecute thieves and Judges to put the perps behind bars.
