WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Catalytic-converter theft; window damage

Two reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch:


I had my catalytic converter stolen off my 2007 Prius while it was in the driveway. I live up on 44th Ave. SW, just up the hill from Endolyne Joe’s. I did file a police reportl just wanted to get the word out for other people in the area to check their vehicles and keep a sharp eye out

WINDOW DAMAGE AND HARASSMENT: This happened in The Junction today, a reader reports:

At 9:50 am this morning, a very angry woman was seen throwing rocks at the windows of the Junction 47 apartments, some of which also hit Bishops Barbershop. The incident only lasted a few minutes, and she was seen heading across the street. The police were called by myself and a few others.

At 10:10 am the woman entered Bishops Barbershop and had a small confrontation with the receptionist, and refused to leave. The police were called again, but she left before they arrived, heading down 42nd Ave towards Alaska st.

I’ve attached a picture of the woman responsible.

Police incident # is 21-230289.

    Sorry to hear John. Some people just suck. You might consider an after  market replacement, (ebay, whatever) they’ll never touch you again, they contain less of the precious metals.When my neighbor replaced his with the OEM part, they came back and got him again.

      Well what I’m hearing from my mechanic is that I may not be able to get an OEM one because there’s a national shortage so I’ll have to go with some third-party cheapo. The car is 14 years old and I inherited it from my grandma I think I’m actually just going to trade it in while it has some decent value left

    Technically a crime, but really just a minor nuisance (unless flying embers land in one of the dry areas covered in Himalayan blackberry thickets): People are lighting large bonfires on Alki again, if the clouds of smoke a couple of miles away are any indication.
    King County did indeed suspend the stage-2 absolute burn ban, but stage 1 remains in effect. Small fires are allowed under narrow conditions, with an important one being “no more than three feet wide”.

    I wonder if she is also responsible for the two broken windows at Flying Apron on California in Alaska Junction

    Sorry but all this talk about ‘keeping an eye on your car’ isn’t cutting it (as  this wave of cat thefts is at full boil these days and will continue).  You have to actually put a barrier between the dirt bag thief and the cat.  But do something before your cat is sawed off this week.

Sorry, comment time is over.
