WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Hit-and-run; catalytic-converter theft

Two car crimes in West Seattle Crime Watch this afternoon:

HIT-AND-RUN DRIVER SOUGHT: From Patrick in The Junction:

Our Dodge Charger was totaled by a hit-run vehicle at 12:04 am on Oct 12th on SW Oregon between 42nd SW and California SW.

The vehicle slammed into the driver-side rear bumper, riding up onto the vehicle with the Jeep at an approx. 25-degree angle before backing off our vehicle and sideswiping it before leaving the area quickly, turning south on 42nd SW and finding our rear quarter panel at the intersection of 42nd SW and SW Edmunds.

We have obtained video of the crash but cannot make out the license #. This is now the second hit and run we’ve had to suffer in less than a year; my GF and I are pissed. We want desperately to find this driver and or vehicle responsible and ask if you can possibly put this out there for folks to keep an eye out.

If you have any information, the SPD incident # is 21-270330.


Our catalytic converter was stolen on 10/12/2021 at 7:46 am. It was captured by camera, see attached photo.

There was one driver, and a passenger who got out and quickly stole the converter. This happened in Fauntleroy just south of Lincoln Park. A police report was filed.

The SPD incident # IS 21-918668.

    What color was the Jeep?

      According to what I’ve seen from a post on Facebook, it was a newer red Jeep Wrangler with a hard top.

        They have video of the crash, they said, so they know what the vehicle looked like.

          You are correct. Just to clarify- The description I gave above was noted on fb by the vehicle owner/victim of the hit and run.

    In the early morning hour of Wednesday October 13th, an attempt was made by some losers to cut the Catalytic Converter off my vehicle. They did not succeed. However, on Friday evening I discovered two CC’’s they did cut free, steal, and then cast-off in the right-of-way of 4750-4790 Cottage Place SW near SW Edmunds Street.So…if you have been victimized, go have a look.

Sorry, comment time is over.
