From Diane:

My beloved Kia Soul was stolen early Sunday morning from the Seaview area. We reported it to the police. When he got there, he said it was the 7th, yes 7th, call that morning for stolen vehicles. Please keep an eye out for it. It was my most favorite car. It is a 2-plus. It is the weird green of a Kia Soul, but more silver. It had all the bells and whistles. The outside package had a lot of black trimming and “vents” on the front side in front of the doors. It’s the only one I saw with mud guards on the wheel wells. The license plate is BUB2436.

As with all known stolen vehicles, call 911 if you see it.

    How Is this done?   elctronically? or does someone have a generic type key, or screwdriver?

      They drive around the daytime “sniffing” for codes & then return at night.

    So sorry.  Seven vehicles reported stolen just  that morning to SPD. I wish the city would prosecute these criminals.  I am sure you are not in the top 1% and I hope you have the means to get to and from work.  I sincerely your Kia is found!

      The city is not involved in auto-theft prosecution. That’s the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, and they DO prosecute auto-theft cases – we wrote about one just last night. Catching/identifying the thieves is more the challenge. – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
