WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen yellow Nissan Juke

Lura‘s yellow 2015 Nissan Juke was stolen in the Beach Drive area overnight: “The key fob was accidentally left in the car – we had traded who was driving the car but the key didn’t get handed off. So this may have been purely opportunistic – someone checking doors, finding it unlocked, pressing the “START” button. Police report made. License AXH4237.” The car looks like this stock photo. Call 911 if you see it.

    So sorry Lura, I hope it’s already been recovered – and with minimal damage.sue

    Thank you Sue. No recovery so far. Does anyone know what percentage of stolen cars are recovered?

      I’m only speaking from experience.  My car was stolen and recovered with 2 weeks.  Mine was a total loss.  I had to pay for impound and to get rid of it.  My situation is different than yours, because it was used for parts.  They took everything, even the sun visors!  My car was found in Des Moines and was impounded because it was left on a bike lane.  Wishing you the best and a speedy recovery.

    So sorry to hear this Lura! I also have a Juke and can’t tell you the number of times I’ve accidentally left the key fob in the car overnight and have thanked my lucky stars the car hasn’t been stolen. I walk Beach Drive daily and your little yellow Juke always made me smile. Hoping it gets found with minimal damage. So tired of these car prowlers and thieves in our neighborhood.

Sorry, comment time is over.
