WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Burglar steals customized three-wheel hand-operated bike

The report and photos are from Tomba, who :

Our condo garage gate was broken into last night 11/23 at 3:00 am. ‘

Our security camera recorded the burglar checking out the gate at midnight, he arrived on a bike, returned at 3:00 am on foot with tools, broke into the gate, then cut the security cable on the Hand Trike and left at 3:15 am, riding the hand trike south on Harbor Ave.

This is a Top End Force Three Hand Trike, black with red lettering, customized for a young man that uses a wheelchair full time. This is not easily replaced. I would think this will be very hard for the burglar to sell.

Maybe someone in our West Seattle neighborhood has seen this burglar or this hand trike.

We’ve requested the report number. (Update: It’s 21-921955.) Meantime, if you find the trike, let us know and we’ll connect you.

    So sorry this adaptive cycle has been stolen.  What horrible people to be out casing people’s homes and belongings, only to return later to steal. Shame on you!

    This slime ball is pathetic, stealing from a physically challenged person is unconscionable!

    I guess you need a pitbull, a 120 db siren and a special electro shock device to keep these jerks off your property.  Ugh

    This is heartbreaking.   Very  sorry for your loss and  I hope this will be recovered.   I know blog readers will be on the lookout.

    Dear Jerks:…. Just because you ‘can’ steal, doesn’t mean you ‘should’. So tiresome all this thievery. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
