WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Car prowler; building burglar; big police response

Three notes in West Seattle Crime Watch:

CAR PROWLER: From Nancy:

(Monday) morning I found my 2017 Volvo, parked in front of my home, had been broken into.

Sadly, after rifling glove compartment and taking all CDs, they popped the trunk and took all my gifts.

Purchased from Costco … 2 sets of Queen-size sheets in black floral print, a black large Husky-brand tool bag with tools, 3 boxes of solar yard lights, and a set of garden gloves

I’m just sick about this. Last time the whole car was stolen & recovered in Everett full of drug paraphernalia.

If you find any items dumped in your neighborhood that resemble what Nancy mentioned, let us know and we’ll connect you.

BUILDING BURGLAR: Two Harbor Avenue residents said the person in the security image below (first shown here in November) has struck again. Carolyn wrote the accompanying report:

This naughty boy has broken into two neighboring condo buildings on Harbor Ave (Seacrest Park area) in the past month. The first brake in was in mid-November (where he wore no mask, thanks dummy!). The latest break-in was just last week. This time he wore a mask, however, the glasses, nose, jacket and there is some facial hair visible in the photo, has us believing it is the same perp. He is also believed to be the same person that pulled a gun on a fellow when caught acting suspiciously in an alley behind a fellow’s house on 35th (editor’s note: see this report).

Please keep an eye out for this person! Call SPD if you see him. Not even a lump of coal for you, this Christmas, you bad, bad boy!

BIG POLICE RESPONSE: Got a question this afternoon about a sizable mid-morning police response near 37th/Donovan in Upper Fauntleroy, We hadn’t heard anything at the time, so we asked SPD; a domestic-violence incident involving a handgun, we were told, ending in arrest. (No one was shot, though.)

    I sure hope the creeper burglar is caught because there is a special room waiting for him at a special inn downtown with lovely bars and clanging doors to perk up his holiday spirit.

    Joking about theft and those who commit theft is another absolute jaw-dropping peculiarity about the Northwest. There is a time and place to try out your stand-up comedy routine, but this is not one of them. Good grief, grow up.

    UPDATE: we now have a SPD case number to refer to if you see the ‘building burglar’. It is case #2021-923675. Thank you.

    Talk about the grinch that stole Christmas! What a shame this goes on.

    Everybody just keep making excuses for these criminals. More police and harsher prison sentences as opposed to the constant slap on the wrist. It’s laughable at this point. We are NOT safe anymore. Our families are NOT safe anymore.

    That person looks exactly like my old room mate. I know fir a fact that he was running around with a bad crowd. I seen it first hand.    If anyone sees the guy again or if video can be retrieved….pay attention to the way this person walks. It will be noticeable and is incorrectable since birth. This person stole the extra key to my  car  and helped a someone else steal my car in 2020. It is possible it might be another person. Though I think id bet my car on it looks like him.Happy hunting.  Good luck and happy hunting.
