WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Prime time for car prowling

With holiday-shopping season almost wrapped up, it’s prime time for car prowling – as two reader reports remind us:

*Misti reports that around 9:30 am in the QFC/Petco garage in The Junction, she startled, and possibly thwarted three men who appeared to be casing the car next to hers, “looking inside while holding a huge tool (that) looked like it could easily shatter a car window.” She had lingered in her car making a phone call and adds, “Guy right next to my window jumped about 5 feet when he saw me, he said hello then they all walked off quickly.”

*Haile reports, “Man seen for several hours today (ongoing) looking in cars and following delivery trucks on Alki in the 59th/60th and 60th/61st alleys on both sides of Admiral.”

    I found a ransacked package on Stevens in Alki  today, addressed to someone down the street. I dropped it at the door of a small complex where it was addressed, but there was no unit number. Hope they got it, at the very least.

    Do not leave anything at all in unattended vehicles.  That gym bag filled with dirty clothes?  A criminal will assume there is a laptop in there.  These are crimes of opportunity, so don’t give them one.

Sorry, comment time is over.
