WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 4 thefts – white Silverado pickup (update: found), orange bicycle, catalytic converter, clothing

Four reader reports about thefts:

STOLEN PICKUP: That’s Joanne‘s white 1999 Chevy Silverado pickup with white rack over the bed, “stolen between 5:07 pm January 31 and 7:00 am February 1 from in front of our house near Madison Middle School. WA plate C01899A. Let us know if you see it, please.” And call 911. (UPDATE: Found.)

STOLEN BICYCLE: The photo and report are from Jeffrey:

Between Saturday night and 10 am 1/29/22 Sunday my Gary Fischer “Marin” mountain bike was stolen from my back yard, then walked out thru my neighbor’s yard. It was a well-used, XL frame, and would be hard to ride for anyone less than 6′ tall. It is orange, with stickers on it, and a custom seat.

STOLEN CATALYTIC CONVERTER: Brittany reports, “On Friday at the old Roxhill elementary school building across from the 76 and the Safeway on Roxbury, my catalytic converter was stolen from my Kia Soul, right in the parking lot at my school I work at.”

STOLEN CLOTHING: Drew reports that a box of “inventory from my new business venture” was stolen in a car break-in outside his home in Gatewood last Friday – a box unintentionally left in the car. In the box, about $2,500 worth of apparel, which he describes as “beach volleyball clothing (that) we just recently started selling online, so no one in the Seattle area has the clothing except for me (yet!). … Every piece of clothing has a “V” (for Voller) logo … The V logo on the clothing is in gold.” You can see here what the clothing looks like – the stolen items were shorts and T-shirts.

    As I’ve said in previous posts about stolen bikes, check out the chop shop next to west seattle health club.

      If i convinced the rv owner to say yes to the idea, would you be willing to take a look at the “chop shop” for these stolen bikes that you claim are all in the pile? And when you dont find any would you post an apology on here? Because the guy that lives there 1. Is a really nice guy that doesnt deserve your accusations by false assumptions 2.is not in very good physical shape to b some super all time bike theif. 3. Has from what i know of paid for these bikes himself because he has a obviouse hoarding problem and 95 percent of these bikes are complete garbage and unridable but refuses to get rid of them. Seriously all but maybe 3 of them sombody couldnt pay me to take. So i very seriosly doubt your weekly accusations against this man hold much merit and i also encourage anybody to go check for your bikes there and talk to the man before just heading to make posts on the internet to talk down about people that you see as lesser then you when you have no proof of anything.

        Totally agree it’s like saying all homeless are criminals which I’ve seen before also.

    I wake up and leave for work at 4 am I live near 44th and Charlestown. When I was headed out the door yesterday morning this truck was driving as close to the parked cars as possible checking door handles to see if the doors were unlocked .

Sorry, comment time is over.
