Two reports in West Seattle Crime Watch tonight:
CAR THEFT/BURGLARY FOLLOWUP: Last year, we reported on what happened to Amy – first, her car was stolen, then, hours later, her house was broken into while she and her daughter were asleep. Security video and a reader tip led to the identification of a suspect, who was subsequently caught hundreds of miles away. We reported in December that Nevada authorities had worked out a plea bargain with 28-year-old Jordan J. Edmonds. Amy emailed today with this followup:
Jordan Edmonds was sentenced today in NV for the following crimes there: felon with a firearm and eluding police. He fled WA state three weeks after our home invasion in November, and was caught after taking officers on a 100-mile car chase at 120 miles/hour in the NV desert. He has been in jail since the end of November and was sentenced today in Mineral County, NV for the NV charges.
His sentence is a minimum of 29 months and a maximum of 72 months. He will be extradited to WA after serving time in NV, and then he will be tried for our invasion + three other crimes he was wanted on.
Jordan apologized to me and my daughter in court, and I told him I forgave him as a human.
It was the community at the WS blog that got him identified and ultimately led to his capture. Thank you, Tracy and the WS community!
The photo is from the Department of Corrections, taken while Edmonds was in DOC custody in 2018. As we reported in December, the other cases in which he was charged before Amy’s break-in involved residential burglary and unlawful gun possession.
KNOW WHO LOST THIS WHEEL COVER? It was left behind in the hit-run Sandra emailed to report:
I am reaching out to report a hit and run that occurred at the intersection of Fauntleroy and Oregon on Wednesday evening (the 23rd of March) at 8:15 PM. My sister was turning left onto Fauntleroy from Oregon on a green light when a silver Toyota sedan, possibly an early 2000’s model, driving south on Fauntleroy, ran the red light and crashed into her, causing severe damage to the front passenger side of her car. The driver did not stop. The driver was a white male with a long beard, wearing what looked like a work shirt or jacket. His Toyota likely has extensive damage along the passenger side, and is missing one of the wheel covers. If anyone in the area happened to witness the incident or has any information about the other driver involved, please contact SPD and reference incident number 22-072678.
