WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen red Blazer (update: found); car prowlers; window broken

Three reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch


My 1999 Chevy S-10 Blazer red was stolen from the 5000 block of 41st Ave SW some time between 12:30 AM and 7:30 AM. License AFY6805. Had ski racks. Some tools inside. Police report has been filed.

Plate # is AFY6805. (UPDATE: Andrew says it’s been found – abandoned, damaged, in the 4800 block of California SW and impounded from there.)

CAR PROWLERS: Michelle says an alert circulated among residents of the Lighthouse building on Alki Point warning of two car prowlers seen in both their lot and the Alki Point Lighthouse public parking lot next to it. They were described only as “two males, both wearing backpacks and both covered up (difficult to identify).”

BROKEN WINDOW: One holdover report from last week. M & G report, “(Last) Sunday night / Monday morning, broken side car window, 38th and Olga, nothing taken and didn’t even open the door ( upper half of shattered glass still in the door. Fell out when I opened it).”

    I saw an older dark colored Honda Accord parked with 3 black males (mid to late 20’s) wearing masks, hoods and gloves at 10:15am on the same block the Blazer was stolen. The men kept staring me down and getting in and out of the car. I then watched them reach into bushes next to where they were parked and pull out a canvas bag which looked to have tools inside. They quickly sped off. Plate number was 1224j3, thats all I could catch. I called 911 to report the suspicious activity but they did not seem to care and told me to call back once they committed a crime.

      I may have seen two of these guys walk out of the Jefferson Square parking lot with unbagged food tucked under their hoodies and head south on 41st. They were clearly suspicious. I’ll keep an eye out for the plate number.

Sorry, comment time is over.
