WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Broken windows; abandoned blue Schwinn bike

Two more reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch tonight:


Just wanted to give a heads up to those living in the Highland Park neighborhood, side car windows are being smashed in the area. Myself and a neighbor were hit a few weeks back around 18th and Trenton, but didn’t report because nothing was stolen. This most likely happened late night/early morning.

Learned today a friend who lives around 10th and Portland had their passenger window smashed last night along with 4 or 5 other cars and they have found a ball bearing next to their car. I also saw another unknown car with the same vandalism.

In all cases, as far as I’ve heard and experience nothing was stolen. Unfortunately for all of us we now have a $300 window repair bill.

Please keep vigilant and if anyone has a lead it would be great to share in the comments. Thanks!

Side note, you can report car prowls online even if nothing was stolen (we’ve done it a couple times) – go here..

ABANDONED BIKE: From the dumped-likely-stolen file – James sent the photo:

James says it’s been in an Upper Morgan alley for at least two days. If it’s yours, contact us and we’ll connect you.

    What would be really nice to see is for the perp(s) to get caught and made to reimburse the owners of the damaged vehicles all costs associated with the repair including the owners lost time dealing with the issue!

    I live at 16th and Trenton and was up early (around 5 a.m.) for a run on Monday morning and saw a man walking on Trenton with  large bag. He caught my eye because he was moving from one side of the street to the other. By the time I got out the door he was gone. Maybe someone picked him up on a security camera?

    Same thing happened to us at 18th and Holden 2.5 weeks ago. Window was shot with what looked like a pellet or bb, but nothing was stolen. Please do file a report so that if the person is caught there is documentation and paper trail.

      Agree and I did right after posting this. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
