WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Package-stealing condo burglars

Brian lives at a condo building on Avalon Way that was broken into early today – not the first break-in, he says. He forwarded the message sent to residents by their homeowner association’s president, with photos including the ones shown below with part of the message:

One of our residents was walking his dog and came across a bunch of packages in the brush. He looked at them and realized they belonged to residents of Luna Court. …

On Saturday, July 9, about 2:23 AM, two people gained access to the front of the building through the front door. Marks on the Door King System postal lock appear to have been made with a pair of pliers.

Packages were taken.

I reviewed the security camera footage for the camera outside the front door and was able to copy some frames of the thieves. I filed a report with the Seattle Police. … SPD report Number. 22-176794

    Our neighborhood has been dealing with a known mail thief for over a year and the police will not act. Please call the USPS Federal Mail Fraud Unit at 1-877-876-2455

      Thanks for the tip. I also had no luck with the police helping with the Delridge mail thief. Found it very funny that they asked for our help “finding” him, after letting him go repeatedly. When my neighbor reported him taking things from my buildings mailboxes they came and spoke with him at the bus stop, and let him leave with my package. He also made my elderly mom cry after smashing open her (and many other) new fancy mailbox

    I walked the pedestrian overpass today and there are addresses from California Avenue and packages labeled “documents from Japan.”  

Sorry, comment time is over.
