WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Two thefts

Two reader reports about thefts:

THIEVES ON WHEELS: Kevin was loading his car in the 3800 block of 34th SW around 4 am today, going back and forth to his house, when he looked up to see two people on what he described as “a moped” by his car, then speeding off with three bags, including one that contained his wallet, passport, computer, and cash, He jumped in his car and tried to follow then but they turned around at 35th and Avalon and got away. No description, he says, other than that “the guy on the back had one of those reflective vests.” He did get two of his bags back – tossed by the thieves during their getaway – but not the one with the valuables. If you have any information, the SPD incident # is 2022-166046.

BUSINESS THEFT:Crossfit Loft sent this video of a thief at their business today:

They say he stole sunglasses and sweatshirts, and was last seen running southbound on California. They believe he’s hit other local businesses too. The SPD incident # is 2022-168132.

    So, here’s a coincidence. Those two people broke into my car just before 4am on 48th and Hanford (one of them was a female) AND that same guy has been into my store, Alair Gift Shop, multiple times this week, including yesterday. He was also going around to places with for rent signs trying to figure out which buildings and office spaces are vacant.

    I”m so grateful that West Seattle Blog is helping small businesses hold thieves accountable. I think the mayor has started doing a great job to clean up the city, but here is still a lot of work to be done. Thank you West Seattle Blog for exposing the people who continue to cause trouble in our community. I hope he gets arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    He’s around the age of 35-36. Stands about 5 foot 8. Dyed blonde hair. Somewhat clean dressed. He has a system down, walks into businesses where they help you first in hopes that when his card doesn’t go through you just give him a handout. Then follows up and just takes items at will.
