    Just saw a truck like this without plates pulling into the Burien Safeway parking lot.  128th & 1st.  The one I saw had some turquoise paint splatters on the tailgate.

      Did it have a spare tire or toolbox on the back ?

    My ’98 F150 was hit by an inept theif about two months ago (Loman Beach area), all they did was completely destroy the passenger door lock and tried to use pliers or channel locks to turn the ignition, but they didn’t get anywhere.They didn’t disturb or steal any on my few belongings to include the garage door remote that I forgot to remove when I last parked it.

      That pic doesn’t look like an F-150. Is it just pertaining to the guy who broke into your truck? AND this guy’s pic has been on the WSB before, can’t remember what it pertain to but certainly I assume it wasn’t for anything GOOD!

        The pic is 100% a f150 I’ve never posted on the west Seattle blog before this is my first time & I don’t have any full photos

          Hey! I’ve seen this car, exact plates and all, at the RV encampment at 26th & Juneau. It’s not there now so I can’t call 911 but I’ve also seen it at Longfellow creek apartments as well.  I hope you get it back. If you do, it would be the seventh stolen vehicle recovery from these RVs in the last four months.
