WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Kayak taken in business burglary

Alki Kayak Tours was broken into again early today, and they report one large stolen item:

Sadly, Alki Kayak Tours was broken into at 1:08 a.m. early this morning. Someone cut the cable locking our kayaks. By 1:12 a.m. the guy was gone with the boat. Please keep an eye open for a Castine 135 “Sunrise” – yellow, orange, and red in color – image (above). Also, it had a “Mountain to Sound” (our retail store) sticker on it.

SPD incident # is 2022-920876.

    I have this same kayak, and I purchased it, so please don’t assume that a person with an identical boat is a criminal.  I don’t know how many of them have been sold, but I will photograph my receipt so that I have it on my phone in case someone gets over zealous.

      Uh I think you can relax dude. The SWAT team isn’t going to kick in your door.

        Guy#2.  Vlad is just being realistic. It isn’t the SWAT team he’s concerned about. It’s the vigilantes that would act first-check facts later. You really believe those people aren’t in WS???

          I’ve seen them!!! They stand next to the election ballot drop-off boxes waiting … wait for it, wait, wait, wait for it … waiting to “catch” the election cheaters like me … who has two, yes TWO ballot envelopes to drop off (one is mine, the other is my wife’s).

    @ guy #2; nothing in Vlad’s comment was over-the-top. We’re told to keep an eye out. He’s got the exact same kayak. It’s not like a car with a VIN #. Nor even a bicycle with a serial number. Not sure why his post caused you a knee-jerk

      The kayak should have a HIN number. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
