WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen pickup and SUV; apparently abandoned car

Three reader reports:

STOLEN TRUCK: The report and photo are from Desiree:

My mother’s truck was stolen yesterday evening around 6:30 pm on 16th and Dakota near West Seattle Recycle.

It’s a 1995 F150 XLT blue teal Ford with a big dent on the passenger side and a medium dent on driver side. It has a tool box in back. Plate number: C12358Y . My mom loves this ugly ol’ truck and is devastated. If anyone sees it I’d love if they could let me (ot the police) know!

STOLEN SUV: This report and photo are from Athena:

Stolen near Fauntleroy and Findlay between 8 pm last night and 6 am today, a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Ohio plate JLD4116. Police report # 2022-252347.


This appears to be an abandoned vehicle on Ferry and Hill street. Spoke with neighbors and it’s been there a week or so. No plates on it but did get a VIN off it. A couple tickets on it. I’ll report it to to (SPD). Just wanted to make sure to let anyone know if they are missing it.

    Desiree—I’ve seen a homeless guy in the neighborhood driving this truck. I was struck by the bright blue color, and the fact that literally every car he ever drives turns out to be stolen. It’s probably somewhere not far from Juneau and 30th. I’ll call 911 if I see it again.
