WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Recognize these shoplifters-turned-robbers? Plus: Stolen blue Hyundai

In West Seattle Crime Watch:

RECOGNIZE THESE SHOPLIFTERS-TURNED-ROBBERS? Last week we reported on a shoplifting incident at Westwood Village Ross Dress for Less that turned into a robbery when the thief pulled a gun. This afternoon, police say there were actually three people involved and they’re published photos, looking for help in identifying them:

If you can identify any of them, you’re asked to call the SPD tip line at 206-233-5000.

STOLEN BLUE HYUNDAI: Maybe you have seen Hallie‘s car:

My car was stolen outside my house sometime after 2:30 am Sunday morning 10/09, right across from Sanislo Elementary School playfield. It’s a blue 2017 Hyundai Accent.
License plate (updated) CCU4842
They broke off my driver-side door handle.
SPD incident # 22-271161

    What state is that license plate from? Would there be just a back plate?

      Every license plate # we publish is Washington unless otherwise described.

         Asked because I’ve not seen a WA letter/number combo like that before.

          I’ll ask.

            It was a (WA) temp plate. However, Hallie realized when I asked her about it that it now has (or, at least pre-theft it had) a permanent (WA) plate, so I’ve updated above. Thank you.

    I’m reasonably certain that the woman and the cretin in the black cap are the same thieves that targeted my wife 9 years ago and went on a shopping spree with her cards: https://westseattleblog.com/2013/07/west-seattle-crime-watch-car-break-in-purse-theft-shopping-spree/.  What this old article doesn’t show are additional surveillance photos I have of the guy in the black cap, with the same distinctive scruffy red beard and body shape.  From the 2013 article, there were many comments that these two looked familiar and implicated in other crimes around that time.  We never got any resolution on our case, but if the police are looking for clues to this armed robbery, and my hunch is right about their identity, they may already be known to them through other cases.

    Bunch of losers! I hope the SPD catches each of you and the courts give you special time at the big house.  Get a job like a real human and earn your way instead of being parasites!

    I just saw her attempt to steal a bunch of clothes and purses from the tukwila goodwill yesterday and tried to say it’s hers when confronted at the door. they’re driving around in what looks like a mid 2010’s style silver nissan murano with no plates. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
