WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen red CR-V (update: found)

Andy sent this stolen-car report, hoping you might see it abandoned somewhere:

I wanted to report that my red 1999 Honda CR-V was stolen sometime between 3 am-530 am this morning. It had been parked right in front of our house on SW Dawson Street (west of California Ave/Rite Aid).

We looked out to see if there was snow. No snow, no car, either!

Police have been contacted, and I’ve spoken to an officer directly. They’re on the lookout. Hopefully someone spots it!

1999 Honda CR-V (Red)
License Plate: AYB4627

THURSDAY UPDATE: Found – see comment.

    This is the second 1990s Honda CRV stolen in WS in the last 48 hrs. Beware: Someone is shopping this model year for parts.

    Hi, I will be in the West Seattle area in a few hours to look for my stolen 94 Honda Del Sol. It was taken not far from where your car was stolen, behind the 4100 block on California and Genese. I’ll keep an eye out for your CR-V too.

    Sorry this happened to you too.

    Good luck!

    Take a drive down to the southwest  side of the first ave bridge where the homeless encampment is and a known chop shop. Not sure why this is allowed to exist by SPD. Super frustrating as this area is known to foster all kinds of trouble.

      This was discussed briefly at the recent community meeting at the precinct. The ops lieutenant said there were “firm dates” for sweeping the site, which is on state land. I followed up with my usual contact for sweeps info & their reply was far less conclusive, suggesting only that the site was being evaluated.

    Hi everyone & thanks. Just wanted to let you know the car’s been found. it was parked in a driveway on Jacobsen and the owner called my insurance company, who called me. Minor items taken from inside, and the ignition is broken and the catalytic converter was also taken, but I was able to limp home. Have alerted the SPD. Glad to have my car back. :)

      Thank you for the update. Think that’s the first time I’ve heard of an abandoned stolen car turning up there …

Sorry, comment time is over.
