WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Hit-and-run; package theft

Two reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch:

HIT-RUN: Amanda is looking for witnesses:

My car was involved in a hit and run last night (3/25) between 9:45 pm and 11 pm on the corner of 42 Ave SW and College Ave.

They didn’t leave info so I’m trying to find out if anyone saw or knows anything. I rang neighbors’ door bells too but no one answered so I’m hoping someone might have a Ring cam or something in the area. Police case # 23-81847.

PACKAGE TAKEN: Another reader report, this one from Jeff:

Here’s a video of someone stealing an Amazon package [Saturday] morning at 6:30 am. 39th Ave SW between Stevens and Lander.

No police report # on this one yet.

P.S. The dumped-likely-stolen tool boxes mentioned here Saturday have been claimed – thanks to both Jessica, who found them and sent us the photos, and the reader who quickly saw the post and knew whose they were.

    That’s awful. Jeff is one of the nicest guys who goes out of way to help everyone in the neighborhood. I wonder if the perp was following the early morning delivery.

    Try the Amazon pick up lockers which have many locations, they are free, and easy to use. When you place your Amazon order select to have it delivered to a locker instead of your porch. Amazon sends you a notice your package is delivered to the locker, you get a code to open the locker door, and you have a 2 or 3 days to pick up. Works great!  

Sorry, comment time is over.
