From Gabrielle:

My sister’s car got stolen overnight from 27th Ave and SW Holden Street; kitty-corner from E.C. Hughes Park. She last drove it at 9:30 pm on April 2. It’s a black 2018 Hyundai Tucson. (Stock photo of same make/model) The license plate number is CFW5133. There is no front plate, only a rear plate. Unique characteristics include a cow spots license plate frame, a pink dragon figurine on the dashboard, and trinkets hanging from the rear-view mirror including an Ariana Grande air freshener.

We’ll add the police report # when we get it.

    Have all the Hyundai’s and Kia’s stolen out of WS been taken with the internet method or are some of these (with all the other stolens) taken the old-fashioned way?

    My 2020 Kia Sportage was stolen 3 weeks ago near Delridge & Andover…it was found 4 days later totalled in a hit-n-run in Tacoma.  It was taken via the “tik-tok tutorial” using my own phone charger’s USB i leave in the car for obvious reasons for the key.  A simple Club may have deterred but maybe not (i hear the club is not so useful if they decide to just cut the steering wheel using bolt cutters)…should have gotten the free software upgrade offered by Kia but didn’t do so in time.  Not that any of this helps the Tucson owner, just wanted offer my experience in case others can avoid a similar situation.

      Sam. Steering wheels are plastic and easy to cut with a sharp instrument. When I got my stolen car back the still locked club was laying on the floor.

    I use the club on my car.  My feeling is if it deters even just the teenage joyriders or newbies looking for a quick easy steal, that’s a win.   If the thief is carrying bolt cutters or a saw  or whatever then there’s really nothing I can do to stop them anyway but at least I know I tried something.
