WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen white F-250 work truck

Another stolen work truck – this one, reported by Tom:

My 2005 white F-250, single cab, hydraulic lift gate, with company logo (oval blue “Rainier”) on both doors, was stolen from 44th and Genesee between last night (Sunday 5/15) and early this morning before 6 am. Please keep an eye out. It is hard to miss. I suspect the logo was the first thing to go, though. It’s an older model and a little beat up, with large dents on the panels.

License plate # is B77776V. Police report # 23-132478.

    This vehicle is currently parked at 41st and Andover. Right next to Tibbetts church. 100% this truck.

    Everyone please consider installing some manner of kill switch in your automobiles. It’s often easy enough to DIY after watching a couple YouTube videos. If you only drive occasionally you can even remove a relay or disconnect some other part between outings. It’s worth the peace of mind.

      How do you remove a relay?

      • RecreationalDriver May 15, 2023 (8:42 pm)

        Most automobiles will have an accessible fuse box either inside under the dash or in the engine compartment that contains removable/replaceable fuses and relays. These are associated with the various electrical systems and components of the vehicle, some of which are required for the car to move. If you remove an important one and disable a critical system the vehicle won’t be drivable.

        I know this a late response to you so I hope you read it, but I found a YouTube video that showed me where mine was. Once you find it, it’s super easy to remove.

    Cyclops Theft deterrent. $150 and takes 2 minutes to install. vehicle will not start with out the fob. These non-chipped key Fords with the plastic door handles take 30 seconds to steal. They tried 4 times this year with my 2006 F-250.

Sorry, comment time is over.
