WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen tan Tahoe; apparently abandoned red Civic; home break-in

Three reader reports in West Seattle Crime Watch:


Our tan 1995 Tahoe was stolen from our driveway on lower Henderson Street. The vehicle was stolen sometime between midnight (12/2) and 5 am. Washington plates AFL3344. Barn doors on rear and no emblems to indicate Chevy/Tahoe. License plate frames had “Catch and Release Wild Trout” both front and back. SPD report # 23-346806.

APPARENTLY ABANDONED RED CIVIC: From an anonymous texter:

There’s an abandoned red Hyundai Honda Civic at the corner of 26th and Brandon with the front wheel off. I reported on Find It Fix It but thought you might be interested in posting in case the owner wants to come get it before it is towed. License plate number BMS0627.

UPDATE: Commenter below says the car is NOT abandoned – it was in a crash and was towed there.

HOME BURGLARY: This report is from Kathy:

Our neighbor’s house on 54th Ave SW near Dakota St. was broken into this week. The neighbors are still assessing the damage and loss. It appears the crooks entered the backyard from the alley, then smashed the back glass door to get into the house.

    Hi, my roommate is the owner of the red Honda. He got into an accident last night, trying to dodge an animal in the road. We had it towed to the corner as it was the closest to our house.Please don’t get it towed while we look mechanic. Most are closed for the weekend.We left a note on the car. Please contact us if there’s a issue.

Sorry, comment time is over.
