WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Two business burglaries; found safe; car prowler interrupted

Four reports in West Seattle Crime Watch, starting with two business burglaries:

CRASH-AND-GRAB BURGLARY: Just after 3 am, police responding to what was called in as a crash found out it was actually a crash-and-grab burglary, at the Morgan Junction Domino’s. No major damage, though. The safe was taken, according to staff. (Added: According to dispatch audio, the burglar[s] were in a white SUV.)

ANOTHER PIZZA BURGLARY: We don’t know what time this happened, but police were called to A Pizza Mart at 35th and Roxbury in the 8 am hour today because of the damaged door. This too turned out to be a burglary. (Thanks for the tip on this one.)

FOUND SAFE: Whether this is the Domino’s safe, we don’t know, but a reader emailed this photo and report about a dumped safe seen this afternoon south of The Junction:

They saw it “in the alley between California and 42nd, south of Edmunds.”

CAR PROWLER INTERRUPTED: Peter reported this just before 5 am – he “scared off a car prowler in a white truck in North Admiral/Schmitz Park area (55th and Charlestown). I could see them going down the street with their lights off stopping at cars and checking handles. Then they stopped at a neighbor’s truck and were checking it out before I came out and scared them off.”

    I’m so bummed to hear about the damage/burglary of A Pizza Mart.  The family that runs that spot is the nicest, and their food is great & reasonably priced.  I hope we can all stop by soon to show our support!

    I have a question what on earth do they manage to steal? Items to make pizza and soda pop. Because most people don’t use cash anymore to buy pizza and food from fast food places and restaurants.

    The owners of A Pizza are wonderful. They are parents and hard workers. They’ve been in that neighborhood many years and this angers me to my core. Smalls business just try to survive and provide for their family. I’ll never understand why this strip keeps getting attacked.
