WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Pinball machine stolen

Just out of the inbox, from the Corner Pocket in The Junction: “A vendor of ours at the Corner Pocket just had ‘Iron Maiden’ pinball machine stolen off the back of his truck. They stole the machine and a dolly that he had in his truck.” This happened in the lot off the north side of 44th/Alaska between 1:30-2 pm. We’ll add the SPD incident # when we get it.

    And no one saw anything? If it was a theft of opportunity, one or two guys running with a pinball machine down the street/alley/sidewalk wouldn’t get anyone to say “Hmm, that doesn’t look right, maybe I should see if I could intervene…”? Who knows, maybe they looked exactly like someone rolling a pinball machine down the road should and drew no attention…

    We saw a pickup truck with Montana plates heading north on I-5 with an Iron Maiden pinball machine in the bed. We think the truck was light blue, but we can’t recall exactly. It was passing the Mercer exit at ~1:3094 so.

    I’d watch Pinside.com and see if it comes up for sale. The only new Ad located in Washington State close to Seattle is for a premium version of Iron Maiden over in Blaine, WA.

    Iron Maiden…. The Trooper and Number of the Beast.   Two crank it up amazing songs.

Sorry, comment time is over.
