Tonight at Alki Community Council meeting, lieutenant of operations for the southwest sector. Dorothee Kim said auto theft is the only category of crime that continues to rise, here and across the city. And tonight we have two vehicle theft reports to start a late night West Seattle Crime Watch summary :
STOLEN COMMERCIAL VAN: Even if you haven’t tried MX 32 kitchen‘s mobile Mexican food, you may have seen them around town. Their catering/truck business is based in White Center and often in West Seattle. Tonight around 6:30 p.m. their van – shown above – was stolen. We don’t have the location or plate/report numbers yet, but let the police know if you find it.
STOLEN SPORTAGE: Kirsten emailed to report: “We had our 2020 Kia Sportage vehicle stolen from a company parking lot in the Delridge area today.” Pictures above; the plate is BRL6131; The SPD incident number is 23-72440.
CAR BREAK-INS: From Rachel:
Last night, between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m., our car and several others had windows smashed in the LA Fitness parking garage. We filed a police report and nothing was taken (because we had no valuables in the car), but the car itself is our valuables. I just want people to be aware.
ARREST FOR ASSAULT: If you saw police making an arrest at/near Jefferson Square around 12:30 p.m., that might have been the case detailed in this SPD blotter post tonight. It started with a December assault in the Queen Anne; they identified a suspect and obtained an arrest warrant in January, and found the suspect in West Seattle today. They say the 36-year-old was driving a stolen car in which officers found a firearm he was not legally allowed to possess.
