Crime notes: car prowls and car keying in east Green Lake

What do you think? (4 Comments) March 29, 2012 at 1:48PM

A resident of Weedin Pl NE near Northwest CrossFit (466 NE 70th St) reports that his car has been broken into twice this month. He writes:

I’ve filed a police report for both incidents, but if you’d like to let your readers know that there is a definite prowler in the area and to make sure they aren’t keeping valuables in the car! I haven’t been, but it hasn’t stopped them from targeting my car and stealing personal items.

And, another reader sent in this note yesterday (Wednesday, March 29, 2012):

My husband had his car vandalized while parked from 6am to 4pm at the Park & Ride near 65th and Ravenna (under I-5). The vandal keyed the side of his car, including a swear word keyed into his hood. Please be on the lookout!

If you have information about any of these crimes, please contact the Seattle Police Department’s North Precinct at (206) 684-5735.

    I’ve noticed a lot more windows smashed. I drive down Latona every day (past Irwins and Latona Pub) and have seen numerous car windows smashed.

    For what it’s worth, our hot little manual Honda SI was stolen over two months ago from the NW side of Green Lake and we still haven’t got it back.  And at this point, after 60+ days of gear-grinding driving and heavens knows what else,  I think we’d just prefer to have the memories.

  3. Last night, two car seats were stolen from a mini-van on my block.  Cross street Latona and 58th.

  4. I’m in the house on the corner of 68th and Weedin PL NE. I was up the other night around 4am with our 7 week old kiddo and while walking around the house trying to calm her down, I saw a Hispanic guy in shorts and a hoodie flashing a flashlight into every single car on the street. He walked down 68th toward Ravenna doing the same thing. I turned on our outside lights and called 911 to let them know.
