The following are selected reports from the Seattle Police Department’s West Precinct. They represent the officers’ accounts of the events described.

Overnight Burglary

At approximately 6:45 a.m. on March 28, the owners of a home in the 3200 block of 36th Avenue West called 911 to report an overnight break-in.

They told responding officers that the break in occurred while they were sleeping, sometime between 11:30 p.m. and 4 a.m.

When they woke up that morning, they found several interior doors open and the front door unlocked, not how these doors were left the night before.

The victims reported two cell phones and a laptop stolen from the downstairs study. None of the residents reported hearing any noises while they were sleeping.

Mail Thieves

Shortly after 12:30 a.m. on March 29, police responded to an apartment building in the 500 block of Aloha Street.

The building manager reported there had been a mail theft the previous morning. The building’s video surveillance system captured two suspects entering the building by unknown means and approaching the mail room at about 1:30 a.m. the day before. The suspects opened at least four packages and took the contents before trying to force open a mailbox.

Just Looking

Just after 6 p.m. on March 28, police responded to an apartment building in the 200 block of Fifth Avenue North for a burglary that occured shortly before 3 a.m. that morning.

The building manager showed responding officers video of two suspects prying the building’s exterior door open, then heading to the bike storage locker and prying its door open as well. The suspects looked around the bike locker but left without taking anything.

Officers warned the building manager that the suspects would likely be back now that they knew they could easily pry the doors open.

She said she’d called a contractor who was going to come out and reinforce the doors.

Everything and the Kitchen Sink

A little before 9:30 a.m. on March 20, a contractor called 911 to report the house he was working at — located in the 2800 block of 30th Avenue West — was burglarized, and a bunch of his tools were stolen.

He said he got to work at about 8:30 a.m. that morning and couldn’t get in the front door because someone had pushed his tile saw up against the door to keep it closed.

It took him several minutes to get the door open, and once he did, he found about $4,500 worth of tools missing. A basement window was found open, and its screen was removed. A red portable battery charger was found in the back alley.

The burglar may have parked a car in the alley and loaded the tools in it. The contractor reported 24 tools and pieces of hardware stolen including the kitchen sink.

Stolen Baseball Cards

Shortly before 10 a.m. on March 30, residents of an apartment building in the 700 block of Second Avenue West called 911 to report a burglary, which occurred sometime between midnight and 6:30 a.m.

The burglar pried open two mailboxes in the mail room before heading down to the parking garage, where he broke into two storage units, stealing six boxes of collectible baseball cards from one storage unit.

The victim told police he believed the baseball cards were worth about $10,000.

The suspect also shattered one resident’s car window, stealing a pair of sunglasses and the remote to the parking garage door.

Stolen iPad

Just before 6:30 p.m. on March 30 the building manager of an apartment located in the 300 block of First Avenue West called 911 to report a burglary.

He said there was security video of the suspect prying open the building’s front door at about 1:47 a.m. that morning. Once inside the building, the suspect roamed around before prying open the building manager’s office door and stealing an iPad.

He also went down to the parking garage, but the manager said he wasn’t sure if he’d stolen anything else.

Giving Up Easy

Around 4:30 p.m. on March 30, police responded to an apartment building in the 700 block of Seventh Avenue North for a burglary.

The building manager told police there was video of two suspects picking the lock to the building’s front door. Once inside the suspects went down to the underground parking garage and tried the handles to several cars. Finding none of the cars unlocked, the suspects gave up and left. They were inside the building for about 20 minutes total.

Compromised Garage Door

Just after 1:30 p.m. on March 31, police responded to a burglary at a house in the 2500 block of 30th Avenue West.

The homeowner reported that his daughter returned from work at about 11:30 a.m. that morning, and found the front door open.

He said he believes the suspect entered the house through the garage and exited out the front door. He found the garage door rolled up about two feet.

The victim walked through the house and found multiple drawers open and rummaged through but nothing appeared to be missing. Two new smartphones still in the box had been taken from the house but were later found in the front yard.

He did say his daughter was missing about 25 video games and some medication bottles.

Failed Robbery

At approximately 1:30 a.m. on March 31, employees of a store in the 100 block of Mercer Street called 911 to request assistance for a robbery victim that had just walked into the store.

The victim, who had a laceration by his right eye, told police he’d been waiting at a bus stop a couple of blocks away when a small man tried to rob him.

He said the suspect hit him on the side of the head with a small club. He said the blow caused him to lose consciousness for a bit, but the suspect didn’t actually get anything from him.

Police searched the area for the suspect but weren’t able to find him.
