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

Mail Theft

At approximately 10 a.m. on April 14, police responded to an apartment in the 500 block of Aloha Street for a mail theft.

The victim told police his passport was delivered to his apartment two days prior — at about 5:30 p.m. — and the package was left next to his mailbox.

When the victim realized his package had been delivered but wasn’t in the mailroom, he contacted his landlord, who provided security video that showed a suspect on a scooter pick up the package and take it.

Responding officers advised the victim to cancel his passport.

Burglarized Construction Site

A little before 2:30 p.m. on April 13, the owner of a house in the 2800 block of 22nd Avenue West called 911 to report a burglary that occurred overnight.

She said she was having a new house built directly behind her house, and that the new home was broken into overnight. The contractor was on the scene and told responding officers he’d locked up the house at about 6 p.m. the previous night.

When he came back to work at about 7:30 a.m. that morning he discovered the burglary. Four exterior doors were damaged along with a hose bib and a lock box. A jacket and two power drills were stolen.

The contractor said the cost to repair the damaged items would be at least $4,000 and the cost to replace the stolen items would be about $700.

Misplaced Vehicle

Just after 7 a.m. on April 13, police responded to a burglary at a condo in the 2200 block of West Ruffner Street.

The victim told police he’d gone to sleep the previous night leaving his garage door open. When he woke up he found his backpack, computer, car keys, wallet and car gone.

He said he’d already received calls from his credit card company informing him of fraudulent charges. Police located the victim’s car nearby on Valley Street. None of the items stolen from his apartment were in the car, but the car’s front license plate was missing and the back plate had been removed and swapped with the plate belonging to a car registered in Burien.

Seattle Police contacted Burien Police to attempt to determine what happened to the car the rear license plate belonged to.

Overnight Burglary

Shortly before noon on April 13, the owner of a restaurant located in the 1500 block of Queen Anne Avenue North called 911 to report an overnight burglary.

The vicitm said the restaurant’s security camera footage showed a suspect breaking into the business by punching out the front door’s lock.

The suspect was inside the restaurant for about two minutes, rummaging around behind the bar and in the kitchen. The suspect stole a cash register, a set of keys, a checkbook, and two tablets.

Once he was done, the suspect exited through the front door and got on a bike, riding out of view.

The restaurant owner said the employee who closed the night before reported a suspicious person came into the restaurant that night, looked around and said, “nice place” before leaving.

The surveillance video did not confirm if the suspicious person was the suspect.

Jacked Up

Just after 6 a.m. on April 13, police responded to a store in the 1900 block of Queen Anne Avenue North for a burglary that occurred overnight.

Officers checked the inside of the store and found that someone used a vehicle jack to lift a roll up gate that closes the store off from a hallway it shares with an apartment building.

The burglar stole an tablet computer, laptop and an envelope containing eight payroll paychecks.

They left behind the vehicle jack, a pair of bolt cutters and a chisel.

Prowling Spree

Shortly before 4:30 a.m. on April 15, police responded to a burglary at a house in the 2100 block of 32nd Avenue West.

The victims told police they’d heard noises coming from the lower level of their house at about 4:20 a.m.

When one of the victims went downstairs to investigate he looked outside and saw his car, which was parked on the street, driving away. He went outside and saw his garage door standing open, and noticed a bike and an tablet computer were also missing.

His second car was parked in the driveway, and he said he may have forgotten to lock it. It had a garage door opener and may have also had the key to the car that was stolen.

Just after 9 a.m. that morning, police responded to a similar burglary at a house in the 2000 block of Condon Way West.

The victim said her car was prowled overnight. It had been parked in the street in front of her house. A garage door opener and $70 were taken from the car, which the victim may have left unlocked. The garage door was open, but nothing was taken.

The victim said she’d heard her garage door open sometime between midnight and 1 a.m. but didn’t go down to check it out.
