Sean tells us someone broke into his car on North 100th Street between Evanston and Dayton avenues last night. They jimmied the lock and emptied the contents of the glove compartment and center console onto the seats and floor, and stole a backpack out of the trunk.
Did anyone see or hear anything, or have a similar experience?
The annual Night Out is coming up this Tuesday and thousands of neighbors in Seattle are planning to close off their streets to traffic so they can play and get to know each other better.
Last year, more than 1,400 events registered with Seattle Police Department.
Registration to close off your street ends at 5 p.m. Monday. You can add your event to SPD’s official Night Out map, and even request that police, fire or elected officials drop by (there’s no guarantee they’ll be able to). The Night Out website also has event flyers and street closure signs that you can print off.
Send us photos from your block party and we’ll post them the next day.
Karleen tells us her neighbor near North 49th Street and Greenwood Avenue was robbed on Monday, July 6, between 12-1 p.m. The burglar managed to take a closed and locked metal window completely out of the frame to enter the bottom level of the house. However, it doesn’t appear the burglar took anything.
She says police had reports of a prowler along Greenwood Avenue between North 46th and 51st streets that day, and were hoping someone had video footage of possible suspects.

Vandals did some serious damage to one of Greenwood Hardware’s installation trucks early on Sunday, July 12, cutting all the fuel lines, removing the battery and siphoning the gas tank. They also stole several items from the yard.
Security cameras caught at least two individuals at two times: around 12:15 a.m. and again at 1:30 a.m. They also tried to damage the security camera.
Here are two snippets of security video.
If you recognize the men or have any information, please call Seattle Police. Greenwood Hardware’s case number is 15-227147. The case number for Zot Lasers, the glass-cutting business inside the hardware store, is 15-242219.
Last week Seattle Police arrested the suspected ringleader of a prolific North Seattle burglary ring and his girlfriend at a motel near University Village. SPD believes the crew broke into homes during the day and businesses at night, as well as storage units.
Detectives have already arrested two other suspects in the case, but are still seeking three others.
Police found hundreds of suspected stolen items in the suspects’ truck and storage unit. They’ve posted pictures online of the stolen items. If you believe any of the items are yours, you’ll need to provide proof of ownership, such as a purchase receipt, case number related to the item, or a photo clearly showing you with the item. You can provide that information to detectives at SPD5002@seattle.gov.
