Early Friday morning (Dec. 2), a crime was committed in Burien’s Three Tree Point neighborhood – what appears to be a young man smashed up a parked car in the 16500 block of Maplewild, causing over $2,000 worth of damage.

The victim, Rob Halpin, initially posted info and surveillance camera video to the Three Tree Point Yahoo Group. We saw his post and asked if we could perhaps help by spreading the info and video to a larger audience.

Rob gives the details of the crime:

  • At 4:55am on Friday, Dec. 2, a dark-colored Honda Fit carrying at least two people pulled up and stopped in the 16500 block of Maplewild Ave SW.
  • What appears to be a young male wearing tightly-fitting clothing got out of the passenger side of the car and hit the driver’s side of a parked car twice, smashing the window of the parked car and causing dents.
  • Right after smashing the window, the young male got back into the Honda Fit and sped off in a southerly direction on Maplewild Ave.
  • The young male made no attempt to look inside or take anything from  the car.
  • Burien Police came (Deputy Garskye) and looked at the car. They didn’t offer an opinion on the cause of the crime.

So…we’re asking our Readers if they recognize the vandal suspects or their car from the following videos; the first one shows the crime from a nearby security camera (around the :20 mark), while the second shows a clear shot of the suspect vehicle as it drives away:

If you recognize the suspect or car, please contact the Burien Police Department at their non-emergency phone number: (206) 296-3333.

    Why don’t you use YouTube videos so those of us on iPhones can see the video?

    They are YouTube videos.

    Interesting…. I get a flash player error when I try to view. I wonder if it has to do either the way they are embedded.

    Looks like a dumb chimpanzee that got out of his cage, and wanted to make his mark.


    Why don’t you find something more PRODUCTIVE to do with your time.
