CRIME: Windows shattered on several cars Wednesday; police have no leads
The King County Sheriff’s Office is confirming what several BTB Readers told us – that at least five cars, possibly up to 12, had their windows shattered in the 13000 block of 12th Ave South (map below) in Burien on Wednesday (July 31) between 5 – 8 p.m.
“This evening, we discovered one of our car’s window’s had been smashed out,” said one Reader. “It was parked on the street. And at least two other vehicles on our street (12th Ave S.) were hit today. Last night, the neighbor’s car had the same thing happen. The responding officer said he’s responded to reports of numerous other car window’s being smashed out as well. The scary part is these crimes are happening in the late afternoon – between 5pm and 8pm.”
The Reader added that there were no witnesses to the crimes in progress.
“We don’t know if they’re on foot or in a car. Hoping to get the word out so these crimes either stop or these guys are caught,” he added.
“Five cars had windows shattered with nothing stolen and three cars (in the same driveway) were scratched,” said Detective Jason Stanley of the Sheriff’s Office. “Deputies responded and took incident reports, but there are currently no leads on the cases.”
