LETTER: Neighborhood where car windows smashed now hit by burglaries
[EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a Letter to the Editor, written by a Reader. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The B-Town Blog nor its staff:]
I noticed the BTB story about a series of car windows being shattered – my wife’s car was one of the cars hit. :/ thank you for getting the word out.
Now this same neighborhood is being hit with a rash of home burglaries. The Burien crime map (see above) currently show three home burglaries in for the ‘13000 Block 12 AV S’ area – not including my own home … we’ve had 4 burglaries in a one-square block area within a 6 day span (8/6 – 8/12).
Like the car window smashings, I know at least two of the crimes happened during the middle of the day. I spoke with my neighbor – an elderly woman – who says they broke in through her basement door. On the day my house was broken into, I was at home all day with my baby – except for a short 45 minute drive post office and quick walk around the 152nd businesses – on 8/12. When we returned home, the thieves had ransacked my office area and made off with jewelry and electronics. Apparently my neighbor’s home was also hit when she ran a quick errand.
What worries us most is the fear that our homes are being watched, to see when we leave even to run quick errands.
Thank you for your time.
