[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:]

Dear Editor,

It is a sad day in Burien. A friend went to Eagle Landing Park today (Monday, Oct. 7, 2013) for a run at about 1403. He left the truck in the somewhat secluded parking lot. When he arrived back to his vehicle at approximately 1418, the rear window was broken, and valuables such as his computer were stolen. Another vehicle nearby was also apparently broken in to about the same time.

What strikes me is the shear audacity of these criminals who do this at all, let alone in a public place and in broad daylight. This must not be their first time. At least two vehicles in 15 minutes. They must have been casing the area waiting for easy prey.

So, let’s put their reign of robbery to an end. If anyone has any information about this, please contact Burien Police. It is my belief that someone, given the time and locality, saw this crime happen.

I would recommend not parking in this area, and do not come alone for a run. Also, do not leave personal belongings in your automobiles. I just shudder to think about, this day and age, what these people can do with information of yours.

Sincerely,
A concerned citizen

    While it is unfortunate what your friend went through, leaving valuuables in your vehicle in plain sight (or at all) is asking for trouble. Same thing happened to my father a few years back downtown, hard lesson to learn but if you leave valuables in your car you leave yourself open to theft.

    Come November we will hopefully have new council members that understand that we need to beef up our police force and do what is necessary to make Burien a safer place to live.
