CRIME: Robber steals generator from Three Tree Point home Wed. morning

A brazen robber stole a generator from Three Tree Point resident Fred Feiertag’s home in broad daylight on Wednesday morning (May 11).

The stolen generator was a Honda EU 3000is model valued around $2,000, similar to this:

“It is in nearly new condition with about one pound of diamonds hidden in the gas tank,” Fred quipped. “I’m pretty sure that’s where I left them this time…”

Fred told us that he initially heard some noise outside his house around 9:30 a.m., then looked out the window and saw a man loading his generator – from his basement garage – into the back of a green SUV. He went outside to confront/stop the man, who quickly drove off as Fred grabbed at the vehicle.

As the thief sped off, Fred was knocked down in the street and injured. He was treated at his home by medics, then later checked at an ER for some minor abrasions and bruises.

“I will be hurting for a few days,” Fred added.

He also filed a report with Burien Police.

“Folks need to understand that this is daytime stuff – not dark of night,” Fred told The B-Town Blog. “This idiot didn’t even bother to check if anyone was home. His car was full of loot and my generator was about the last straw. I’m very surprised the thief could lift it through the back window of his SUV. It is pretty heavy.”

Fred lives in the 16900 block of Maplewild Ave SW.
