December 14th, 2015 · Comments

We’re receiving quite a few crime reports these days, especially car and house prowls. Here are the latest.

Paul says he had left his house at North 92nd Street and 2nd Avenue NW for just a few hours on Saturday, and when he returned he found two window screens had been cut as someone tried to break in to his house. They didn’t get in. He always keeps his three yard gates closed; someone had left them open.

Gail tells us that on Sunday she saw a car with every window broken except the windshield on North 75th Street near Greenwood Avenue.

Andrew says someone broke into his car on North 74th Street at Dayton Avenue North Sunday night and took a shoe box with size 14 Rockports. If you’ve seen the shoes lying around, please put a note below in comments or email us at tips@phinneywood.com and we’ll put you in touch with Andrew.

Updates since our initial post this morning:

Burglars broke into Violet Sweet Shoppe at 6410 Phinney Ave. N. by breaking the window with bricks and severely damaging the front door sometime between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. today.

Peter says someone stole his wife’s bike out of their carport at NW 97th Street and 2nd Avenue NW Saturday night by cutting a 5/8-inch steel cable. It’s an orange and white retro-looking 2014 Jamis Coda Sport commuter bike.

Pete says another car was broken into on NW 83rd Street between 3rd and 6th avenues NW this weekend.
