I just caught a women prowling around in my neighbors back yard in the middle of the day (29th/Dravus).  I called police and apparently she has been burglarizing apartments along 25th.  If you see her, please call 911.  She is white, wearing black track suit, has strawberry/blond hair and is carrying a purse.

She came to our home…Literally opened the back door (which was unlocked) and entered!  Black track suit with soccer logos- we are at 29th and Blaine…I called the police & am showing them this posting. Scary, people!

    We had things taken from our car (32nd Ave W) last month the day after we left for a long weekend. Weird thing about it was, our house is the most well lite house on the block, we’ve never had an issue and ironically the day after we leave town my briefcase along with my work PC were taken…coincidence or was someone staking out our home!? I know…I know….I should not have left these things in my car….Hard lesson learned!

    Sounds like Melissa lives near me. Glad we always keep the doors locked.

    This girl was arrested yesterday (Nov 28) by Seattle Police. Sadly she was a local resident recognized prowling in her old neighborhood on 36th West- however she had been in several houses already.

    Any update on this woman? Someone tried to open our back door which was locked Sunday night. When we went to see, we could hear footsteps running away.

    This morning around 6:00 i spotted a woman outside my home. She had blonde hair and seemed to try to shield her face from me. She definitely was up to something. The police will be notified. Keep an eye out!! I live just west of metro market.
