LETTER: White Center Resident Concerned About Mail Theft

[EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a Letter to the Editor, written by a Reader. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The White Center Blog nor its staff:]

I’m a resident of White Center (around 12th and 112th Ave SW). The other morning I noticed my mail stolen out of my mailbox, and on a recent morning while walking my dog I noticed a suspicious vehicle on 14th Ave just North of 116th Ave SW going through mailboxes on that block!

Any chance you can post a warning on The White Center blog for neighbors to keep their eye out for a suspicious vehicle in the area who may be stealing mail? I’m not the best at details. I only noticed the disturbed mailboxes after the car had passed me so I didn’t get the lic. plate number (argh!!).

But the following is a description of what I DID notice about the vehicle:

White, two door Toyota Celica or Honda CRX (or similar sporty-looking car), I’m guessing early 90’s model. There were a couple of stickers on the rear window/hatch of the car that I couldn’t make out. The driver/passenger windows were slightly tinted, so at 6AM it was hard to get any details of the driver other than slender male (white?) with very short hair/buzz cut and no noticeable facial hair.

I did contact the non-emergency police dispatch and they tell me there is nothing they can do to assist so it would be great if you’d be willing to help get the word out.

    ,,,,thank you M. Williams, I also am a resident on the same block and have had our mailbox broken last year. Try to take down the license plate number and report to 911 as well as our Community Service officer. If possible bring a camera phone with you.

    Same car dumped thousands of opened mail on my block, 98th and 21st. The mail man scrapped it all up and took it back to the post office. That same older white car, with 2 skinny younger white males broke into 3 houses on our block. Caught on Camera, but didn’t get a plate number 🙁
