Repeat car prowls target Queen Anne

October 29th, 2009 by Thea

One of our readers, John, wrote in to report three recent car prowls in the seemingly secure parking lot of his east Queen Anne apartment building. He wrote,

I am a resident in the Domaine apartments that here on Queen Anne. I am writing you an email today to tip you off on some recent car prowls and thefts we have had in our “secure” garage.

In the past 10 days we have had 3 car break ins and one car stolen out of the garage. These people have been very professional as the cars were slim jimmed or lock picked to steal out items. There were no smashed windows.

My car was hit on early Monday morning and they stole all 4 rims and tires and put my suv on blocks.

Thought I would let you know. If you have heard more about this in the area, people should be aware to be on the look out and to keep any valuables with them.

Burglaries have been an all too frequent occurrence on the hill lately. Read our crime update earlier this month for more information on what you can do to avoid being burgled. If you’ve noticed any suspicious activities on the hill recently, email us at
