Anyone missing a dog?

Just found this little muffin hanging out in front of my house. E-mail me at jackofallnames at gmail dot com to describe the pup. I have to go to work at 4, but will be home around 9:30.

House robbed. Again.

I posted a couple of weeks ago about my house being robbed while home. Well, they did it again. We weren’t home this time and they were able to grab a lot more. The night before that my neighbor’s car was broken into and the night before that another one of our neighbor’s house was hit. We live near the corner of MLK & Yesler, and it sounds like our block is getting hit hard this month. Keep those doors and windows locked! (We have house guests who left a basement window open).

My house got robbed last night… while I was home.

Last night around 11 p.m., a teenager was looking in my living room window. He looked startled to find me there with my friends and said he had the wrong house. I didn’t think much of it until an hour later when I went to bed and found some lights on. My jeans pockets had been emptied out, my bureau had been rifled through, and my old laptop was missing. I’m missing all my tips that I made from this weekend (I work at Mezzaluna), some other cash I had tucked away, and my old laptop. It is an old iBook and has been broken for 2 years, but I had been meaning to try and get some stuff off of it.

I’m the same person that posted a couple of months ago about someone stealing parts off of my car in broad daylight. I live near the MLK & Yesler corner. Thieves are getting a lot more brave these days. Be careful!

What is worse than your car being stolen?

Someone stealing parts off of your car.

This afternoon around 3 p.m. my housemate came home to find someone removing parts from my car. When she confronted him about it, he said that the owner had sold it to him for parts. She explained that that was not possible and that the owner of the car was me. He took off and I came home to find that my muffler, glove box, stereo, starter, and blinkers had all been removed from my car. Luckily, my roommate caught him in the act and he didn’t have a chance to actually take most of this stuff so now most of it is in the backseat of my car. Which, you know, will probably be stolen tonight.

This was in the middle of the day on 27th & Fir.

If you’ve got a Honda, watch out.
