Update: Maybe I should have titled this, “what’s the stupidest thing you’ve had stolen from your house?
We report on neighborhood crime with some regularity … but this is ridiculous.
The home there also houses Seattle Creative Kids Preschool, at 9221 12th Ave. N.E. You can just see the school in the right of this photo, taken when Seattle firefighters paid a day visit to the school last October.
“All that is left is the screws that were used to hold the baskets. I believe they were taken last night,” Sheila emails us from the school. “I’m so bummed they took my good Huecheras.”
Petty crime is not unknown in Maple Leaf. Cars are routinely plundered here, and as proprietors of the Dog Oasis, also on 12th Avenue Northeast, we have had several of our dog bowls stolen from the corner.
Shouldn’t thieves have more pride than to steal wooden planters and canine water bowls?Tweet
