In the neighborhoods: July crime stats: Big increase in vehicle thefts (Eastlake)
From the Eastlake Ave neighborhood blog:
The July crime statistics have been released by the Seattle Police Department. Vehicle thefts were up dramatically — 140% — in the two precincts Eastlake is a part of.
As I’ve explained before, it’s difficult to see Eastlake’s exact numbers in these statistics. We’re included in two larger police beats (Capitol Hill and the Cascade neighborhoods). To make it even more difficult, North of E. Lynn, you live in the East Precinct; south of Lynn, you’re in the West Precinct (check the attached precinct map to make sense of this).
