September 2017 Police Reports

OCTOBER 19, 2017 | LOWELL HARGENS

On its website, the Seattle Police Department provides detailed incident descriptions for several categories crime. In Madison Valley, the most common of these categories is burglary, followed by robbery and aggravated assault. Data for the past four years show that on average each month there are 7 burglaries, 1.1 robberies and .3 aggravated assaults in Madison Valley. Burglaries are not only more frequent than the other two types, they also vary more from month to month. For example, over the past four years the number of burglaries in a given month ranged from one to sixteen, while the monthly totals for the other two categories were, with only one exception, in the range between zero and two. In view of these monthly averages, September 2017 was a fairly typical month in Madison Valley because five burglaries, one robbery and no aggravated assaults were reported to the police.

 

crime-sep-2017

 

1. At 9 PM on Sept. 1 police were called to a residence on E. Highland Dr. near 24th to investigate a burglary. When they arrived, the victim told them that earlier that evening someone had broken into a locked storage unit on the property and had stolen tires and wheels worth approximately $2500. The police found no fingerprints at the scene.

2. Sometime during the night of Sept. 2 – 3 a burglar entered an unlocked residence on E. Roy near 26th while the residents were asleep and stole key rings and two jars containing approximately $50 in change. Using a key on one of the key rings, the burglar was also able to steal some dry cleaning from the owner’s vehicle. Police were called to investigate the next day and found fingerprints on one of the change jars that had been found abandoned in the neighborhood. However, a pair of white gloves were also found at the scene, suggesting that the finger prints may not be those of the burglar.

3. Also during the night of Sept. 2 – 3 a burglar entered another unlocked home nearby on 27th Ave. E close to Roy and stole items from the top of a dresser near where the owner was sleeping. After leaving the house, the burglar used a stolen key to steal the owner’s car. Police found no fingerprints at the scene.

4. Shortly after 10 PM on Sept. 12 police were called to an apartment building on 19th near Howell to investigate a burglary. When they arrived, they detained a suspect leaving the building carrying two large bags. Upon further investigation, they learned that another person, described as a tall and skinny white male wearing dark clothes, had broken down the door of one of the apartments and had entered the unit. The police report suggests that the police have information about the identity of the burglar.

5. On Sept. 13 a burglar once again broke into the storage unit involved in burglary number 1 above. After stealing cleaning supplies, a compressor and a jack handle, the burglar fled in a vehicle south in the alley toward Prospect. A security camera recorded the incident and the video footage was forwarded to the police lab for analysis. The victim believes that the same burglar responsible for the previous Sept. 1 incident carried out the this one.

The robbery reported in Madison Valley in September was an armed robbery committed in broad daylight.

On September 27th at around 4:30 PM a woman visiting from San Francisco was approached by a man holding an knife while she was walking north on 21st Ave. E. near Galer. The man, described as a young black male wearing a grey hoodie and saggy dark jeans that revealed his underwear, told the woman “Excuse me, give me your purse and just go.” The woman initially refused, but when the robber repeated his demand, she gave him the purse, which contained a cell phone, credit cards and $120 in cash. After the robber fled west on Galer, the woman returned to a friend’s house in the neighborhood and called the police. The police searched the neighborhood but were unable to find anyone matching the description of the robber.

August 2017 Police Reports

OCTOBER 5, 2017 | LOWELL HARGENS

In mid-August the SPD unveiled a new website for access to its Police Report data. Although the new website makes some kinds of analyses easier, it makes others, such as presenting monthly data specific to Madison Valley, more difficult. As a result, until I become more familiar with the new system I will focus the monthly Madison Valley report on the types incidents for which detailed descriptions are available, such as robberies, burglaries and aggravated assaults. This means that information about the numbers and locations of other incidents, such as car prowls and property damage/graffiti, will not be reported. I hope to be able to find a way to obtain such information soon so that future monthly reports can again cover these less serious incidents.

 

crime-aug-2017

 

During August, there were five burglaries, an aggravated assault, and an armed robbery in Madison Valley.

1. Sometime during Aug. 05 – 14 someone broke into the garage of a residence on 21st Ave. E. near Highland and took a generator and a bicycle. Police found a bottle that the burglar had left in the garage and sent it the police lab for a fingerprint search.

2. On Aug. 9 there was a non-residential burglary on 25th near Harrison, but no details of the incident have been posted.

3. On Aug. 15 at approximately 4:30 PM a burglar broke into an apartment on 20th near John by removing a window screen and crawling through the uncovered window. Once inside the apartment, the burglar took a black handbag containing a wallet with $60 inside as well as personal ID and credit cards. The victim called the police upon returning to the apartment the next day, by which time several purchases had been made with the credit cards. Security cameras at the building recorded the burglar, described as a white male about 5”11” tall with a thin build, short dark hair and wearing black clothes, breaking into the apartment and leaving it carrying a black handbag. Police found fingerprints at the scene.

4. Police were called to an apartment building on 24th Ave. E near Denny on Aug. 16 to investigate a burglary that apparently occurred sometime between Aug. 9 and Aug. 15. A neighbor discovered several open packages outside the building that were addressed to residents of the building and reported this to the building’s manager. The police learned that someone had recently forced open mailboxes in the building and the door to a storage room, but were unable to locate usable fingerprints.

5. Sometime between Aug. 16 and Sept. 8 a burglar entered an apartment on 19th near Thomas, and after ransacking it, took a laptop and approximately $60 in cash. The victim, who had been away since Aug. 16, found upon returning that her front door was ajar even though she had locked the deadbolt when she left. The victim told police that there were ongoing problems with security at the apartment building.

6. Sometime between Aug. 25 and Sept. 2 there was a burglary at a home on 24th Ave. E. near Valley, but no details have been posted.

On Aug. 7, shortly after noon there was an aggravated assault at 22nd and Union. Although the police have posted no details, this incident is listed as a possible hate crime.

At 11:50 P.M. on Aug. 31 police were called to a business on Union near 24th to investigate an armed robbery that had just occurred. When they arrived, employees told them that while they were cleaning up and preparing to close for the day, three robbers, dressed in hoodies and wearing face masks, came into the store brandishing handguns with laser sights. The gunmen ordered the employees into a back room and made them lie face down on the floor. The night manager of the store, who was in the back room getting ready for closing, was ordered to open a locked safe, but told the robbers that he didn’t know the combination. The robbers then took a bag containing over $5000 in cash and fled the store. The entire incident took less than a minute and was recorded by the store’s security cameras.

Proposed Neighborhood Parking Reforms

Legislation is being prepared (and attached to the notice) to update parking regulations, including how ‘frequent transit’ is measured, expanding access to off street parking by introducing a new ‘flexible-use parking’ category and allowing park and ride use in garages in certain areas, unbundling parking spaces from units in multifamily housing, and other changes to parking requirements. The SDCI Director has determined that the changes will have no probable significant environmental impact, which is a step in the process before the legislation is introduced to Council.

The Artist Karrie Baas

SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 | CATHERINE NUNNELEY

Karrie Baas’s life working in the Arts is a success story. An artist by nature and profession, Karrie wanted to enjoy her love of painting without the constant pressure of financial concerns. She developed her gallery and framing business to support her artist self.

 

baas-karrie

 

Karrie has been a Seattleite for over 30 years. When her partner, Margaret, received a coveted job offer, they decided to relocate here. In 1990, as Margaret settled into her new professional life, Karrie enrolled in Cornish College of the Arts. Five years of study yielded a BFA in Painting, printmaking, and photography. Initially, Karrie thought she would pursue photography and was looking for a space that could accommodate a dark room. However, with the advent of the digital age, the dark room seemed unrealistic and she abandoned the plan. Instead, she settled into a painting career.

 

baas-couple

baas-dog

 

By September of 1995, a few months after graduation, Karrie had signed the first lease for her Baas Art Gallery and Framing Shop, becoming a member of our Madison Valley community. “It’s a perfect location,” she explains. “So many people come along Madison Street on their way to other nearby destinations that we have a lot of exposure. The space is great as a gallery and has plenty of room for the framing work.”

In 1995, when Baas Art Gallery and Framing opened along East Madison Street, the business community was just beginning to polish its rough edges. The commitment to beginning a business here was a bold move.

Karrie was a founding member of the Madison Valley Merchants Association and continues to participate as an important voice for the organization. It was the work of the Merchants that gave Madison Valley its current identity. Previously, our community was just a neighborhood between Madrona and Montlake. Dilapidated buildings, drug dealing and general scruffiness lent an unwelcoming and sometimes frightening atmosphere here. She and others worked tirelessly to upgrade the business corridor into the pleasant experience we enjoy today.

Karrie says the framing side of her business is rewarding. “It’s a great feeling of accomplishment to begin and finish a project on one’s own. To stand back and see how the framing complements and enhances the art is wonderful!” She explained that it takes at least a full year of training to become a proficient framer. Baas Framing has a terrific staff of three professional picture framers: Julia Ricketts, Peter Kelleher and Heather Wehman. They enjoy a generous benefit package. A teen internship is offered during the summer.

 

baas-storefront

 

In addition to the framing business, Karrie hosts works from local artists on consignment and provides exhibitions. Everyone benefits—the artists receive much deserved exposure, and community members are able to appreciate their talented neighbors. Karrie has a pleasant place for patrons to browse and get to know her business.

Karrie says that it was difficult to ride out the last recession. Several businesses were forced to close. However, she has a loyal clientele that trusts her eye and she was able to survive. Experiences like the recession have deepened Karrie’s commitment to patronizing small, local businesses. She is an avid proponent of seeking out independent merchants that survive on their community’s appreciation of great quality and service.

Karrie Baas has had an integral hand in the development of our vibrant shopping district. As a community, we applaud her work for the betterment of everyone in the neighborhood. Thank you, Karrie!

VML Advertising Chooses Our Harrison Ridge for Team Building

SEPTEMBER 19, 2017 | CATHERINE NUNNELEY

Fifteen members of the advertising firm VML donned old clothes and gloves to take on the Harrison Ridge Greenbelt. The firm is committed to volunteer events as a team-building experience.

When forest stewards Cathy Nunneley and Trina Wherry handed out tools and explained the task at hand several members looked somewhat aghast. The area we intended to work on was a slope thick with thorny blackberries, spider webs and other entanglements. This work was a far cry from their usual day of sit down computer tasks. However, fueled onward with coffee generously donated by Starbucks, they plunged right into it.

 

greenbelt-vml2

 

It was amusing for Cathy and Trina to hear the banter of colleagues that had never seen each other outside of the office. It was fun! “Sure beats being trapped inside on a sunny day!” exclaimed one worker.

The group cleared about 800 sq. ft. of invasive plants. They then covered the land with burlap and chips. This 3-hour event accomplished what Cathy and Trina are able to do in two years!! The area is now ready for the planting native species to expedite the way to a future healthy urban forest.

Much gratitude to VML for choosing our reforestation site.

City People’s / PCC Design Review Recommendation Meeting

SEPTEMBER 1, 2017 | EDITOR

The Design Review Recommendation Meeting regarding the development on the City People’s lot will be held on September 13th, 2017, 6:30 pm at Seattle University, 965 12th Ave, Pigott Bldg, Room 104.

 

pcc

 

The project has been through the “Early Design Guidance” (EDG) meeting three times. At the third EDG meeting, the board approved the project to go forward through the permitting process, with the expectation that the Design Review Board’s concerns would be addressed in this upcoming Design Review Recommendation meeting.

You can read more about Design Review and how it fits into the Master Use Permitting process in this document from the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (DCI). The Design Review Recommendation Meeting may be your last chance to provide public comment on this project’s design.

The project is currently at 9 of 12 in the design review process timeline, see page 4 of the PDF linked above. This meeting is also described in the section labeled “Step 4: Design Review Board Recommendation Meeting” on page 8 of that same document.

Note that Seattle’s Municipal Code allows either the developer or DCI to require additional Design Review meetings, so this may not be the last public meeting on the design aspects of the project.

You can review the design proposal packet here. Warning, it's a large file, ~64MB.

You can read the Design Review Board’s feedback from the previous three Early Design Guidance meetings in this document. The board’s feedback from the third meeting held on January 25, 2017 appears in the section entitled “Priorities & Board Recommendations” which runs from pages 13-15

July 2017 Police Reports

AUGUST 29, 2017 | LOWELL HARGENS

There were 38 incidents in Madison Valley reported to the police during July, the third month in a row with an exceptionally low total. Car prowling and vehicle theft remained at low levels and there were only two burglaries.

 

crime-jul-2017

 

1. On July 6 police were called to a residence on E. 25th near Denny to investigate a burglary. When they arrived, the victim told them that sometime between June 27and July 3 someone had taken a bicycle worth approximately $840 from the garage at his residence. The victim and his roommates had left the garage unlocked while they cleaned it out during the previous days, and the burglar apparently took the bicycle while the garage was unattended. The victim provided the police with the serial number of the stolen bicycle.

2. On July 10, sometime between noon and 4 PM, someone stole a wallet from the maintenance room of a commercial building on 23rd near Denny. The victim told police that he realized that he didn’t have his wallet only when he had returned home after work, and that subsequently he had been notified that charges were being made to his credit card. The maintenance room opens onto the garage at the commercial building and the victim told police that residents of the building often let unauthorized people in when they open the door to enter the garage. It is likely that security cameras recorded the burglar when she or he entered the garage.

In addition, there were two robberies reported in Madison Valley during July.

1. At 11:05 PM on July 18 police responded to a call from the supermarket at E 22nd and Madison. When they arrived, the store manager told them that the store’s security officer had observed a man riding one of the store’s motorized scooters out of the store with a large bag filled with merchandise that he had not paid for. When the security officer tried to stop him, the shoplifter tried to ram him with the scooter. The shoplifter, who had thereby become an armed robber, then drove the scooter to his vehicle outside the store, put the bag of merchandise in his vehicle, and fled southbound on 23rd. The security officer and the store manager gave the police the license plate number of the robber’s vehicle and video tape footage of the incident. A store employee estimated that the robber took approximately $1200 worth of merchandise.

2. On July 25 at approximately 10 PM police were called to investigate a strong-arm robbery that had occurred at around 2 PM that day near 22nd and Pine. The victim told police that she had been walking south on 22nd with her baby in a stroller when the robber, described as a black male in his mid 30s, intentionally collided with her. The robber immediately apologized and claimed the physical contact had been an accident, but after he had started walking away the victim noticed that her cell phone had been taken from the cup holder on the stroller. She then shouted at the robber, who began running north on 22nd. The victim followed the robber, who stopped and told her that he did not have her cell phone and emptied his pockets to prove it. At this point the victim asked the robber to help her locate where he had put her cell phone, and they shortly found it in some bushes. The police believe that the robber threw the cell phone away so that it would not be on his person if the police later detained him. Neither the victim nor her baby was injured in the incident.
