My Ballard reader Avril McLane wrote to tell us about a woman who stole mail from her home in Ballard around 1 p.m. this afternoon. She lives in a house just off 15th Ave NW and NW 61st St, and says she saw a woman in her late 20s, early 30s with blond shoulder-length hair and bright pink knit ski cap stealing mail from her house. “She was carrying a big tote bag that looked like it was stuffed with other people’s mail,” McLane writes. When she called after the woman, she took off running southbound on 15th Ave NW past Taco Del Mar. “I hope she pays my bills!” McLane joked.
McLane filed a police report about the incident, but wanted to warn others who live in the area. If you have any information about the woman, contact Seattle Police.
