Car found! The police called my brother saying it was parked in an alley off 15th, just above 77th. My brother had gone back home several days ago so my husband and I went to retrieve it – looks like only an iPod missing and maybe some tools from the trunk, gas tank still half full. We had a weird run-in with the guy who lived there and apparently was the one who called it in – he *really* didn’t want us to take the five minutes the police had recommended to check the car out, make sure there were no needles, etc., wanted us to get it out of there right that red-hot minute, and got oddly belligerent with us. People are weird (and sometimes creepy). But anyway, it’s good news that it’s found and it’s driveable; too bad my brother has to make another round trip up to Seattle to pick it up, but it definitely could’ve been worse.
Yep, it’s reported, and he’s already got a rental car covered by his insurance to get him back down south. I’d feel bad that this happened to him no matter what, but feel extra bad that it happened outside my house!
