    Is this a normal amount of auto thefts for the Eastlake area? I just started following this report because, well, one of our cars was stolen and I’m curious if this is out of the ordinary. And 4 in one day? Seems high.

    I have lived in the Eastlake area since ’93 and have had two cars stolen(car 1 once, car two twice). I was told by the SPD that Eastlake is common path between Capital Hill & the UDistrict and that car thieves will steal cars to travel between the two places. My current car has the spark plug wires right on top when I open the hood, so I unplug them. Haven’t had my car messed with since. Best & cheapest anti-theft procedure!

    Thx for tip, Brian.

    With so many street-parked cars, and easy “quick-getaway” paths [Eastlake Ave; Lakeview Bl; Boylston+I-5 south], it’s not surprising this neighborhood is a prime target.

    Are legal penalties for auto theft still ridiculously weak? There are a lot of multiple offenders out there…

    Brian,

    When my car was stolen and recovered a few years back, SPD basically said that there was not much they can do. They didn’t really seem interested in pursuing property theft crimes. I was greatly disappointed in their attitude. Having your car stolen or your home broken into is quite a violating experience.

    From what I read, the state has incredibly lenient laws regarding auto theft and the cases are very difficult to prosecute.
