Thieves Targeting Boeing Parking Lots in Everett

January 28, 2016

Everett, Police Blotter

Boeing Parking

Parking lots where access is not controlled by a gate have been hit hard.

Recently there have been a growing number of car prowls and thefts from the Everett Boeing Plant parking lots. Everett Police Spokesman Aaron Snell tells MyEverettNews.com that over the past several weeks they have taken reports of 50 car prowls and 8 vehicle thefts.

Snell says the majority of the thefts have come from outer parking lots where access is not controlled by a gate. “People are leaving electronics and other items in plain sight,” said Snell. “It’s often a crime of opportunity.”

Boeing Parking

One of the many shuttle vans used by Boeing employees.

Construction at multiple locations on the Boeing complex has led to both aircraft assembly employees and construction workers parking off site and taking vans and buses to the plant. That in turn has created more opportunities for car prowlers.

A detective has been assigned specifically to work on the car prowls and thefts from Boeing properties and Everett Police have also stepped up patrols.

Snell says if you have to leave personal electronics or other items of value in your vehicle, it’s a good idea to take a photo and record the serial numbers or identifying information so items have a better chance of being recovered.

The Everett Police Department has a list of suggestions of ways to reduce your chance of being a victim of a car prowl or theft.

Additionally Everett Police would like to have people report any suspicious activity in the Boeing parking lots to 9-1-1 and if workers have been the victims of a car prowl to also alert the police.

    Had my flight log books stolen. These can’t be replaced. Reward. Had over 5k in other fight gear, was going fling after work and they took it all.

      These thieves didn’t just walk off. They had a vehicle and multiple people, had it staked out most likely. One road in and out. Sure would think there would be security cameras after the news. Guess Boeing doesn’t care.

    probably doesn’t help that the area of Sievers Ducey Blvd and Hardeson Rd have an issue with druggies and homeless people sleeping in the woods around there. I live in the area and see folks coming and going from the woods on Hardeson Rd. This activity is going to make it real hard to get top value of our house when put on the market this spring. Damn EVERETT SUCKS!

    There are growing numbers of homeless camps in the outlying woods around Boeing. The rise in the crime has increased when the camps appeared.

      Impossible. These things don’t exist here or in Fremantle just ask our elected leaders .

        Haha that is true.

        After the shooting in the homeless camp, the Seattle mayor actually stated, “I just broke down and thought I could have done more.” Really? As if letting them take over the city and giving them free services isn’t enough. Pathetic! Everett is quickly heading down the same path.

    I’ve unfortunately met a few union people from Boeing. I would start looking at them first.

    • A Says:

      Most likely not a Boeing worker. Have ya had a look around at the area? Check the woods, check narabeck, how about Casino Road or even the cars which have people living in them up over the hill there down by pickle time deli, subway on 75thand Hardeson Rd, that’s where the trouble is lurking. I know, I live off 75th & Hardeson and there are druggie homeless folk living there and they come through my neighborhood daily.

    Boeing doesn’t care if your car gets broken into. They have camera’s but only use them to bust employees. I work at Boeing and several of my friends have had their cars broken into or vandalized. And have asked for the camera footage. They say it’s not a Boeing concern. So basically as all of us employees of Boeing already know. They don’t give a cap about us. And haven’t for a long time

      Even if the police had video of the scumbags nutn would be done. You should feel blessed to work for such an honest company. Now stop your bitchn and support management so they can rack up more bonuses!

  6. Jim Says:

    Some well placed video cameras would help identify who is responsible.

  7. JDS Says:

    It is Boeing employee parking. They mean outside the plant’s main gates. That is where everyone parks. Not inside the gates which is reserved for management and 25 years+ employees

    • John Sudds Says:

      It says off site. that means it is not on boeing property.

      • hello Says:

        Boeing considers it their property when they send out caravans to bust employees smoking, but if someone slips and falls on ice or gets their car broken in to, they say it is not their property.

  8. Eleanore Says:

    Guess I should have read the story before I commented lol….parking lots outside of Boeing is what the title of the story should have read its not happening on Boeing property

  9. Eleanore Says:

    You would think they would have some sort of security guard in that area
