Crime notes: Hicks extradition, purple pleasure, more break-ins

Daniel Hicks extradition hearing today. — The Seattle Times

A brand new purple vibrator was among the items stolen from a home at 19th and Massachusetts. —

On the mailing list, Maureen wrote that her basement apartment at 14th and Winthrop was burglarized yesterday between about 1:30 and 3:30pm, with entry through a window in full view of the street. This was the only time when no one was home; was someone watching? The thieves made off with two laptops. Two weeks ago, the vacant house on the opposite corner was also broken into, by smashing the back door glass. Maureen also noted seeing some unfamiliar dog-walkers always on their cellphones in the area recently.

Update: The SPD Blotter has some additional details on the home invasion robbery mentioned last night.
