Parking garage car thieves: Help Seattle police identify suspects in two separate cases

UPDATE: Seattle police say Crime Stoppers tips have identified the suspect pictured above on the left as Scott Geddis. WANTED IN SEATTLE -- A warning for you tonight. Please, don't leave anything valuable in your car overnight. Thieves in two separate cases broke into secured garages in Seattle and ripped people off. Fortunately, we know what they look like and just need your help identifying them.

Seattle detectives say this guy is a burglar and a car thief. Surveillance video shows him going from vehicle to vehicle looking in them for anything to steal. "If you have really valuable things, your computer, your iPad. You're storing personal things on them,” Ret. Detective Myrle Carner from Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound said. “Maybe your codes, your pin numbers, all those things, take it the next step, take it from your car, take it to your apartment and let's be safe. "

One victim didn't and the thief found his mountain hardware backpack with his Apple Macbook, two Panasonic video cameras in cases and Bose Headphones in the car when he smashed out the window. "Just because it's a secured garage doesn't mean it's totally secure,” Carner said. “So take your stuff with you." He loaded everything into a black Nissan 300ZX and then stole it as well. Police found the car but don't know who the suspect is.

He looks to be in his late teens or early 20s about 5 feet 8 inches tall with short brown hair. Cops are hoping you know his name. That break-in was on Stone Way north on July 19. Then on Aug. 2, detectives say a different suspect was trying to break into a condo building on Northlake Way in Seattle pulled off a similar crime. "He's pretty agile,” Carner said. “He jumps a fence. Once he's inside the fence, then he breaks into the complex. Once he's in the complex, he works his way down to the quote unquote secured parking garage where he does his car prowl and then he steals a vehicle."

The car he jacked was a 1997 Red Honda Civic and it hasn't been found. Detectives also broke into several other vehicles. "Just use common sense,” Carner said. “Remove the valuable items out of view, take them with you or lock them up somewhere else.” Here's another look at both of the burglars. These guys are breaking into garages while you sleep and then stealing what ever they can, including your car. It's happened to me so I know what it feels like to go out to your car to go to work and find it stolen. It makes you angry.

If you now either of their names, Crime Stoppers will pay you a cash reward of up to $1,000.
