According to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 10200 block of D. Street E. in Parkland because a GPS tracker indicated a stolen vehicle was there.

A deputy found the vehicle and discovered several other stolen vehicles, which prompted further investigation, and a warrant was granted to search exterior areas.

Deputies found eight stolen vehicles at the location, including:

  • 2010 Dodge Challenger (stolen from Everett)
  • 2019 Ford Explorer (stolen from Bellevue)
  • 2004 Toyota Sequoia (stolen from the Waller area)
  • 2005 Ford F-250 (stolen from unincorporated King County)

  • 2022 Honda Ruckus scooter (stolen from unincorporated King County)
  • 2020 Victory cargo trailer (stolen from the Gig Harbor area)
  • 1967 Buick Oldsmobile (stolen from Tacoma)

Deputies did not find anyone in the home. According to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, the warrant only covered outside the property.

All vehicles were towed to a secure lot to be searched, and fingerprints were taken.

The investigation continues.
