Seattle Police Department (SPD) announced Saturday that they have recovered a vehicle that was stolen from a family while their 1-year-old child was recovering from brain surgery at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

The car was stolen Oct. 28 at around 8 p.m. from one of the parking garages at the hospital.

During a stolen vehicle recovery operation across the city Friday, SPD located the car.

The driver drove erratically in an attempt to get away, and eventually parked in a parking lot in Queen Anne.

When officers moved in SPD says the suspect attempted to push his way through two patrol cars.

The driver got out of the car and attempted to run away, but officers quickly arrested him.

In addition to recovering the stolen vehicle, police say they also located two loaded firearms — one of which was stolen — methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine, marijuana, and $8,000 in cash.
