Guns, IDs, and property recovered after thief arrested in Queen Anne

Seattle Police seized two guns, a ballistic vest, and more than two dozen credit cards and government IDs when they arrested a suspect in lower Queen Anne last week.

At 10:45 a.m. on Dec. 15, a caller in the 700 block of 5th Avenue N requested police assistance to get her stolen property back. The caller explained the day before, her backpack had been stolen in the University District.

While loading her car, she left her backpack containing her credit cards/IDs, laptop, iPad, and other electronics propped up against the vehicle while she went back inside. When she returned, her backpack was gone.

She checked surveillance footage from her residence and saw a suspect drive up, take her bag, and then leave in a black Chevrolet sedan. After reporting the theft to the police, the victim monitored her stolen items using trackers on her devices.

She tracked one of her items to a parking garage in lower Queen Anne. Arriving officers found a black Chevrolet sedan in the garage that matched the vehicle in the victim’s surveillance footage. Police looked inside and could see a firearm near the driver’s seat.

As police were investigating, the suspect came down to the garage. Officers detained him, and the victim positively identified him. Police placed him under arrest and discovered some of the victim’s credit cards in his wallet and the keys to the car in his pocket.

Police booked the 37-year-old suspect into the King County Jail for possession of stolen property, theft, possessing a stolen firearm, and unlawful possession of a firearm because he is a convicted felon.
