Seattle Police arrested two people for multiple felony charges and recovered a stolen car and handgun Monday morning.

The two were also tied to the theft of 26 other firearms in Federal Way.

Just after 9:45 a.m., officers went to a hotel parking garage in the 1000 block of Pike Street to check the welfare of a man in a parked vehicle.

Police could see two visible bullet holes in the driver’s door and contacted the man inside the vehicle, who was not injured. Officers took the man into custody after a check of the VIN confirmed the car was reported stolen.

A handgun found in the vehicle was also confirmed as stolen. During the investigation, police contacted the occupant of a hotel room associated with the arrested suspect. Officers found computer equipment and other materials used to produce forged identification cards, as well as multiple identification cards and blank checks belonging to other people, and took the occupant into custody.
