“Man with a Gun” Call leads to More Guns, Drugs

Officers seize drugs and recover at least one stolen gun after a 911 call of a man with a gun.  On October 14th at approximately 2:46 a.m. officers responded to a 911 call of a “man with a gun” in the 900 block of 27th Avenue.  The suspect with the gun was described as a black male, 5’10” tall and wearing a white t-shirt.

The first officer arriving on scene contacted four to five subjects in front of the house in question.  The officer saw the described suspect from the 911 complaint go inside the house and then come back outside just as additional officers were arriving on scene.

As the officers investigated further they obtained consent to search the porch area of the suspect house.  Officers located three loaded handguns under a sofa and a quantity of narcotics, including suspected crack cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana.  One of the guns was discovered to be stolen out of Tacoma.

Due to a witness being unavailable for positive identification, the subjects were identified, interviewed and released pending further investigation.

The contraband was seized and placed into evidence.
