Capitol Hill Car Prowler Caught Sock-Handed

Police arrested a man, who was wearing socks over his hands, for prowling cars near Cal Anderson Park on Thursday afternoon.

An officer was patrolling the Capitol Hill area around 1 PM when a witness flagged him down to report seeing a prowler trying to open car doors. The officer spotted the suspect in the area and detained him. The witness verified that officers found the right guy and sock-cuffed the 31-year-old Seattle man.

Police found the suspect to be in possession of a laptop, debit card, and I.D. all belonging to others.

Officers booked the man into King County Jail for possession of stolen property and drug charges.
