Great police work leads to arrest of kidnapping/carjacking/robbery suspect

On the evening of January 13th, Gang Unit detectives, Seattle Police SWAT and the Fugitive Task Force located the suspect in last week’s carjacking/kidnapping incident.  Detectives were able to develop information that the suspect in last week’s crime was in an apartment in the 3400 Block of Renton Place  South.  As soon as the suspect left the residence, officers and detectives moved in to make the arrest.  The suspect fled on foot, but was quickly captured by the SWAT officers and Gang detectives.  The 22 year -old man was booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Kidnapping, Carjacking, Robbery, Violation of the Uniformed Firearms Act (VUFA), Violation of the Controlled Substance Act (Drugs) and Eluding after being interviewed by detectives.  This was outstanding police work! This remains an active and on-going investigation.
