Officers arrest two suspected car prowlers in West Seattle

The efforts of officers working an auto theft/car prowl emphasis patrol paid off early this morning when they responded to a report of a car prowl in progress and took into custody the two suspects.   

At about 2:20 this morning  radio broadcast a car prowl in progress in the 3800 Block of  45th Avenue SW.  Several William Sector officers were in the area already on an assigned auto theft/car prowl emphasis patrol. Two officers located the described suspect vehicle one minute later, and stopped it at SW Spokane St. and  46th Avenue SW.  The vehicle and one suspect were positively identified by a witness, and a large quantity of apparently stolen property, including at least 8 car stereos, was visible inside the car.  These suspects are also likely responsible for a  car prowl from earlier tonight, in which the suspects were seen leaving in a dark 2-door Honda.

Both suspects, a 26-year-old male and a 32-year-old female, were booked into the King County Jail for Car Prowl and the suspect vehicle, a green 1998 Honda Accord,  was towed to the processing room, pending a warrant. Detectives will now handle the follow up investigation.
