Detectives Investigating After a Dozen Guns, Thousands of Rounds of Ammo Stolen From South Seattle Home

A Beacon Hill resident reported at least a dozen firearms had been stolen in a burglary at his home Wednesday. The man arrived at his home in the 4000 block of 14th Avenue South and found several empty shipping boxes sitting on his front porches. At one point, the boxes had contained thousands of rounds of ammunition. They were now empty and the front door of the man’s home had been pried open.


The man called 911 and police arrived, searched the home, and spoke to the victim, who said approximately 12 pistols, 2 suppressors, red dot sights, weapons parts and approximately 2,000 rounds of ammunition had been stolen from the home.

Officers collected evidence at the scene and found a nearby surveillance camera, which appears to show the burglar in this case.

If you recognize the man, please call 911 or contact the South Precinct burglary unit at  206-386-1855
