Officers Make Warrant Arrests, Recover Gun While Investigating Stolen Car in Georgetown

Officers arrested two people and recovered a handgun early Wednesday after spotting a suspected stolen car, sporting stolen license plates, in Georgetown.

Just after 12:30 this morning officers located a 2000 Honda Civic at 6th Avenue South and South Michigan Street, occupied by four individuals.  The license plates on the car came back to another vehicle.

Officers interviewed the occupants.  The driver, a 21-year-old male, who is a convicted felon and unable to possess firearms, admitted to having a loaded Smith and Wesson .38 caliber revolver on his person, and a 26-year-old female passenger had an outstanding felony Department of Corrections warrant.  The two were arrested while the other two occupants were identified and released.

Officers believe that the Honda was an unreported stolen car due to the fact that the driver was using a modified key, often used by car thieves.

The two arrested individuals were later booked into the King County Jail and the car was impounded at the scene.  Detectives will handle the follow up investigation.
