Officers then observed a kitchen knife on the front driver’s seat, previously concealed under the suspect’s legs.

Suspect volunteered the information that he was a convicted felon, stemming from a stabbing murder. A wallet (with WA DL) not belonging to the suspect was seen inside the car, and later recovered with the suspect’s permission.
