Officers Seize Handgun, Oxycodone Pills in Downtown Seattle Arrest

Officers seized a handgun and oxycodone pills in downtown Seattle on Tuesday after spotting a man wanted on several felony warrants.

Around 1:30 PM, officers spotted the 29-year-old man, who they knew was wanted for his warrants, in the 1400 block of 2nd Avenue. When the man noticed officers, he pulled up a facemask, turned and began walking away.

The man entered a retail store at 2nd and Union, where officers caught up to him and took him into custody. Police recovered a loaded handgun–which was registered to another person–and eight oxycodone pills from the man’s pants.

Officers booked the man, who is a convicted felon and unable to legally possess firearms, for investigation of unlawful possession of a firearm and his warrants.
