#2021-267092/Southwest Precinct/First Watch:

On 10-09-2021 at 0530, during a temporary assignment with the Robbery Unit, an officer investigated a carjacking in the South Precinct. His thorough and tireless investigation ultimately identified a suspect (a violent, convicted felon) that was also possibly responsible for several other violent crimes in Seattle and King County. Officer secured warrants for the suspect and a residence in the SW Precinct. This morning, SPD SWAT served those warrants and safely and effectively arrested the suspect. Multiple members of CRG assisted with the operation. Additional evidence, including ammunition and narcotics, was recovered. Incidentally, SW Patrol had an active project involving a vulnerable adult living in the residence. CRG and SW Patrol were able to resolve that matter peacefully following SWAT’s securing of the residence.

On 10-09-2021 at 1030 hours, two suspects entered the business and jumped over the counter into the pharmacy area. They demanded and physically forced the employee to open the time lock safe. Unsuccessful due to impatience, they demanded Promethazine and Codeine and were unsuccessful again as the pharmacy does not carry that product. They stole several boxes of Suboxone and fled on foot. K9 attempted to track, and an area check was negative. Appears related to a call earlier in the day.
