Police Arrest Two Felony Suspects, Recover Guns, Stolen Vehicle and Property

Seattle Police located two felony warrant suspects in a stolen vehicle Wednesday afternoon in the Green Lake neighborhood.

Officers arrived at approximately 12:20 p.m. in the 400 block of Northeast 71st Street. Police contacted the man seated in the driver’s seat and the woman front passenger, who both appeared to be sleeping in a stolen car.

Once awake, the man attempted to leave by driving forward into patrol vehicles parked in front of the car. The car became disabled from the impact with the patrol vehicles.

After his attempts to flee in the car failed, the 28-year-old male suspect and the 26-year-old female suspect exited the car in another attempt to escape from officers. The female suspect was taken into custody as soon as she exited the car. After a brief foot chase, officers took the male suspect into custody.

Police recovered the stolen car and completed a search before returning it to the registered owner. Officers recovered two guns and possibly several other stolen items from the car. Police will investigate further to return any identified stolen property if possible.

The male suspect was arrested for possession of stolen vehicle, unlawful possession of a firearm, assault, attempting to elude police, and his outstanding burglary warrant. The female suspect was arrested for her outstanding burglary warrant. Both suspects* were booked into King County Jail.
