Man Arrested for Firearms Offenses in Georgetown Friday

Police took a 39-year-old man into custody Friday afternoon following an investigation and recovery of a stolen semi-automatic rifle in the Georgetown neighborhood.

Around 4 p.m., officers with the SPD Community Response Group (CRG) saw a man wearing a handgun in a shoulder holster outside a motorhome in the 600 block of S Homer Street. Further investigation and a records check confirmed the man was a convicted felon and prohibited from possessing any type of firearms.

CRG officers attempted to contact the man, but he ignored their instructions, went into his motorhome, and shut the door. Police tried to call him out through their PA system, but the man continued to ignore their commands.

After making phone contact with the man and developing further dialogue, he agreed to come out of the motorhome and was taken into custody.

Police served a search warrant on the motorhome and seized the following items:

  • .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun – loaded with a round in the chamber
  • SKS style rifle – confirmed stolen out of King County
  • Suspected home-made suppressor
  • Rifle case containing 4 loaded clips with 38 rounds of 7.62×39 rifle ammunition
  • Ammunition for various handgun calibers
  • Firearm accessories

The suspect was taken to the King County Jail and booked for investigation of unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm.
