Two Juveniles Arrested from Traffic Stop, Recovered Two Firearms and Cash  

Early Wednesday morning, a patrol officer observed a car traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed from an area where reports of a suspicious vehicle was car-prowling.  

Just before 1:00 a.m., the officer conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of Denny Way and Stewart Street and contacted the driver of the vehicle. The 16-year-old male did not have a valid driver’s license.   

When police asked the driver to step out of the vehicle, a firearm was spotted under the driver’s seat. Officers placed the juvenile under arrest for unlawful possession of a firearm.  

Due to the easily accessible firearm in the vehicle, the male passenger was asked to step out of the vehicle and searched for weapons. Police recovered a loaded firearm from the 15-year-old male suspect’s waistband. He was also arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm.  

Both juvenile suspects were booked into the King County Child and Family Justice Center.   

Police impounded the vehicle and obtained a search warrant to recover the firearm and other items from the interior.  

The following was covered during the investigation of this incident: 

  • Two firearms 
  • Approximately $4,000 in cash 
  • Firearm accessories
