West Seattle Crime Watch: 49th/Stevens followup

We just got more information about the police presence Wednesday morning at a home near 49th SW and Stevens (here’s our previous report; the actual location turned out to be closer to 49th than 50th) – police are able to share a few more details. According to Det. Mark Jamieson in the Seattle Police media unit:

Detectives served a warrant at that location and arrested a 19-year-old man. He was booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor. They also seized items from the house of evidentiary value.

He says the investigation is ongoing but they’re not looking for any other suspects. As for what the “evidentiary value” items might be – the city’s crime-report map shows a report filed yesterday in that vicinity described only as “pornography”; the full report is not likely to be available for a few days. We’ll continue to follow up, including checking with the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office on whether the man who was arrested will be charged.

    Thanks for the update. As I recall a few years back there was a minor on the registered sex offender list in that area, perhaps it’s the same person. I don’t know, but I appreciate the follow up to yesterdays activities.

    The corner of 49th Ave SW and SW Stevens is public school bus drop off site!

    Seems like a lot of police cars to arrest a single 19 y/o.

Sorry, comment time is over.
