Two West Seattle Crime Watch updates tonight:
HIGHLAND PARK ARREST TONIGHT: Via Twitter and e-mail, we received several reports of police, guns drawn, at a home in Highland Park a few hours ago, in the 10th/Thistle vicinity (map). Southwest Precinct Lt. Alan Williams explains that officers surrounded the house in hopes of carrying out an arrest warrant – and they were successful. Aside from the alarming-to-neighbors sight, Lt. Williams says the arrest was made “without incident” and the suspect is in jail.
JOEL LUND UPDATE: We’ve been following this 28-year-old suspect’s case, particularly since a judge allowed him out of jail and into the Community Center for Alternative Programs – requiring daily check-ins and classes, among other things – after his arrest in connection with a catalytic-converter theft involving an elderly victim south of The Junction. He subsequently was arrested last Thursday night and charged with assault. His bail was upped to $20,000, but tonight it is double that, now that a judge has canceled his alternative-program participation in connection with the previous charge. As court documents note, one of the conditions of participating in the alternative program was “You shall commit no (new) crimes.”
