West Seattle Crime Watch followup: The Arbor Heights search

As noted last night, Seattle Police told us they couldn’t comment on the incident that brought so many officers to Arbor Heights in the 5:30 pm vicinity, because it was a King County Sheriff’s Office case. We have just heard back from KCSO’s media liaison Sgt. John Urquhart, who explains what it was about:

This was a stolen car in the driveway at a house in the 3500 block of SW 97th [map]. Our detectives saw a man in the driveway who took off running when we approached. A foot pursuit ensued. SPD was called to help out. The car had been stolen from Tukwila. The person who ran was not found, but one other man associated was booked on charges unrelated to the stolen car.

    That was a pretty large response for a “stolen car”.

    Your right, you don’t get it. Obviously you don’t know what really was happening. The stolen car was just part of it.

    Ridiculous? No…a suspected Felon leaving a stolen car may be or may have been involved in something more serious. The suspect associated with him was booked. The more officers, the better the chance of a catch.

Sorry, comment time is over.
