Followup: Subject of last week’s Highland Park search now in custody

(October 10th photo by WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand)
Just in from King County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Cindi West:

30-year-old Emanuel Kozma was arrested tonight around 6:30 pm in the Denny’s parking lot at S170sth and Pacific Hwy in SeaTac. He was the subject that King County Sheriff detectives chased on the 10th in the White Center area.

Detectives said he will be booked for investigation of Eluding, Assault 1, and Unlawful Possession of Firearm. The case will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review. He was caught due to persistent work from detectives!

Here’s our coverage from last Wednesday. Kozma had just gotten out of jail three hours before the chase/search, after a White Center drug arrest. Deputies started pursuing him in WC, and then he ran after the car he was driving flipped at 17th and Trenton.

    So glad to hear this. I just finished cleaning up the destroyed landscaping and broken glass, metal, plastic, and garbage left on my parking strip after the crash.

    Excellent. Now if they can just keep him in jail.

    T, I’m so sorry you had to deal with that.

    WSB: Please ban coyote from these boards.

    Emanuel belongs in prison for DECADES. These violent offenders have no place in our society.

    Coyote, what do you get out of attempting to belittle a victim of a crime? I find it  bizarre and inappropriate and reveals lack of character. It just isn’t particularly clever. And isn’t it against WSB rules anyway?

Sorry, comment time is over.
