WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 1 in custody after police search

(Added: WSB photo)

7:26 PM: Thanks for the tips about a big police response in Puget Ridge a little while ago – we have talked to police in the area and they tell us it started in Riverview, with an intruder reported in a house near 12th SW and SW Orchard, ending with a suspect being taken into custody at 16th SW and SW Dawson. Subsequent scanner traffic indicates that a vehicle apparently associated with the suspect, at the latter location, will be impounded.

7:34 PM: While the homeowner wasn’t home at the time of the break-in, their dog was, and police have made sure the dog is safe.

    Any word about the accident on 16th and Dawson? Two small cars, one having rear-ended the other, with 6 police cars nearby. I was in the 125 bus driving by the site at 7:15 pm.

      We didn’t hear anything about a crash – apparently no injuries, because the SFD log doesn’t show a dispatch – but 16th and Dawson is where there’s a vehicle associated with the suspect who was found in that area. – TR

    It was in my neighborhood. I’m so glad the dog, Lucy did not get hurt. Shout out to Seattle police for taking care of her and responding so quickly.

Sorry, comment time is over.
