FOLLOWUP: Police find stolen Prius, arrest suspect

Last Saturday morning, we published Fuchi‘s report of a black 2017 Prius stolen near California/Hanford. Today, Fuchi e-mailed with word the car was found last night, “with a collection of presumably stolen goods inside, and suspected thief was arrested.” We contacted Seattle Police to find out more. Media relations Det. Mark Jamieson tells us a detective spotted the car in the Junction QFC parking lot and confirmed it was stolen; the suspect was arrested shortly thereafter “without incident.” After the car was reclaimed, that’s when items that didn’t belong to the owners were discovered; police have those items now, Det. Jamieson said. He didn’t have details about the suspect – except that he’s in his 30s – because the report is still being processed.

    Well done by the detective, maybe citizens can put together an incentive fund as a reward for good work such as this.   I would certainly donate to a system that raises the attention to stopping this type of property crime.  I know, it’s called taxes, but this type of property crime seems to not be very high on the list of things in need of attention, even though the populace wants more attention to these matters.

    Can you find out if the suspect was wearing a Michael Vick Jersey? I saw some suspect behavior going on in that parking garage last night with other individuals with this person.
