WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Upper Morgan search over, suspect in custody

9:52 PM: Thanks for the texted tips. Police are searching for a suspect in Upper Morgan. We’re still trying to confirm exactly how this started – it broke out while we were out on the Shorewood crash. The suspect is described in part as male, 5’11”, short dark hair, a face mask, gray sweatshirt and sweat pants, “missing at least one shoe” according to archived radio traffic. K-9 is part of the search. We’ve been to the scene once but a sergeant had just arrived and hadn’t been briefed yet, so we’re going back for an update.

10:06 PM: The search is over; the suspect is in custody. Police tell us it was a domestic violence and burglary incident – he was wanted for breaking into his ex-partner’s residence and stealing some items.

            Don’t know exactly where they caught up with him. He actually was without two shoes by then – officers radioed in that both were found at the original crime scene.

    It’s a seasonal thing for villains. In the summer, they are arrested without shirts. In the cold winter months. shoes seem to be the discarded apparel of choice. But all that molt are given an adequate wardrobe when they end up in the big house.

Sorry, comment time is over.
