CRIME WATCH FOLLOWUP: Still seeking suspect in post-car-theft burglary

Last weekend, we published Amy‘s reports about a car theft followed by a burglary while she and her daughter were asleep in their home. On Sunday, we added her update that a reader tip helped police find the suspect’s car – but not him. Still looking, she says, and wanted to re-enlist the community’s help:

The perpetrator in the home invasion in North Admiral from this past weekend is still at large. We need your help tracking him down. There is a warrant out for his arrest.

Progress so far: The police identified a second vehicle belonging to him, and my daughter’s laptop was in it. He/they tried to reset it so it’s a bit screwed up but we are working on it.

Between his 2 cars, there were several stolen items including more electronics and jewelry. The police have not been able to get a judge to sign a search warrant for his apartment yet.

The case was assigned to the Major Crimes unit yesterday.

If you see him, please let SPD know. It was a community tip that got him identified … let’s help get him where he belongs.

The case # to reference is 21-294795

    The police have not been able to get a judge to sign a search warrant for his apartment yet. Why not?  What is wrong with this judicial system?  Is it one particular judge or none can be bothered?

    I wonder what’s taking the judge so long.  I have a pen they can borrow if that helps?Joking aside, I’m sure there’s a fantastic Seattle-esque explanation.

      So they have a name and address?? How about giving the guy time to cleanse his apartment before they get a search warrant??? (Of course he probably isn’t that smart.)

      I completely agree. This person is obviously a dangerous thug. Scary.

    WSB. Do you know if the suspect is/was living in WS? 

  • Cjboffoli November 10, 2021 (5:59 pm)

    I’m relieved that they at least know who this guy is and where he lives.

    heh… somebody ,musta thought they defunded judges

  • Ant November 10, 2021 (8:18 pm)

    There is a good chance the judge believes the search warrant is sloppy, not detailed enough or has erroneous information that would lead it to be tossed in litigation. Thus, s/he is pushing back on to ensure it would hold up to the level of scrutiny it is likely going to get via defense attorney.

    This guy looks so familiar. I’ve seen him around west seattle before. The tattoos make him hard to forget.

    Judges now need Probable Cause. Reasonable Suspicion doesn’t cut it anymore. ExampleGuy walking on lawn  with house window open behind him = reasonable suspicion. Guy crawling out window with laptop in hand = probable cause. Basically you have to catch them in the act these days.

    I remembered where I saw him from. He was walking on Delridge a while back near Brandon street sw late at night. His tattoos made him stand out even late at night. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
