CRIME WATCH FOLLOWUP: ‘Forgot my cigarettes’ car-theft suspect charged

Another West Seattle Crime Watch followup: Four weeks ago, we reported on the arrest of a man who tried to deny he was involved with a stolen car – until he told police he needed to get his cigarettes out of it. At the time, we weren’t able to get the 29-year-old suspect’s name, so we couldn’t track the case. But today we learned from the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office that they filed two felony charges against the suspect, Jordan W. George. He is charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and unlawful gun possession. As we mentioned in our previous report, police found a gun inside the car; the gun, like the car, turned out to be stolen. George is not allowed to be in possession of firearms, because he has felony convictions – five in the past 13 years, including robbery, burglary, and auto theft. He remains in jail, bail set at $15,000, and is to be arraigned tomorrow.

    Wait! What?  Five felony convictions in the last 13 years and he’s only 29?

      Actually, sorry, 14 years (will fix) – first one listed was in March 2008, when he would have been 14.

      And to add insult to injury, bond set at only $15,000. These people need to be removed from society until there’s confidence they can rejoin it.

    “These aren’t my pants.” Favorite “COPS” line ever. Followed by “They don’t know how you are Brandy”

    It’s almost like just locking these losers up just trains them to be better losers., maybe there is a better way to prevent and handle crime? Are the discipline and punish crowd noticing this?

Sorry, comment time is over.
