WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Police release video of arrests in April incident

That’s an edited video released by Seattle Police tonight showing two arrests – one following a foot pursuit that crossed SW Roxbury at one point – following an incident two weeks ago at the Walgreens in South Delridge. The accompanying SPD Blotter post says it happened the evening of April 28; police were flagged down about a cash-register theft at the store, and as the video shows, they were there as a 20-year-old woman walked out of the store holding the stolen register; it took a while longer to arrest the 40-year-old man they say was with her – the video shows him initially walking away, unchallenged. Police say both were booked into jail that night, the woman for theft and unlawful gun possession, the man for obstructing a law enforcement officer and “a previous incident of domestic violence.” We don’t know whether either was subsequently charged, as we won’t be able to get their names until tomorrow.

    Lots of quick edits and cuts on this one. Weird.

      Nothing weird about it at all. I for one am LOVING seeing our cops hook up these scumbags.

    It’s hard to believe how much stress the police are under.  Kudos for their actions.

    I just wanted everyone to know it wasn’t me either.

    Great work SPD. Thank you.

    I’m never surprised anymore at what happens to some people in the human race. There are so many factors that can cause young people to turn their lives into such chaos.But running with your pants hanging low on your behind never ever works. EVER.

    Thank goodness for body worn cameras. Complaints against police have dropped dramatically, along with lawsuits. Its cause for celebration.

    Good thing the police must have been nearby in the area to actually arrive in front of the store as the yellow coat lady, and accomplice, comes out toting the cash register – perfect timing. Looks like the police said something to her, she pauses and seems to be indicating ‘who? me?’ and hands over the cash register. The whole thing almost seems staged… so nutty it doesn’t seem real.

    Kudos to the police!  Seriously, toting the whole dang cash register out of the store?  She must have thought that was a lesser crime than … what.  Again, thank you to SPD.
