A warrant arrest in Capitol Hill on Monday produced a cache of stolen bank cards and cellphones, many having been stolen in recent car prowls around the city, as well as keys and electronic device, according to the Seattle Police Department.
SPD reports two bike officers were patrolling in the 800 block of East Olive Way around 2:30 p.m. March 20 when they spotted a 37-year-old man known to have a misdemeanor warrant.
A search of the man’s pockets uncovered two debit cards, several sets of house and vehicle keys. SPD reports the man was also found in possession of three laptops, 14 cellphones, five MP3 players, nine identification and credit cards, financial documents and mail addressed to residents in Capitol Hill, Sammamish, Bellevue and Vashon Island.
Police report several of the items were confirmed to have been stolen in vehicle prowls in Capitol Hill and Queen Anne.
The suspect had to be taken to Harborview Medical Center following his arrest, according to SPD, because he claimed he’d swallowed heroin. He was cleared and then booked in King County Jail for possession of stolen property and his warrant.
