Seattle Police arrested a 23-year-old man and 16-year-old male in Kent wanted on felony warrants. Officers also recovered multiple guns.
At about 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 16 officers observed a 23-year-old male suspect arrive in a black Mercedes in the 400 block of South 262nd Street in Kent, according to the Aug. 17 Seattle Police Blotter. Seattle Police reported they obtained information regarding the whereabouts of the adult suspect that led them to Kent.
As police continued their surveillance of the suspect, a 16-year-old male was recognized to be a wanted person with two outstanding felony warrants. Before contact was made with the subjects, police observed the juvenile suspect to be armed.
Soon after, the vehicle now occupied with four subjects, left the area and stopped at a nearby business in the 1200 block of Central Avenue North, according to Seattle Police. When the juvenile suspect driver entered the business, police approached the vehicle and detained all the occupants.
The juvenile suspect spotted police as he exited from the business and fled from the location. A foot pursuit ensued and shortly after the fleeing suspect was taken into custody.
Police identified the other two subjects in the vehicle and released them from the scene, according to the police blotter.
A search of the adult suspect reportedly resulted in the recovery of an extended Glock pistol magazine. With further investigation, three firearms were observed in the vehicle. The vehicle was impounded and a search warrant was obtained to retrieve the firearms, according to police.
The 23-year-old suspect was booked into King County jail for his felony harassment warrant and investigation of unlawful possession of a firearm. The juvenile was booked into the King County Child and Family Justice Center in Seattle for his two felony warrants and investigation of an additional charge of unlawful possession of a firearm.
