U.S — A 23-year-old man and a 16-year-old male wanted on felony charges were apprehended in Kent by Seattle Police. Multiple firearms were also retrieved by police. According to the Seattle Police Blotter for the day of August 17th, an officer on the 400 block of South 262nd Street in Kent saw a 23-year-old male suspect come in a black Mercedes at around 2 p.m. on Wednesday, August 16th. According to the Seattle Police Department, they tracked down the adult suspect to Kent according to information they got.
A 16-year-old male was identified by police as a suspect who was wanted for two separate criminal offences. The cops saw that the juvenile suspect was armed before they even made contact with them. Police in Seattle said that shortly after, with four people inside, the car drove off and pulled into a nearby store on the 1200 block of Central Avenue North. As soon as the vehicle driven by the suspected minor entered the establishment, police officers approached and seized the driver and all passengers.
The teen suspect saw the police as he was leaving the store and ran away. The fleeing suspect was given chase on foot and eventually apprehended. According to the police blotter, officers were able to positively identify the other two occupants of the car and let them leave the area.
According to reports, an extended Glock pistol magazine was found during a check of the adult suspect. Three guns were discovered after searching the vehicle. Police say they had to get a search warrant and seize the car to get their hands on the weapons.
The 23-year-old suspect has a felony harassment warrant and is being investigated for unauthorised possession of a firearm, so he was taken into custody in King County. The teen had two felony warrants, so he was sent to the King County Child and Family Justice Centre in Seattle, where they also looked into a possible allegation of unlawful possession of a firearm.
