Did you hear the booms? Raid this morning linked to Seattle Police case
This morning we happened onto an online discussion of early morning gunshot/explosion-type noises just east of White Center. Following up to see what we could find out, King County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. BJ Myers, who is currently serving as its media-relations officer, told us it was a Seattle Police raid, not KCSO. We then took our inquiry to SPD, which has just published details to its online “blotter”:
A cello taken in a Seattle break-in was just one of the hundreds of suspected stolen items found by Seattle police Thursday morning inside a Burien home.
SPD’s Major Crimes Task Force has been on the trail of a ring of burglars, suspected of targeting homes in North Seattle, Queen Anne and Magnolia. This morning, around 7 AM, SPD SWAT served a warrant at the home in the 12000 block of 1st Avenue S., where police found “a ton of stolen stuff,” according to Major Crimes Task Force Captain Eric Sano.
Police arrested two people inside the home for warrants, and are now investigating and sorting through evidence. Police believe some items found inside the homes may have been taken in unreported break-ins.
We’ll have more updates as the case develops.
P.S. If you’re interested in general crime/safety news from the unincorporated area, don’t miss the North Highline Unincorporated Area Council meeting tonight at 7 pm, at the NH Fire District HQ, 1243 SW 112th.

Was the Burien Police notified and involved?
Seattle Police were outside their jurisdiction!

WC: I believe SPD was involved because the crimes were committed in Seattle.

The booms were not at 7am. It was more like 5:45am. I live four blocks away and could hear the demands for the suspects to “come out of the house” as well as two booms about 5-10 minutes apart. I felt terrible for any people and animals nearby.

Great news and good job to all law enforcement involved. An early morning startle and loud noise are worth catching these thugs in my opinion.

5:45 is accurate. Live on Occidental…they shook the house! Way to go PD. Gotta love karma!
