Busted gym locker theft ring now charged in multiple states

When prolific gym locker thieves Troy Mitchell and Sydney Williams were charged with multiple felony counts of theft and identity theft in connection with dozens of locker break-ins at Bellevue gyms, it was just the tip of the iceberg. It seems the pair took their gym locker theft ring on the road.

During the investigation, Bellevue detectives tracked Mitchell and Williams around the country, committing similar thefts. As a result, both suspects are now also under investigation or charged in Oregon, Colorado, Georgia, Texas, and several cities in Minnesota.

The same detectives re-arrested Mitchell yesterday (December 12th ) on a Fugitive from Justice warrant out of Oregon, where Mitchell and Williams have been charged with 14 felony counts of aggravated theft, identity theft, burglary and credit card fraud in Washington County.

The two 50-year-old suspects’ scheme has been consistent as they traipsed around the country. They check into a gym, compromise the locks on lockers, steal credit cards, and fraudulently use them to purchase thousands of dollars in merchandise.

Mitchell is currently in the King County Jail.

Excellent police work nets armed robbery suspect

Bellevue police detectives arrested a 17-year-old armed robbery suspect in connection with two robberies set up on an internet market app this weekend. Saturday morning, the suspect posted an advertisement on the OfferUp app selling a laptop. When the victim arrived at the agreed-upon location, the suspect pulled a handgun out of his bag, demanding cash. Early Sunday morning, the exact same situation unfolded in the same place with a different victim. This time the suspect offered to sell AirPods as well as a laptop.

Bellevue patrol officers gathered critical evidence and witness statements, and detectives immediately began tracking down the suspect. With the cooperation of OfferUp, investigators were able to identify and locate the suspect within less than 36 hours after the first aggravated robbery.

The Bellevue SWAT team and detectives served a search warrant at the suspect’s residence on Sunday evening. He was taken into custody without incident and booked into the King County Youth Detention Center on charges of First Degree Robbery.

These incidents should serve as a warning to anyone buying or selling items on an internet market site such as OfferUp or Craigslist. Please remember to arrange a meeting in a very public, brightly lit location, preferably with lots of cameras, and do not go at night. Also, take someone with you and trust your gut, if it doesn’t feel right, cancel it. While the vast majority of these sales go off without a hitch, a few safety precautions will go a long way to preventing yourself from becoming a victim.
