Alleged drug dealer arrested for homicide

Detectives arrested a 31-year-old Renton man accused of supplying fentanyl-laced drugs to a 26-year-old Bellevue woman. The woman was discovered deceased in her Bellevue apartment on June 18, 2020.

Lab results showed the small number of blue M30 Oxycodone pills next to her bed were fentanyl; there wasn’t any oxycodone in the pills. The King County Medical Examiner listed the victim’s cause of death as acute combined drug intoxication, including fentanyl and alcohol.

“These are challenging cases to prove, but our detectives are meticulous and determined,” commented Assistant Chief Wendell Shirley. “They were able to connect the drugs that killed the victim to the alleged dealer and show that he knew they were not legitimate prescription drugs, despite telling the victim they were.”

Detectives arrested the 31-year-old late Wednesday, June 9, 2021, in Renton, and the judge set his bail at $500,000. “We want to send a clear message that we will pursue every lead and use every tool available to track down those selling these dangerous and illegal drugs and hold them accountable,” added Shirley. This is the second suspect in Bellevue to be charged with Substance Abuse Homicide this year.

Officials are seeing an alarming increase in fentanyl in our communities. The drug is 50-times more addictive than heroin and can be lethal in minuscule amounts. In the past five years, King County has seen a nearly 650% increase in fentanyl-related deaths. In Bellevue, there were eight fentanyl-related deaths in 2020 and eight already in 2021.

Public health officials encourage anyone who knows or suspects someone may be using to have naloxone (Narcan) on hand. It’s available at most pharmacies.  For more information about fentanyl, visit Public Health – Seattle & King County.

The victim was driving through the parking lot, looking for a place to sleep.  While driving, the victim fell asleep at the wheel, drove over a planter, and struck the suspect’s vehicle in a parking stall.  The suspect was in his vehicle sleeping and was awakened by the collision.  The suspect exited his vehicle, approached the victim’s vehicle, and started to punch the victim in the face while he was still seated in his car.  The victim grabbed his handgun from the glove box, which made the suspect back off until police arrived.  It is noted, the victim claimed he grabbed his handgun because the suspect was hitting him, and the suspect claimed he punched the victim because he saw the victim going for a handgun.  Either way, the victim’s face was very bloody, and he was taken to the hospital for a fractured orbital socket.  Both the victim and suspect were cooperative with police and claimed they did not know each other.  Additionally, the nearby independent reporting party corroborated the events of the incident. The handgun was entered into the property room since it did not have a serial number (blank, not scratched off).  The victim did not want to press charges against the suspect.  An assault report and collision report was taken to document the incident.

Car thief, robbery suspect arrested twice for similar crimes

A 20-year-old Bellevue man is suspected of assaulting a valet attendant about 9:00 am in the 1100 block 108th Ave NE and stealing a red Camaro. The valet says the suspect shoved him to the ground, stole the car keys, and fled. Police spotted the stolen vehicle driving recklessly, and when the suspect’s car reached speeds in excess of 85 mph, officers did not pursue it.

Shortly after, the suspect collided with another vehicle near BelRed Road and NE 24th St.  Luckily, no one was injured in the collision. The suspect abandoned the Camaro and fled on foot.  King County Sheriff’s Guardian One, King County K9, and Redmond police all assisted in the search.

About 45 minutes later, officers spotted the suspect running near BelRed Road and 124th Ave NE.  Two Bellevue motorcycle officers quickly arrived and arrested the suspect after a short foot chase. Two police officers suffered minor injuries.  The suspect was not injured.

This is the second time in less than a month Bellevue police have arrested this suspect for similar crimes.  May 13, 2021, this 20-year-old Bellevue resident was charged with two counts Attempted Robbery 1st Degree after trying to steal two cars in north Bellevue in the early morning hours. Officers located the suspect in a storm drainage pond near SR-520, and he was booked into jail.  The suspect posted his $50,000 bail six days later and was released. 

He was arrested again this morning and booked into the King County Jail on investigation of Robbery 2nd Degree, Theft of Motor Vehicle, Eluding, Resisting Arrest, Obstructing, and Hit & Run.

“This case is extremely disturbing, both in the vast number of images and in the severity of the depictions,” stated Captain Debbie Ingram. “In this investigation alone, there are more than 800 minor victims.” “These children suffer tremendously in producing this material. They are victimized again every time the material is viewed. Our detectives did an outstanding job investigating and building this case against the suspect,” Ingram added.

The King County Prosecutor has charged Dobson with Dealing in Depictions of Minor Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct in the First Degree and Possession of Depictions of Minor Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct in the First Degree. He’s currently in the King County Jail on $30,000 bail. His arraignment is scheduled for June 3, 2021.

Bellevue couple falls victim to deportation scam

Police are investigating a scam involving an elderly Bellevue couple who lost $1,000,000 to fraud. Investigators say the couple received a phone call claiming the couple sent fake vaccines overseas and that they were going to be sued. The couple protested they weren’t the senders and the scammer said to file a police report to “prove their innocence.” The couple then received a call from someone claiming to be a police officer in China threatening to arrest and deport them to China.

The couple wired money as directed, but the scammers said that wasn’t enough and again threatened them with deportation, so they wired more money. The scammers were in Singapore and spoke the couple’s native language, Mandarin. “This elaborate fraud preys on the victim’s vulnerabilities to devastating effect,” said Major Travess Forbush. “We cannot emphasize enough that the police will never contact you and ask for money instead of being arrested or deportation.”

This is the second fraud case like this in the region. The other case involves a $750,000 loss to theft.

Tell friends, loved ones, and neighbors to always hang up on callers claiming to be government officials asking for money. Also, delete all similar emails or emails saying you’ll receive money by sending your personal information. If you think there’s a chance something might be legitimate, call your local authorities or agency and verify it before ever sending any money or gift cards.

 NARRATIVE

A suspect pushed the mother of his child to the ground in Seattle, causing her pain.  The victim was with her 10-year-old son at the time, so she took him and returned to Bellevue. The suspect followed them to their apartment and blocked their car in. The victim called the police. Officers developed probable cause and arrested the male. Seattle did not have officers available to respond, so they requested Bellevue book the subject into jail, and they would submit charging documents to complete the case.

 

Early morning crime spree suspect captured

Just after 5:00 am Thursday, a store employee in the 2600 block Bellevue Way NE reported an attempted carjacking and assault. He says someone opened his car door, pulled him from the vehicle, and punched him repeatedly in the face. The victim then says the 20-year-old suspect got in the vehicle but didn’t know how to start the car. The suspect reportedly left the vehicle, punched the victim several times more, threw him to the ground, and demanded his keys. When the victim told him they were in the car, the suspect fled, leaving behind his sweatshirt.

Victim’s car and the suspect’s sweatshirt

As officers set a perimeter, another assault call came in nearby in the 10400 block NE 32nd Pl. Officers found a man bleeding from his head and with multiple abrasions. This victim says he was taking out the trash when someone jumped him from behind and violently attacked him. The victim says the suspect was grabbing for his keys and eventually attempted to open the doors to a vehicle. When he failed, he fled the area.

Retention pond where the suspect was captured

Both Bellevue and King County Sheriff’s K9 units arrived and quickly searched the area.  A short time later, King County’s K9 located the suspect in a retention pond east of Bellevue Way NE on SR 520.

Officers transported the suspect to the hospital due to his high level of intoxication.  Once he was medically cleared, he was booked into jail on investigation of two counts Robbery 2.
