Bellevue police, with assistance from Seattle police, arrested 22-year-old Patrick Thomas in Seattle yesterday. Thomas, wanted in connection with a series of burglaries in Bellevue and neighboring cities, fled when he spotted officers. As he took off, he attempted to dump a stolen loaded pistol in a car. He was finally captured with the help of Seattle K9, the Gun Violence Reduction Unit, and Seattle SWAT.
