Suspect(s) slammed a white Chevy Cruz into an auto detail shop in the 2200 block 120th Ave NE just before 10:30 pm Monday, February 14. Another suspect arrived in a separate vehicle, then the suspects entered the shop, and one fled in a stolen Porsche. Another suspect took off in the Chevy that they used to break into the building, and the third suspect sped away in the third car. A total of three vehicles were involved, two that the suspects arrived in and one that was stolen.
A short time later, Washington State Patrol responded to a single-car crash involving the Porsche near NE 8th St and the northbound I-405 onramp. Troopers located a 31-year-old male and arrested him in connection with the car theft.
When officers ran the plates of the Chevy Cruz, they learned Fife PD had just impounded it after it was used to ram into a dealership in that city. The suspects fled that scene on foot.
We are still searching for at least two suspects. The investigation is ongoing.
