Gun recovered, two arrested for theft

Recovered loaded gun and ammunition

Officers recovered a loaded handgun with extra ammunition after arresting two shoplifting suspects Wednesday morning. The 35-year-old male and 34-year-old female are accused of stealing approximately $500 worth of merchandise from O’Reilly’s in Factoria, then fleeing in a stolen Dodge Charger. Detectives followed the car on traffic cameras to Marshalls on 148th Ave NE, where someone flagged officers down to report the pair stealing from that store.

Theft suspects

Officers approached the two as they left the store, the female gave up, and the male took off running. Eventually, he was taken into custody. The O’Reilly’s property was recovered and returned to the store.

Following the arrests, officers learned the male suspect is a convicted felon, and it is illegal for him to possess a firearm. He also had someone else’s social security card.

Both are suspects in thefts in Bonney Lake.
