Bellevue detectives arrest armed robbery suspect

ChipotleBellevue detectives arrested 25-year-old DeShaun Nabors at his Puyallup in connection with the armed robbery of the Bellevue Chipotle restaurant at Crossroads Mall on October 27, 2019.  Detectives say Nabors was identified by restaurant management as a former Chipotle employee.  Surveillance allowed investigators to put Nabors and his girlfriend’s car in the area of the Chipotle restaurant at the time of the robbery.

OBFChipotleGunA search warrant on the home produced among other things a gun, coin wrappers and a blue glove, like the gloves Nabors used in the robbery.  Detectives say Nabors is a suspect in at least two other similar robberies and are working together with those jurisdictions.

Case # 19-57214

12 arrested in Bellevue vice sting

Bellevue Detectives arrested 12 men for patronizing a prostitute in a two-day undercover vice operation. The sting sends a deliberate message to those seeking to buy sex according to Captain Dave Sanabria, “We don’t want you patronizing a prostitute at all, and we absolutely don’t want you doing it in Bellevue.”

Vice sting operation

Throughout the operation, 66 men responded to the vice detective’s ads on known prostitution websites. Of the 12 arrested, one was from Bellevue, many others drove to Bellevue from neighboring cities, and one was on business from Georgia. There would have been 13 arrests if the person had been able to find the hotel. One suspect even arrived in a Ferrari.

“Prostitution is not a victimless crime,” Sanabria said. “The majority of the women become victims of rape, robbery, and assault. Most are also coerced or forced to continue in the sex trade by a pimp and their economic circumstances.”

Those arrested could also face new consequences. In addition to facing a misdemeanor charge of Patronizing a Prostitute, the Bellevue city prosecutor will now recommend suspects attend a mandatory ten-week Stopping Sexual Exploitation program through Seattle Against Slavery.

“Our goal is for these subjects to stop soliciting prostitutes,” Sanabria explains. “This program gives them the time, ten weeks, and the education to understand how sexually exploiting women causes them harm, plus they’ll learn tools to create healthy relationships in their own lives.”

 

Sky Metalwala still missing 8 years later

It’s been eight years, and still no trace of Sky Metalwala. Sky was just 2-years-old when he vanished from his mother’s vehicle on November 6, 2011. Julia Biryukova says she left Sky in her car after it ran out of gas in Bellevue, and that’s when he disappeared.

A police investigation revealed inaccuracies in Julia’s statement, including the fact that her car was not out of gas and had no mechanical problems. Julia spoke with investigators the day she reported her son missing but has since refused to participate in the police investigation.

“Our detectives still want to talk with Julia Biryukova. We believe she knows what happened to Sky,” said Chief Steve Mylett. “We will never forget Sky, and we will not stop looking for him. This is very much an open investigation,” the Chief added. “Someone somewhere knows something. Please come forward and tell us.”

To date, investigators with the Bellevue Police Department, The FBI, and Redmond Police Department have pursued over 2,500 tips and spent more than 14,000 hours investigating this case. To date, the cost has been over two million dollars.

The Chief says he is undeterred. “I will spend any amount of money and go anywhere if our efforts result in finding Sky. He deserves that.”

Bellevue vice unit employs unique method to aid sex trafficking victims

Bellevue vice detectives are going straight to the source in an effort to help sex workers. The detectives joined a prostitution chat forum as BPD Vice.  The post states in part, “This is not a setup… it’s an attempt to break down barriers that may prevent individuals from reporting crimes against them.”

Many times, providers are afraid to contact law enforcement even if they are a victim of a violent crime.  They fear they will be in trouble. Bellevue police want to assure them; they won’t. “It’s never OK for anyone to be a victim of crime. If you are a victim of robbery, rape, assault, or sex trafficking, please report it. We are here to help but can’t if we don’t know about it,” said Captain David Sanabria.

Since the detective joined the forum, the post has received a lot of attention. One longtime provider has already contacted the vice unit and now encourages others on the forum to do the same.

Even self-proclaimed ‘hobbyists,’ or those seeking services, are reacting to the post.

This innovative idea is also receiving national attention and high praise. “We have never seen an agency reach out directly online to offer support for victims of human trafficking. The reaction has reverberated far from Washington state. This is something potential victims across the country saw,” said CEO Rob Spectre of ChildSafe.AI, a company that creates software to help law enforcement reduce child sex trafficking. “Some of these vulnerable communities can seem like a lost cause,” Spectre adds. “The Bellevue vice unit’s effort transcends that cynicism and shows law enforcement can take the first step to build a different relationship.”

“Will there be skeptics?  Undoubtedly.  But if this effort saves one person or starts one conversation that helps, then it will be a success,” Sanabria adds.

If you or someone you know is a sex trade victim, please contact our vice unit at VICEHT@Bellevuewa.gov.

Bellevue officers help man find housing

57-year-old Brid lived out of a camper in Bellevue for four years.  He was frustrated and feeling hopeless. “I couldn’t find a place to live, and I couldn’t get help. It’s almost impossible for a single male out there. I felt like all I did was fill out forms and wait. I waited many years, and then I met Officers Neese and Wallace.”

Brid and Officer Darlene Wallace

Bellevue Officers Greg Neese and Darlene Wallace both issued warnings and ticketed Brid’s vehicles many times over the years. They even had his vehicles towed, but always offered hope and a connection to resources. “Over the years as I got to know Brid, he genuinely wanted help,” said Officer Wallace.  “I got him in touch with The Sofia Way, with someone who specializes in helping car campers.  But credit goes to Brid for being willing to do the work to get off the streets,” Wallace says.

Officer Neese agrees Brid’s desire to change was genuine. “Brid admitted where he made mistakes and worked on his sobriety. I was happy to support him any way I could.  I helped him get rid of some 20-year-old warrants. I even gave him a generator to keep him going.”

Eventually, The Sophia Way helped Brid move into Camp Second Chance, a ‘tiny home’

homeless encampment. Brid credits the Bellevue officers for changing his life. “If it weren’t for Officers Neese and Wallace, I never would have found this place. They visited me; they stood up for me and kept me safe. They got me the help I needed.”

Brid’s currently in therapy and has been off drugs for several years. He’s working fulltime, has reconnected with his family and is looking to move into an apartment. Brid says, “I never knew life could be this good. I’m hopeful and thankful to Bellevue PD.”

Both officers Wallace and Neese say help is available for anyone who wants it, whether it’s housing, substance abuse or other social service needs.  And Bellevue officers are available to help make that connection.
