Dangerous burglary crew busted; two suspects at large

Burglary suspect Randy Andrews
Burglary suspect Patrick Thomas

Bellevue Detectives need the public’s help locating two violent offenders. 22-year-old Patrick Thomas and 21-year-old Randy Andrews both have $50,000 warrants for their arrest in connection with several Bellevue burglaries.  21-year-old Dajohntae Richard and 22-year-old Timothy Miller have already been arrested.

During the investigation, detectives learned that this crew was involved in multiple burglaries in Bellevue and King County. On August 19th, 2021, Detectives received information the crew was in the Somerset area of Bellevue. They located Richard, Miller, and Thomas as they left the area after allegedly burglarizing a home and followed them to Fred Meyer.  Detectives arrested Richard and Miller; Thomas escaped the area on foot.

During a search of their vehicle, detectives recovered a loaded .45 semi-automatic 1911-style pistol.

Recovered .45 semi-automatic pistol

“The hammer was cocked, and there was a live round chambered in the barrel,” stated Captain Shelby Shearer. “We are very concerned these individuals will escalate the violence if confronted, and we need to get them off the streets.”

Because the suspects were armed in their immediate flight from the Bellevue burglary on August 19th, 2021, detectives referred the more serious charge of Burglary 1st degree to the King County Prosecutor’s Office.  This is a class A felony, instead of Residential burglary, a class B felony.

Detectives searched Richard’s residence and vehicle and recovered evidence from multiple burglaries, including Bellevue, Federal Way, Kirkland, and Lake Forest Park.  “None of these suspects live in Bellevue. Instead, these violent career criminals purposely traveled to Bellevue on multiple occasions within the last month to commit crimes and then left the area”, said Shearer. “Our detectives worked tirelessly to investigate these crimes and hold them accountable for their actions.”

If you know where officers can find either Andrews or Thomas, submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound by texting the information through the P3 Tips app or call 1-800-222-TIPS(8477). Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 for the tip that leads to an arrest.

Loud muffler emphasis patrols

BPD officers are conducting a special emphasis patrol this summer to crack down on loud mufflers. These modified exhaust systems generate numerous complaints. “These cars are not just noisy; they’re a huge disruption to people’s lives and their illegal,” explained Captain Joe Nault. “We are dedicating significant resources to educate and cite drivers who violate the law.”

Washington state law makes it illegal to be without or modify an exhaust system to amplify or increase the noise emitted by an engine.

One Friday evening alone, August 6th, officers cited 11 vehicles for modified exhaust, including a 55 Bel Air for an incomplete exhaust system, a couple Subaru’s and a Nissan all for excessively revving the engine with a modified muffler. Officers also cited a 19-year-old for modified exhaust, negligent driving, and no insurance when he sped up Bellevue Way and cut off another driver. One driver was cited for DUI.

“While we are putting extra patrols out to cite those with modified mufflers this summer, this is a year-round problem, and we will continue to cite for modified exhaust systems. So far this year, our officers have issued 237 citations,” said Nault.

The fines escalate for each ticket. The fine for the first offense is $149, $190 for the second, and $231 for the third offense.

近期频繁出现诈骗, 偷盗和个人信息盗窃的案件. 诈骗方以中国政府工作人员的名义, 威胁受害者汇款解决问题.  诈骗手法通常包括汇款, 电子礼品卡和现金交易.

在之前的一起案件中,诈骗方假冒中国警方并出示了伪造证件, 进行诈骗活动.

如果有人声称他们是海外政府工作人员并索要钱财, 请务必留意. 在您不能确认是否遇到诈骗情况时, 请及时拨打咨询您所在地方当局的警察.

We are seeing an increase in fraud, theft, and ID theft cases involving people claiming to be Chinese government officials.  The suspects contact the victim and claim they are in trouble and must pay money to fix the problem.  The scams take many forms, wiring money, purchasing and electronically sending gift cards, or telling someone to withdraw money and hand it over. 

In one case, the suspects provided official-looking credentials to prove they were Chinese police officers, but they weren’t.  These are scams! Please do not reply or cooperate with anyone claiming to be an overseas official asking you for money. Instead, call your local police department, and they will check it out.  It is better to take the time to verify than to be out thousands of dollars.

Message from the Chief about recent law changes and policing

Dear Bellevue Community,

Recent mandated police reforms passed by the Legislature in Washington state reflect changing societal expectations on the role of law enforcement and focus on reducing police interactions that may result in potential uses of force by law enforcement. 

Several new laws that govern policing will go into effect Sunday, July 25, 2021. The bills create a civil standard that limits the circumstances in which physical force and deadly force may be used. In addition, they prohibit the procurement or use of certain military equipment and impose new restrictions on some police tactics, including neck restraints, no-knock warrants and vehicle pursuits. The legislation also requires officers to intervene in and report any out-of-policy force they witness. While some of the laws do impact how officers will respond to certain calls, they will not affect the dedication of the men and women of the Bellevue Police Department to deliver first-class service.

We will continue to respond to all calls for service. We will investigate and document all crimes in accordance with state law.

The Bellevue Police Department continually evaluates and reforms all policies to ensure they align with best practices and reflect community input. For this reason, many aspects of the new laws will not impact Bellevue police, as our policies are already in compliance. However, several new requirements will affect policing.

House Bill 1310 limits when an officer can use “physical force” when investigating criminal conduct and requires officers to use a reasonable duty of care prior to using physical force. Under this new law, officers may not use physical force to forcibly detain a person for mere suspicion of a crime.  Reasonable physical force may be used when necessary to make an arrest for a crime when probable cause has been established, a higher standard than reasonable suspicion, or if there is an imminent threat of bodily injury to the officer or another.  This means our officers may take additional investigative steps prior to making a physical arrest for a crime, which may take additional time.  

Similarly, officers respond to many non-criminal calls. Under the new law, officers may not use physical force to transport an individual in crisis for evaluation or treatment or forcibly detain a juvenile runaway unless the person is in imminent danger of bodily harm to themselves or others or there is probable cause that a crime has been committed. Officers may rely on de-escalation skills or attempt to assist crisis responders but may have to leave a scene if there is no imminent threat to the person or others, or no crime has been committed. 

The Bellevue Police Department strongly supports decreasing potential uses of force by law enforcement. However, the new laws may alter the way in which we investigate calls for service and assist in aiding those in a mental/behavioral health crisis. As a result, there will be circumstances where officers may let a suspect go and walk away from the situation until probable cause is established for a crime to avoid having to use physical force. 

It’s important for the Bellevue community to understand these new state laws and their impact. Our officers will continue to provide professional services while working within the law.  

For more information, you can read the new bills taking effect July 25, 2021, below.

Please reach out to us and the department if you have any questions and/or concerns. We appreciate the community’s support as we continue in our mission to better serve you.  BPDChief@Bellevuewa.gov.

Sincerely,

Chief Mylett & Assistant Chief Shirley
