Prolific mail thief busted

Thanks to an alert resident, patrol officers located and arrested a very busy mail thief, recovering well over 350 pieces of stolen mail.  Shortly before 4:00 am this morning, officers responded to a potential mail theft near SE 60th St and Forest Dr. SE. The caller reported the driver of a white muscle car with a loud muffler had attempted to steal her mail.

Stolen mail under a jacket on the passenger’s side floor

A patrol officer responded and combed the area, and located a vehicle matching the description that had made an illegal turn and didn’t have license plates.  The officer conducted a traffic stop, and as he identified the driver, he noticed what appeared to be a pile of mail under a coat. 

In addition to the traffic infraction, the driver was driving with a suspended license and was placed under arrest.  The 25-year-old Renton resident gave the officer permission to search the car, and the officer recovered 368 pieces of mail throughout the vehicle.  The stolen mail had addresses from Bellevue, Renton, Seattle and Federal Way. Officers also recovered a Washington driver’s license belonging to someone else and stolen credit cards. 

The suspect was booked into jail on investigation of mail theft and driving with a suspended license.

The mail will be forwarded to the United States Postal Inspection Service and return to the rightful owners.  The investigation is ongoing.

We sincerely appreciate our residents working with us and alerting us to these crimes.  This is the second mail theft bust in two nights, thanks to residents reporting suspicious activity.

$64,000 Dodge Challenger recovered in ID Theft bust

Two Detroit men are behind bars, accused of stealing the identities of twelve people and racking up some hefty charges. Detectives say the pair falsified IDs and then used them to open credit lines, purchasing a $64,000 Dodge Challenger, a $6400 gold bracelet, and various other items from two different shopping malls.

Detectives believe the two men, ages 25 and 27-years-old, flew into Seattle from Detroit during the week of April 19th, 2021.  One of the suspects attempted to purchase a $51,000 2019 Camaro from a Bellevue dealership with a counterfeit ID but failed to pick it up. The victim received a credit alert and contacted the dealership stating he did not apply for credit. The manager called Bellevue police.

Detectives quickly investigated and learned one suspect’s identity as he had used his own cellphone number. The investigation continued, and three days later, detectives watched both suspects get into a red Dodge Challenger and learned it was recently purchased. The dealership identified a photo of one of the suspects, stating he bought the Challenger using a different name with a counterfeit ID.

Detectives then watched both suspects patronize two shopping malls, purchase several high-end items, and eventually arrested both men at the Challenger following the shopping spree. Both were arrested on investigation of various charges, including Identity Theft 1st Degree and Theft of Motor Vehicle. 

After obtaining a search warrant, detectives searched the Dodge Challenger and recovered eight Washington and three Oregon counterfeit driver’s licenses, 17 new Apple iPhones, four new Apple watches, and a Costco credit card with a nearly $10,000 limit.  Detectives are notifying all 11 known victims and are investigating if there are others.

Suspected drug dealer arrested for homicide in overdose death

Detectives arrested a 26-year-old suspect drug dealer for the overdose death of his 26-year-old friend. The friend died June 12, 2020, after taking what he thought was Percocet but turned out to be fentanyl. Investigators say the victim purchased pills from the suspect the night he died. The victim and his girlfriend both consumed the pills, yet only the victim’s pill had a fatal dose of fentanyl.

“This case shows you how dangerous illegal fentanyl-laced drugs are,” warned Captain Shelby Shearer. “The victim purchased at least two pills. He took one and his girlfriend the other, and he died. You must assume that unless you get your pain medication from a pharmacy, it’s likely laced with fentanyl, and that can be deadly.”

Suspected fentanyl laced Percocet tablets

Over the past nearly eight months, detectives investigated this alleged drug dealer. Ultimately, on March 17, 2021, detectives had enough evidence for probable cause to arrest the suspect on investigation of Substance Abuse Homicide. Officers recovered ten suspected fentanyl-laced Percocet M30 pills after his arrest.  The suspect says he knew the victim because they had played football together for four years. The charges alleged the suspect kept selling fentanyl-laced pills even after his friend’s overdose death.

“Fentanyl is a crisis in our community. Recently, King County experienced its two worst weeks ever for overdose deaths. It takes about a grain of sand worth of fentanyl to kill someone. Please, don’t buy these pills off the street.  And if you know someone who is, have Narcan on hand. It may be the only way to save their lives,” Shearer added.

Even though the Washington State Supreme Court struck down the Washington law that makes simple drug possession a crime, Bellevue detectives will continue to fully investigate drug dealers.
