Bellevue man arrested for child porn, police increase emphasis on child sex predators

Police Patch Color

Bellevue Special Assault detectives arrested a 64-year-old Bellevue man on child pornography charges early Wednesday morning. The arrest comes after a several month-long investigation prompted by a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Bellevue detectives, with assistance from the Seattle Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, served a search warrant on the suspect’s apartment in the 10700 Block NE 4th St. They seized a computer and other electronic devices. 

 Wednesday’s arrest is the second significant bust in just over a month. On July 31st, detectives with the Special Assault Unit also arrested 23-year-old Elliott Butterworth on child pornography charges. After executing a search warrant in the 10200 Block SE 3rd St., detectives confiscated eight computers, several phones, and multiple storage devices. King County Prosecutors charged Butterworth with dealing and possession of child pornography. 

In response to an increase in the number of child pornography complaints, Bellevue Police are dedicating additional resources and officer training to crack down on child sex predators. “Child pornographers profoundly damage these children through sexual exploitation and abuse. Some of the victims are as young as infants, and the majority are not even 12-years-old,” explains Captain of Investigations Travess Forbush. “The Bellevue Police Department is expanding its efforts to crack down on these horrific crimes. The increase in investigative hours will lead to more search warrants and arrests,” Forbush adds.

Investigators say it’s challenging to identify those who are trafficking in child pornography as they are often doing business on the dark web. If anyone ever sees disturbing images of children, you are asked to call 911 or report it online on the Bellevue Police website.

Armed car prowl suspect dies of a self-inflicted gunshot wound

28-year-old Adam Gua was found dead in a Seattle apartment this morning after a standoff with Seattle Police.  Gua was wanted in connection with a car prowl in Bellevue and for shooting at a Bellevue police officer on August 30th.

Bellevue police need help locating a dangerous armed car prowl suspect

Bellevue officers confronted two car prowl suspects in the past week; both had guns, and one fired his weapon. On August 29th, an officer was responding to a car prowl in progress in the area of 1600 184th Ave NE. As the officer approached the suspect, he ran away and fired a shot back at the officer. No one was injured, and investigators did find a spent bullet casing, although they did not recover the gun. K9 search teams, King County Sheriff’s Office Guardian One, Kirkland PD, Clyde Hill PD, and Redmond PD all assisted in the search but were unable to locate the suspect.

Suspect Adam Anthony Gua

Detectives have identified the suspect as 28-year-old Adam Anthony Gua. Gua has numerous felony and misdemeanor warrants for his arrest.  Gua is 5’10”, weighs 150 pounds, has reddish-brown hair and sometimes wears glasses. If you see him or know where he is, please call 911.

Bellevue bike officers responded to another car prowl call the day before near 500 Bellevue Way NE. The officers asked the first suspect to step out of the car, but he took off on foot. The suspected pulled a handgun out of his waistband and threw it as he continued to flee. He was eventually pepper-sprayed and apprehended, and investigators recovered the stolen gun. Officers arrested the second suspect as well.

These two instances show how dangerous these criminals can be and how important it is not to approach them.  Please call 911 and don’t confront these suspects yourself.  As a reminder, don’t leave any valuables in your vehicle, especially in plain sight, and be sure to lock your doors.  Home surveillance video has also proven to be a big help in identifying suspects.

Bellevue’s School Resource Officers – keeping kids safe

All six Bellevue police officers assigned to Bellevue’s middle and high schools are back on campus and ready for the new year. The school resource officers, or SROs, help create a safe environment in our schools, but at times, they also double up as counselors, confidantes, educators, and even social workers.  “I truly love being an SRO and can honestly show up to school with a smile on my face each day. Building relationships with students and keeping them safe are my priorities. This may be the first time a kid has had any contact with a police officer. I get to be that ‘first impression’ for them,” says Officer Jennifer Sweeney.

SRO Jennifer Sweeney

Officer Sweeney is currently assigned to Sammamish High School and knows it’s not always an easy job. “I sometimes have to work hard to gain their trust and respect. This may be from a bad experience or something they may have heard or seen. I work on it every day. I strive to be someone they can trust and a role model for our future law enforcement brothers and sisters.”

SRO David Wright

The SROs assist the schools with any criminal activity, building security, and overall safety concerns. Plus, in today’s environment, having a police presence and that daily interaction with kids is comforting for parents, students, teachers, and school officials.  “I love this age group. They still ask for stickers, they’re just awesome!” says Officer David Wright, who is the SRO at both Odle and Tillicum Middle Schools. “Many times, if we can interact with the kids early on, it only takes one conversation to correct their behavior. Especially when the parents are involved, the students respond well.”

The SROs are also frequent guest speakers in classrooms. They help educate students on everything from traffic stops, social media, and making smart choices.  Each of the four high schools has a dedicated SRO who is on campus four days a week. Two SROs share duties at the middle and Choice schools.
