Bellevue Police hire new Assistant Chief

Bellevue police have a new assistant chief. Chief Steve Mylett swore in Wendell J. Shirley Monday, March 8, 2021.

Shirley joins BPD after a nearly 26-year career with the Santa Monica Police Department, where he rose to the rank of Captain. Chief Shirley retired from SMPD in 2019. As he watched the protests over social justice and police reform throughout 2020, he felt his experience and success in building better relationships with the community could be of service.

Bellevue Police Assistant Chief Wendell Shirley

“I spent the bulk of my career helping build relationships between the police and the community,” Chief Shirley said. “I pride myself on my track record of developing relationships based on trust, honesty, and mutual respect. There’s certainly a lot of work to do, and I firmly believe my experience, training, and passion will be a valuable asset to Bellevue,” Shirley explained.

Shirley says he chose Bellevue after researching the area and speaking with Chief Mylett. “Bellevue is a beautiful city with an outstanding police department. The Chief’s philosophy and the City’s leadership all align with my values.  I’m excited and humbled by this opportunity.”

“We had several highly qualified candidates for the assistant chief position,” said Chief Mylett. “But it quickly became evident Chief Shirley had the experience and qualities that we were looking for.” Chief Mylett pointed to Shirley’s vast police experience and the leadership roles he embraced both in the police department and the community.

Specifically, one of his passions is working with and mentoring our youth. Born and raised by his grandparents in Watts, CA, he saw firsthand the challenges that many of our youth and family’s face on a daily basis. Nevertheless, this taught him the value of hard work and education. “Shirley said, thinking back on his upbringing. “He hopes his story can inspire others to reach their highest potential, regardless of their circumstances.”

Chief Shirley fills a position left vacant when Carl Kleinknecht retired last year.  He will oversee the Operations Division at BPD.

Convicted felon arrested, four guns and ammo confiscated

A 35-year-old man is in jail following an investigation that led to the recovery of three AR-15 style rifles, a shotgun, gun holster, and hundreds of ammunition rounds, including ten loaded or partially loaded magazines.

The investigation was initiated with a 911 report of a possible domestic disturbance with a firearm.

When officers arrived at the residence in the 10700 block NE 10th St. on March 2, 2021, the subject denied any altercation.  Per protocol, officers cleared the residence to ensure no one was injured or in danger. During the sweep of the apartment, officers noticed several AR-15 style guns, ammunition, and a bulletproof vest in plain sight. The occupants denied there were weapons in the residence, and their identification returned clear. Given that no crime could be documented, officers left.

Upon further investigation, officers determined the male subject had given an alias, and when his true identity was discovered, officers learned he was a convicted felon.  It is illegal for convicted felons to possess firearms. Detectives and SWAT were called to assist with the arrest due to the large number of weapons in the apartment.

Detectives watched the suspect leave his apartment, and the SWAT team was able to make a traffic stop and arrest the suspect without incident. “This is outstanding work by our patrol officers, detectives, and SWAT,” said Investigations Major Travess Forbush. “They worked all night to correctly identify this convicted felon and remove the unlawfully possessed weapons.”

The suspect has been booked into jail on four counts of Unlawful Possession of Firearms.  Additional charges are pending.

Case # 21-10415  

Attempted murder suspect behind bars

Detectives took a 35-year-old suspect in an attempted murder in Bellevue into custody without incident on March 2, 2021.  The dangerous and violent suspect was apprehended outside his residence in the 3000 block Bellevue Way NE.

The suspect allegedly severely beat a 29-year-old man at a Mini-mart in the 11600 block NE 8th St. on February 24. The suspect is seen on camera repeatedly hitting the victim in the face and stomping on his head. The suspect left in a black vehicle, then returned a minute later to fill up with gasoline. Detectives are still investigating what prompted the beating, but there is evidence the parties were aware of each other. This was not a random attack.

The victim suffered severe head and face injuries, requiring hospitalization. He laid injured on the ground for about 30 minutes until a customer arrived and called for help.

Investigators developed evidence and probable cause to arrest the suspect. Given the violent nature of the crime, the Bellevue SWAT team accompanied detectives for the arrest. The team prepared a plan for the arrest and quickly adjusted when the suspect couldn’t be positively identified because he was wearing a mask.

The SWAT team then simply approached the suspect in the parking lot. When the suspect saw the officers, he ran right into a team of other officers.  The result was a peaceful surrender, and no force was used.

The suspect was arrested on investigation of Attempted Murder, Assault 1, and Assault 2.  Other charges are pending.
