Bellevue Burglars Busted

This morning at 8:03 a.m., Bellevue police officers responded to a reported burglary in progress at a residence in the 4000 block of 149th Avenue SE.  The female resident was in her bed when she heard two unknown men in the adjacent room of the house.  The resident was able to call 911 and relay this information to NORCOM dispatchers. While the resident was on the line with 911, the suspects entered the victim’s bedroom and began looking through her dresser drawers. The victim was able to successfully avoid detection by hiding under her bed sheets. The suspects heard police arrive and ran out the back door of the residence. A K-9 unit responded and began to search for the two suspects. A short time later, a Bellevue motorcycle sergeant located two individuals matching the description of the suspects walking along SE 36th Street. The sergeant detained one of the suspects, however the other suspect began running. The second suspect attempted to get into an occupied vehicle in his attempt to escape, however the door was locked and the driver was able to get away. Additional officers responded to the area and took the second suspect into custody after a short foot chase. The suspects, a 21 year-old male Renton resident and a 25 year-old Burien resident, were arrested for investigation of burglary and obstruction. The suspects are not being named as they have not yet been charged with any crime.

Bellevue Police Case #17-38092

Bellevue Police Bust Theft Ring

BELLEVUE, Wash. – Investigators with the Bellevue Police Department, along with Detectives from the Issaquah, Sammamish, Redmond and Kirkland Police Departments, joined forces to combat an organized group suspected of breaking into vehicles at numerous area parks and fitness centers.  Investigators have made 11 arrests to date, and expect to make several additional arrests over the coming weeks. The suspects, working in coordinated teams of two to three, are accused of watching victims hide purses and wallets after parking in a park where walking trails are located, wait for the victim to leave, and then smash the window and take the hidden items. The suspects then use the victim’s stolen credit cards to purchase items at area stores. To date, Investigators have linked the suspects to over $100,000 worth of loss in Bellevue alone.

The suspects that have been arrested are:

  • Treshaun Sinclair, 20
  • Leila Haji, 19
  • Ahjanie Thompson, 24 (arrested twice)
  • Deionte Hunter, 20
  • Tevona Hollis, 20
  • Dwight Miles Jr., 24
  • Tatiana Dickey, 18
  • Leneeka Warren, 19
  • A 20 year-old female that has not yet been charged
  • A 20 year-old male that has not yet been charged
  • A 19 year-old female that has not yet been charged

Investigators have also linked many of these suspects to the individuals charged in the death of Moises Radcliffe, the son of a Seattle Police Officer, killed in Sammamish in January of this year during an attempted car prowl at Beaver Lake Park.

In addition to the arrests, investigators have recovered two handguns that may be linked to shootings in South Seattle and King County earlier this year.  The guns are currently being analyzed to see they can be linked to additional crimes. Police have also seized three vehicles that were used in the commission of the felony crimes or were obtained through money laundering. The combined efforts of higher visibility in the parks by uniformed officers and public education, combined with the intelligence and arrests by detectives working the operation, have resulted in our park prowls dropping significantly.

 

 

 

Police urge residents to prevent these types of crimes by never leaving valuables in their vehicles, and ask people to LOCK, TAKE, LEAVE – lock your car, take your valuables with you, or leave valuable items at home.
