It’s back to school time – slow down and watch out!

As more than 20-thousands Bellevue students head back to school on September 4th, it’s time to slow down and pay attention in school zones. Back to schoolBellevue Police remind drivers that the speed limit is 20 mph in school zones with flashing yellow lights. In school zones without flashing lights, the speed limit is 20 mph when children are present. Increased congestion and the unpredictability of younger children make school zones particularly dangerous.

There are three school zones in the Bellevue School District with photo enforcement cameras. If you are caught going faster than the 20-mph posted limit in those zones when the yellow lights are flashing, you’ll receive a $124 fine in the mail.  The photo enforcement cameras are located at Stevenson Elementary School, Lake Hills Elementary School, and Sunset Elementary School.  Last year, the photo enforcement cameras resulted in over 5,000 citations.

School Bus stop signSchool buses will also be on the roads again carrying precious cargo. You must stop for school buses when lights are flashing, or the stop sign is out. That applies to both directions of traffic on a two-way road. Oncoming traffic on a four-lane street can proceed with caution.

Here are some safety tips for drivers and pedestrians from the Bellevue Police Department:

  • Slow down in school zones. The stopping distance of a vehicle traveling 30 mph is nearly twice the stopping distance of a car traveling 20 mph.
  • Pick your children up at the designated area, not in the street.
  • Pay attention while driving. It is illegal to drive and use a personal handheld device under Washington’s distracted driving law, even when stopped at a traffic sign or signal or stuck in traffic. These fines are moving violations and are reported to insurance companies.
  • Watch for pedestrians when entering a school driveway or turning a corner.
  • Stop for children and other pedestrians getting on and off school buses. It’s unlawful to pass a school bus when the red lights are flashing.  For more click here.
  • Stop behind the crosswalk at intersections to allow room for pedestrians. Pedestrians should use crosswalks and cross with the crossing sign or light.
  • If your kids walk to school, make sure they know the rules of the road and your expectations.

Have a great school year and be safe!

Locker theft ring busted, three suspects charged

Bellevue police put another dent in the very active gym locker theft business. Detectives have arrested two busy thieves 50-year-old Troy Mitchell and 49-year-old Sean Savage, and there is a warrant for 50-year-old Sidney Williams who is currently in Wisconsin. The three are responsible for dozens of locker break-ins where they steal cash and credit cards, then rack up significant charges.  In just these cases alone, the fraudulent purchases amount to over $16,000.

Troy Mitchell

Mitchell, considered the ring leader, was arrested at a rental car return counter as he arrived back in Seattle from Atlanta on August 26th. Detectives had tracked Mitchell as he traveled around the country and checked into gyms. There are several corresponding locker theft reports from those locations, including Colorado and Minnesota. In Seattle, he was booked into jail on nine counts of theft, identity theft and conspiracy to commit identity theft.

After Mitchell’s arrest, detectives found two fake drivers licenses out of Nevada and Illinois in his wallet. Both pieces of identification have Mitchell’s photo and two different aliases listed. They also recovered five possibly counterfeit debit cards and 11 gift cards of various amounts.

A second suspect, 49-year-old Sean Savage, was arrested August 28th after he was identified as a member of this theft ring. Detectives recovered clothing, including the pink shirt seen in the surveillance photo where Savage is accused of using stolen credit cards.

Detectives also filed charges against 50-year-old Sydney Williams for his part in this gym locker theft ring. Williams is currently in Wisconsin, and there is a warrant for his arrest.

Gym locker thefts have been rampant across the country lately. There have been more than 80 reported cases in Bellevue since the beginning of the year. Detectives busted another locker theft ring earlier this month, and those two suspects are still behind bars.

Police credit both 24-Hour Fitness and LA Fitness for cooperating with the investigation. Following the first case, LA Fitness installed video cameras in its two Bellevue locations, which is a significant help in identifying suspects.

Rock Smash Burglary suspect – at it again

32-year-old Shon Shanell is back in jail today charged with residential burglary in connection with a home burglary on July 20, 2019.  Detectives say Shanell broke into a house and stole cash and a classical Spanish guitar. Video surveillance shows Shanell taking the guitar from the home. During a search warrant, investigators recovered the guitar, jewelry, and a very large rock from inside his backpack.

Two other members of the Rock Smash Burglary Crew were convicted on multiple counts in connection with the case. The Crew was responsible for stealing about $3 million in cash, jewelry and luxury handbags from more than 100 high-end residences in Seattle, Bellevue, Medina, Clyde Hill, and Kirkland.

In the current case, Shanell is has been charged with one count of residential burglary and is in jail on 100-thousand dollars bail. The investigation continues, and more charges could be forthcoming.

Bellevue Detectives capture prolific locker thieves

Bellevue police detectives have arrested two suspects who’ve been wreaking havoc at local gyms for the past ten months. Investigators say 33-year-old Joseph Gill and 30-year-old D’Mario Mallory appear to target gyms that don’t have security systems.

 

After checking in at the front desk, the two suspects would cut the locks off lockers and steal wallets containing cash and credit cards. The pair placed new locks on the lockers, causing a delay in reporting. Mallory and Gill then immediately used the stolen credit cards to buy gift cards. While the thefts occurred at gyms all over King County, dozens were reported at the Kelsey Creek LA Fitness on 148th Ave NE and Main St. in Bellevue.

Detectives identified the suspects after obtaining store surveillance video of both suspects using the stolen credit cards. Search warrants on the suspects’ homes and cars yielded dozens of gift cards and thousands of dollars in Western Union receipts.  Detectives also recovered cut padlocks, bolt cutters, and clothing worn during the crimes.

 

Detectives arrested Gill on July 1, 2019, while in jail on an unrelated case. They arrested Mallory on August 8, 2019. Both are charged with three counts of identity theft and are currently in custody at King County jail.

LA Fitness is working with Bellevue Police to improve its security measures.  Detectives are encouraging the company to install video surveillance cameras to aid in identifying future suspects.

Investigators warn other theft rings are actively working gyms in the Puget Sound area.  Detectives suggest you check with the management at your gym about cameras and other security measures.
