• Seattle police find owner of stolen camera with wedding photos


    SEATTLE - UPDATE: Seattle police were able to locate the rightful owner of the stolen camera.

    They thanked everyone who shared the photograph and suggestions!

    Here's what they wrote: 

    The Seattle Police Department received dozens of tips, suggestions, and leads from community members across the country regarding the stolen camera that was recently recovered in SPD’s ongoing investigation into the trafficking of stolen property in the Downtown Corridor. Thanks to community member suggestions and assistance from the SPD’s Digital and Forensic Photo Unit, SPD’s Major Crimes Task Force Detectives were able to ascertain the identity of the owner of the stolen camera and contacted them today. The theft and camera ownership was verified, and the camera will be returned to its rightful owner in Louisiana as soon as possible.

    This is a shining example of how the SPD needs and values our partnership with the community; this type of collaboration empowers us to solve crimes that might not have been solved if not for the public’s assistance.


    A stolen camera has been recovered by Seattle police.

    The camera held wedding photos—dated March 7th, 2015.

    Detectives are searching for the camera’s owner and have shared a photograph from the wedding, hoping it will lead to the rightful owner.
