Three arrested after man tracks stolen electronics to Capitol Hill

The man called police just after midnight Nov. 10 saying he'd tracked his stolen iPad and laptop to the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant near Broadway and East John Street. The items had been stolen from his car in Bellevue the day before.

When officers arrived, the victim said his items were in a Honda SUV in the lot. Officers said they found a 40-year-old man standing outside the SUV, holding the victim's stolen backpack.

After running the SUV's license plate, police found the car was reported stolen and had fake temporary tags.

Seattle police said the victim's stolen electronics were recovered along with 19 small baggies of heroin – a total of three grams – and 11 grams of methamphetamine.

The man was arrested on a Department of Corrections Warrant as well as for investigation of narcotics possession and possession of stolen property. A 34-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man who were in the Honda were also arrested on warrants.

The suspects were booked into the King County Jail.
