Stolen game consoles top police blotter
Wii gaming consoles stolen
The King County Sheriff’s office announced that over 7,000 Nintendo Wii gaming consoles were stolen from a SeaTac distribution warehouse.
Sgt. Cindi West says the thieves are believed to have driven two tractor cabs to the warehouse. They used forklifts to load two 53-foot-long trailers and a box van with at least 64 pallets of the consoles, then drove off with the stolen merchandise. The value is estimated at more than $2 million, including the stolen vehicles.
The white trailers have California license plates and the name “McKinney” on the side. West says the box van has Seattle Air Cargo written on the doors and bears a Washington license plate. The thieves pulled into Seattle-Tacoma Airport's Air Cargo warehouse and loaded the shrink-wrapped pallets of consoles into semi-trucks brought for the purpose. If you have information, please contact the King County Sheriff's office at 206-296-3311.
SeaTac police close in on suspect
Police in SeaTac were reportedly closing in on the person who's been shooting out car windows, including at least 21 cars within a week. They believe a BB or pellet gun was used, and that the shooter drove a green Subaru. While police have impounded a car fitting that description but they have not found the suspect. In addition to hitting cars, some neighbors reported busted windows in their homes. They estimate the culprit has caused over $10,000 in damage. SeaTac police are working with other King County agencies that are investigating similar cases.
