Neighborhood in Burien targeted in graffiti spree
According to documents filed by the King County Sheriff’s Department, one neighborhood in east Burien was the target of a multi-block graffiti spree that resulted in thousands of dollars in damages to homes and vehicles. The incident took place on the morning of March 8th, around the intersection of South 147th Street and 8th Avenue South in Burien. Residents in the area filed multiple reports with the Burien Police and the King County Sheriff’s Department after finding various tags, phrases and symbols spay painted on fences, buildings, homes and vehicles. Various curse words and the word “swag” were primarily painted in red and green while a number of symbols were painted in purple paint. Victims off the vandals have offered to cooperate with the police to ensure prosecution for these crimes. Police are looking for information about the identities of those involved in the vandalism.

High sword collector investigated by police
According to the SeaTac Police, a man living in the north end of the city was investigated by police on March 7th, after multiple reports of a man, believed to be high on some kind of drugs, was seen carrying large swords in the neighborhood. Police were able to locate the man and confirm that he was using a controlled substance that was making him paranoid. The suspect had a large collection of swords over 4-feet-long, but after an investigation, the collection was determined to be legal for the man to keep in his home. No charges were filed against the suspect.
