Search of impounded vehicle results in discovery of cash, cocaine, miss-registered sex-offender in SeaTac and Seattle
Burien Police are reporting that the search of an impounded vehicle led police to the discovery of a shocking amount of criminal activity in SeaTac and Seattle. The incident took place on April 17 after police received a warrant to search an automobile that had recently been impounded after a traffic stop. The search of the vehicle lead to the discovery of $400,000 in cash hidden in a concealed compartment. The discovery of the cash lead police to serve warrants on a home in Seattle and a home in SeaTac on April 18. This search resulted in the discovery of cocaine, a large-scale illegal marijuana growing operation, more cash and guns. These items were all taken into evidence. One of the suspects in the home was a gang member with a previous conviction for murder. The other suspect was a Level 1 sex offender who had failed to register at the location.

Man charged with hit and run after reporting car theft
The King County Sheriff’s Department is reporting that a man in northeast Burien was formally charged with a hit and run after he reported his late model Honda stolen. The incident took place in the early morning hours of April 7 when the suspect was driving near the intersection of Military Road South and South 120th Street. Witnesses told police that they saw the suspect in his Honda driving along South 120th Street when he drove off the road and hit a tree before ultimately lodging his car into a fence. The suspect was then said to have fled the scene or the accident on foot. Shortly after the wreck, the suspect called the police and reported that his vehicle had been stolen. When police investigated the auto theft, they determined that the owner of the vehicle was the very same driver to have driven the car off the road. The suspect was formally charged with a hit and run. Police did not release information about whether alcohol was involved in this accident or not.
