King County prosecutors have filed additional charges against a teenage boy accused of burglarizing Mayor Mike McGinn’s chief of staff, Julie McCoy, earlier this year.
Prosecutors have slapped the 16-year-old boy with “trafficking in stolen property” charges after detectives discovered the teen had sold a TV allegedly stolen from McCoy’s home in February.
The teen, along with two accomplices who have not yet been charged, allegedly stole TVs, iPods, gameboys, and two cars from McCoy’s Carkeek Park home as she and her five children slept.
During a separate burglary investigation last week, detectives spoke with a man who said the 16-year-old charged for burglarizing McCoy’s home had sold him a 44″ TV—just like the one stolen from McCoy’s residence—several months ago for $100 dollars.
Police arrested the 16-year-old at a bus stop near the University District on May 13th and booked him into the Youth Service Center.
