From the Blotter:
On October 14th, at approximately 3:45 AM, a West Precinct officer was contacted by a witness in the 2300 Block of 8th Avenue. The witness told the officer that a man had attempted to sell him cameras the man claimed to have stolen from a camera shop near Queen Anne. The witness gave the officer a physical description of the suspect. That information was broadcast to other officers in the area. At approximately 4:30 AM, another West Precinct officer contacted a possible suspect downtown at 6th Avenue and Pine Street. The suspect had several outstanding warrants for his arrest. The warrants were verified and he was arrested. The suspect had a large amount of camera equipment in duffel bags he had with him. The equipment had receipts and tags for a shop in the 500 Block of Dexter Avenue North. Officers responded to that location and discovered a broken front glass door. The suspect later admitted to breaking into the shop and stealing the equipment. The value of the stolen camera equipment was estimated at between $17,000-$19,000. The property was returned to the shop owner. The 22 year old suspect was later booked into the King County Jail on Investigation of Burglary and his outstanding warrants.
