Large amount of stolen property recovered from King/Snohomish Counties


Shoreline police detectives arrested two suspects at the end of October for investigation of burglary. The suspects – a male and a female – both have criminal histories. Police believe they are responsible for a large number of residential and commercial burglaries in North King and South Snohomish Counties. The investigation continues and other suspects may be arrested.

On November 5, detectives from the King County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant on a storage locker in the City of Monroe. It was full of suspected stolen property, including firearms, jewelry, lots of bags of golf clubs, power tools, bicycles, guitars, and electronic equipment. The locker was associated with a group of notorious serial burglars.

Shoreline Police Detective Cary Coblantz and KCSO Detective Matt Volpe are conducting a joint investigation to locate as many victims and return as much stolen property as possible.

A firearm stolen from a Lynnwood burglary in 2003 was also recovered, along with two other guns identified as stolen.
