Update on Sunday’s SWAT raid
An excerpt for our Block Watch Captains communication:
Hi Neighbors – I contacted our new SPD crime prevention coordinator, Terrie Johnston, about Sunday morning’s police activity at 14038 Palatine Ave N. Terri was able to tell me “Three people were arrested there. The case was one of the Edmonds Police Dept. so I don’t have much to report except that they served a search warrant and got the 3 people, 2 men and 1 female.”
I’m told by a neighbor who saw a lot of the activity and chatted with officer(s) that: The search warrant was in relation to a residential burglary in the Meadowbrook neighborhood of Edmonds. In that burglary, guns were stolen.
The house has been foreclosed. The people who are/were living there are doing so illegally. None of the people detained or arrested have a valid driver’s license and a few of them are on active Dept Of Corrections supervision. Narcotics may be an issue as well.
There are also people living in the rear structure, which is legally only to be used for storage. I filed yet another complaint with DPD [Dept of Planning & Development] Monday.
You are encouraged to keep an eye on this property and to immediately report any and all suspicious activity to the Seattle Police Department non emergency line (206) 625-5011
