Ultimately, they discovered that the car was an unreported stolen vehicle. Both suspects were arrested and one was booked into the King County Jail. The male in this case, is a convicted felon and had an outstanding warrant out for his arrest.  Deputies also recovered numerous keys that appeared to be “shaved” commonly used to steal cars. Suspected narcotics were also recovered as well as numerous items possibly taken from car prowls.
On August 15, deputies were dispatched to investigate a report of stolen license plates. After taking the report the deputy began checking the parking lot and found a vehicle that had the stolen plates from above on it. The car was occupied by a female who was slumped over the driving wheel and appeared to be sleeping. The deputies opened the door and the female woke up. The deputy recognized the woman from past contacts. There was a loaded syringe in her lap which she quickly grabbed. She was ordered to drop the syringe which she did.
Ultimately, we recovered five cars and one set of stolen license plates, suspected narcotics to include heroin and methamphetamine. It seems the suspects in this stolen car ring are all known to one another and work together.

*There may be additional suspects. If you own an early model Honda, we suggest that you may want to invest in a steering wheel locking device.
