Kent Police make five warrant arrests in six days across the city

Three on the East Hill and two in the Valley

Kent Police had a busy six days, including the arrests of five people on numerous misdemeanor warrants across the city.

The five cases were summarized by Kent Police in a Nov. 2 statement:

Multiple warrants

At about 1:59 p.m. on Oct. 27, an officer was conducting patrols in the parking lot of the East Hill Fred Meyer, 10201 SE 240th St., when he noticed a car without plates in the lot. The music was blaring but the occupant, a 66-year-old Kent woman, was none the less asleep. Turns out she reportedly had just used some narcotics. With the help of another officer, they boxed in the car so she would not try to flee when awoken. She was arrested for warrants totally $10,600.

The woman has a significant history in Kent of thefts, trespassing, warrant arrests and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Obstructing

At about 5:18 p.m. on Oct. 28, an officer was conducting extra patrols near the bus shelter at 400 East Smith Street. He saw a subject, a 43-year-old Seattle man, acting strangely and causing the officer to believe he was actively smoking fentanyl in the bus shelter. The officer made contact and determined that the man had a warrant for obstructing on a prior contact when he was arrested in Kent for a $10,000 fourth-degree assault warrant out of Ellensburg.

Domestic violence

At about 5:46 p.m. on Oct. 29, an officer responded to a 911 call of a fight near the 300 block of Washington Avenue South. There was no evidence of a fight, but one involved party, a 33-year-old man, had a $1,500 Tacoma Police warrant for domestic violence harassment. He was arrested and transported to the Pierce County Jail.

DUI

At about 10:27 p.m. on Oct. 31, an officer responded to the area of SE 209th Street and 108th Avenue SE on a welfare check of a man who turned out to be very intoxicated. He fought attempts to assist him, and it was subsequently determined that he had a $10,000 warrant out of Renton for DUI.

Theft

At about 8:16 a.m. on Nov. 1, an officer answered up to assist another officer at the Home Depot, 26120 104th Ave. SE, on a shoplift call. They located the suspect in the theft, a 24-year-old Kent woman, and her buddy a short distance away. The buddy, a 31-year-old Kent man, had a $2,500 warrant in Auburn for theft. He was arrested and transported to the SCORE jail in Des Moines, a facility used by the cities of Auburn, Burien, Des Moines, Renton, SeaTac and Tukwila.
