From the SPD Blotter:

On 10/6/10, at approximately 12:30 p.m., West Precinct Burglary detectives responded to a motel in the 2400 block of Aurora Ave N. Detectives were attempting to locate and arrest a prolific burglary suspect.

Detectives arrived at the motel, knocked on the door and after about 10 minutes the suspect exited the room. The suspect, a 22-year-old man was arrested without incident. Detectives obtained a search warrant and searched the room.

Property from the suspect’s previous residential burlgaries, carprowls, and commercial burglaries was recovered from the room. The suspect was booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary.

According to detectives, the suspect committed numerous car prowls, commercial and residential burglaries (condo/apartment garages) with 100+ victims in the Seattle area.  

Detectives have compiled a catolog of property found in the suspect’s room. The goal is to return these items to their rightful owners.  On November 15 & 16, victims can stop by the West precinct between 1000 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to view items in person. Potential victims may also view the items from the link below.

SPD has put photos of a bunch of the recovered items online for your perusal. Recognize any of your stuff?
