Felony Harassment

On a Tuesday afternoon at the Fred Meyer in Shoreline, the defendant pointed a realistic looking handgun at a security guard who asked him to leave. Although police discovered it was an airsoft gun, it looked real to the victim, which caused him to fear for his life. Given the defendant’s actions, combined with the nature of his criminal convictions that include three assault cases, the KCPAO argued that he should be held on $50,000 bail.


Burglary in the Second Degree

The defendant broke into a sock store near the Pike Place Market in Seattle. When police arrived, the officers observed the cash register open and appeared to have been rifled through. Burglary tools, cash, drugs, and drug paraphernalia were found on the defendant’s person and in her backpack. At the time of arrest, the defendant had active warrants for her arrest on burglary charges from 2020.


Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act (possession with intent — meth)

In the Seattle case near Westlake Park, the defendant was observed by police to be engaged in drug deal. Search incident to arrest, the defendant had on his person methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine, and $1,175.42 in cash. The defendant has multiple convictions in California, including a 1997 manslaughter conviction and a 2006 hit and run death or injury case. The KCPAO argued that the defendant should be held on $50,000 because he’s a danger to the community. The first appearance judge set bail at $30,000.
