Police uncover theft operation in Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood

An Eastlake-based theft operation was busted Thursday after Seattle police discovered a stolen motorcycle surrounded by backpacks in Queen Anne.

Officers spotted the motorcycle near a Queen Anne grocery store around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday. Ten minutes after they started watching for suspects to approach the stolen property, a man and woman walked up to the bike and picked up the bags.

When officers arrested the man, who gave them a fake name, it was discovered he was carrying stolen bank cards.

Burglary detectives were led to a home on Boylston Avenue and East Newton Street, where they and a SWAT team served a search warrant around 9 a.m. Thursday morning. Police found two more stolen motorcycles, a gram of methamphetamine, six suspected stolen bicycles and more than a dozen suspected stolen computers.

A 36-year-old man at the home was arrested and booked into King County Jail.
