Seattle police hit the trifecta this morning when they busted a suspected car prowler who was armed with two loaded handguns and discovered he was wanted on a warrant.
A Queen Anne man called police around 3:20 a.m. Monday to report seeing someone inside his truck in the 1000 block of Third Avenue North. The man told police he thought the prowler had stolen a handgun he kept in his truck, according to police.
An officer and his K-9 partner, Ziva, tracked the suspected car prowler to a garage near Second Avenue North and Aloha Street.
Police recovered the handgun stolen from the pickup. The suspect, 19, was also carrying a second loaded handgun, as well as two vehicle titles that belonged to other victims, police said.
Police say the prowler also was wanted on a state Department of Corrections escape warrant. He was booked into King County Jail.
