Police stop results in chopper search, arrests in Burien Thursday night
We received numerous inquiries about police and chopper activity in the 14200 block of 8th Ave South in Burien Thursday night (May 30), and here’s what we have learned:
According to Sgt. Cindi West of the King County Sheriff’s Office:
“…just before 8 p.m. one of our officers stopped a vehicle near the 14200 block of 8th Ave S.
The officer believed the subject was a person with outstanding warrants.
During the stop one of the occupants fled the area and the helicopter was circling the area looking for the person.
The helicopter did locate a person hiding nearby but it was not the person that had fled.
The guy hiding thought he had a warrant.
We did find the person with the warrants in a trailer and he was arrested for his warrants and unlawful possession of a firearm.
We also arrested another female from the trailer that had an outstanding DUI warrant.”
