According to a post on their Facebook page, Monday morning (Oct. 6) at 3 a.m., Burien Police Officer Davis saw a reckless driver going 80 MPH in a 35 MPH zone.

“The dangerous driver also ran through a red light at S. 128th and 1st Ave South, nearly causing an accident,” police said. “The officer turned his emergency lights on to pull the driver over and the driver took off at an even higher rate of speed. He continued to run traffic lights and stop signs, and even turned his headlights off in an attempt to get away from the officer.”

Burien P.D. adds:

I’ve written about pursuits before and how dangerous they are. They endanger other motorists, officers, and the offenders. We always have to balance the need for apprehension against the crime the suspect is wanted for. In this case, the officer’s pursuit was terminated because things were so dangerous. Fortunately, the officer found the car abandoned a short time later and heard someone crashing through some bushes nearby.

Police set up a perimeter and called for K9 to help with the search. Before our eager K9 team could begin the search, the suspect ran across a street right in front of a perimeter officer. That officer chased the suspect down and apprehended him. The suspect had the car keys to the car he had abandoned in his pocket and admitted to eluding Officer Davis. He also had a felony amount of marijuana (75 grams) and some heroin with him in his backpack along with a ski mask, flashlight, knife, ammunition, and gloves. We doubt he was carrying the “10 essentials” for a hiking trip and suspect he was looking to commit crimes against our awesome Burien community. On top of all that, he had a felony warrant for burglary!

Great job to Officer Davis and all the other officers who helped nabbed this bad guy!

    75 grams of smoke for a weekend hiking/camping trip?
    Sounds about right if theres only a couple of ya..
    Seriously though, what kind of dumbass would go 80 in a 35 when they have drugs
    and “burglary type tools” on them?
    I guess maybe one that got into their meth stash? *lol*
    I wonder if the cops looked for a gun he may have thrown from the car beings how he had ammo with him, since it doesnt do much good without a firearm.
