The King County Sheriff’s Office released the following infrared video shot from its Guardian One helicopter, showing the scene as five car theft suspects were tracked down and arrested after crashing a stolen car in Burien near SW 146th and Ambaum Blvd. SW Tuesday night (Oct. 6): [youtube][/youtube] The chopper crew spotted the suspects hiding behind cars parked in an alley, shortly after they crashed the stolen car off Ambaum Blvd. SW. Police say that the thieves crashed the vehicle into a concrete post so hard that a tire flew off and hit a fence. Police add that they also found an ammunition magazine in the car, which led them to a gun which had been discarded into a nearby backyard.
