At 11:25 a.m. today, a patron at the Mary Wayte Pool reported that two black males took his car keys from his locker and stole his vehicle.

Another pool user observed the motor vehicle theft and followed the suspects.

A MIPD officer observed the vehicle near the Shorewood Heights apartments: the two suspects bailed out of the vehicle, leaving it on the shoulder in the 3600 block of 88th Ave. SE. Officers set up containment in the area and requested a K9 Unit — Seattle Police K9 responded to the scene.

The Mercer Island School District was advised of the police activity and Northwood Elementary was put on modified lockdown (i.e. outer perimeter only). Seattle PD K9, MIPD, and the King County Guardian One helicopter searched the area surrounding Shorewood Heights for the two suspects, locating and apprehending both of them.

The suspects were positively identified by the witness from Mary Wayte Pool. The MIPD advised the MI School District to release their lockdowns on the North Mercer Campus.
