SEATTLE - Two suspects, who police believe are responsible for nearly 60 smash-and-grab ATM burglaries, were arrested Friday, according to The Seattle Police Department (SPD).
The SPD General Investigations Unit and Bellevue detectives say they believe the 30 and 33-year-old suspects have smashed their way into upwards of 60 businesses in the Seattle area in the last year. Both men are currently booked into the King County Jail for burglary, theft, malicious mischief and possession of a stolen vehicle.
Authorities say members of SPD’s SWAT, Major Crimes Taskforce and Gun Violence Reduction Unit served two warrants at a Tukwila motel on Friday morning, arrested the suspects and impounded two vehicles.
Detectives say the suspects have stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, and caused tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to the businesses in the process.
The investigation remains underway.
