A Seattle Police officer conducted a routine traffic stop of a driver suspected of being under the influence early Thursday morning near the intersection of Phinney Avenue North and North 65th Street.

When the officer contacted the male driver, he observed signs of impairment, so the officer arrested the 31-year-old male suspect for driving under the influence. Police obtained a blood warrant and released the suspect from custody at the hospital.  

The male suspect’s vehicle was seized for further investigation. During a search of the car, officers located two stolen handguns, narcotics, and cash.

Police later learned the suspect had an outstanding felony warrant, so he was placed under arrest for the warrant and possession of a stolen firearm. His 31-year-old male passenger was also arrested for possession of a stolen firearm.  

Both suspects were booked into King County Jail.  

The following was recovered from the seized vehicle: 

  • Approximately $5,300 in cash 
  • 76.4 grams of marijuana (illegal amount)
  • Two stolen handguns 
  • Digital Scale

Officer Judinna Gulpan
