Robbery on 54th Ave.

On January 26th at approximately 5:45 PM, Fife Officers were dispatched to a robbery in the 1200 block of 54th Ave E.  Officers contacted the victim who relayed to them that he was on a lunch break from his nearby place of employment, and was walking back from a convenience store.  The victim said another male was walking on the sidewalk toward him and when he passed the other male, the male grabbed him by the collar of his shirt and tried to drag him to the ground.  The suspect and victim struggled over a bag of food that the victim had just purchased and the suspect was able to pull the bag away from the victim.   When the victim tried to take the bag back, the suspect pulled out a knife and threatened to stab the victim.  The suspect then demanded the victim’s wallet which the victim gave him.  The suspect fled on foot south on 54th Ave E toward Pacific Hwy E. 

The suspect was described as a white male, mid-twenties to mid-thirties, medium build, wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, and blue jeans.  The suspect was also described as having a “bushy blond beard” and “stained teeth.”  Detectives believe the suspect may be a transient living somewhere in the area.

Anyone with information about the robbery or a possible suspect is asked to call the Fife Police Department at 253-922-6633 and ask for Detective Sergeant Thompson.

Auto Crimes Enforcement (ACE)

Today, the Auto Crimes Enforcement (ACE) auto theft task force of Pierce County concluded a mission called "Operation Cancel Christmas."  Their task was to identify the region's most prolific auto thieves and arrest them for outstanding bench warrants in order to preclude them from committing their crimes over the holiday season.  ACE detectives arrested 7 of the targeted 17 suspects, and today arrested a male subject in Tacoma.  With the Tacoma Police SWAT team serving 2 warrants in the City of Tacoma, the male subject, who was considered the "ACE of Spade" suspect for the warrant sweep, was finally apprehended.  He was wanted for 2 felony warrants for eluding area police in stolen vehicles, a recent car jacking in Tacoma, and a home-invasion robbery.

The task force believes his arrest will be measurable because the male subject admits to stealing up to 7 cars per week, and claims to have stolen a minimum of 700 cars in the past 10 years.

He was booked into the Pierce County Jail.

The ACE Task Force is staffed by detectives from Fife Police (parent agency), Puyallup Police, Tacoma Police, Pierce County Sheriff's Office, Washington State Patrol, real-time crime analysts from South Sound 911/LARIAT, and a deputy prosecutor from the Pierce County Prosecutor's Office.
