Fife Detectives served a search warrant on the vehicle, a silver 2006 Dodge Charger, and found evidence linking it to the burglary in Edgewood as well as a handgun stolen in a burglary in Auburn. Detectives also located numerous items of stolen mail from what they believe may belong to as many as 200 victims through Pierce and King Counties. Detectives also believe that the male may have used one of his false identifications to purchase a vehicle in Federal Way.
The male was booked into Pierce County Jail for possession of stolen property, identity theft, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of a controlled substance. Detectives are continuing their investigation and are attempting to contact owners of the stolen mail.
