According to the Bellevue Police blog, detectives have now referred 70 looting suspects to the King County Prosecutor’s office for charges in connection with the May 31st riots. Bellevue Police detectives continue to look through videos and follow up on leads.
Police Chief Steve Mylett warned, “We want to send a very clear message to anyone thinking about committing crimes in Bellevue… If you commit violence or destruction in Bellevue, we will follow the evidence, find you, and arrest you.”
The majority of suspects that are being investigated are potentially being charged with burglary, possession of stolen property, and malicious mischief. Two of the 70 suspects are known to be from Bellevue.
The Bellevue Police still need help identifying suspects. Please see the link and if you recognize any of the suspects, please call Bellevue Police at 425-577-5656.
