Officers Recover Stolen Vehicle, Narcotics & More During Busy Summer Day

Officer Chao hit the streets running yesterday for his first day of field training on a day which saw Tukwila officers respond to and or initiate a total of 101 calls for service.

Officer Chao recovered a stolen car and detained the suspect, recovered multiple types of prescription narcotics, recovered a toy gun with all the orange tips and safety markers removed, took an auto-theft report, a vehicle prowling report, did several welfare checks, checked on a 9-1-1 hang-up call, checked on a suspicious person loitering behind a business and managed to fit in lunch, work on some reports and book evidence plus backing other officers on their calls.
