Around 8:30AM (4/12), officers responded to the soon to be demolished Regal Theater in the 5900 blk S 180th St after receiving reports of two individuals wearing all black walking inside the perimeter fence.
Responding officers located the suspicious subjects who turned out to be workers boarding up the location. The workers reported that they had discovered an unsecured door. Officers began a sweep of the building and saw movement and a flashlight on an upper floor.
The suspect (a 48-year-old male from Renton) was located as he was attempting to exit the building and taken into custody without incident. Multiple officers immediately recognized the suspect from numerous previous arrests dating back several years. The suspect has prior felony convictions for assault, burglary and narcotics. He also had an active warrant and was booked on the warrant. Presumed narcotics, narcotic paraphernalia and burglary tools were recovered from the suspects bag during a search incident to arrest.
