Suspects caught in package thefts – if you were a victim, Shoreline police want to talk to you

December 18th, 2013 · Comments

Update Thursday: Here’s the link to Q13 Fox’s news segment on the stolen items recovered.

Update: Det. Coblantz was interviewed by Q13 today for a story airing tonight during the 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts. Their video will show the remaining stolen items. If you see what you believe are your stolen items, then please email Det. Coblantz at Cary.Coblantz@kingcounty.gov.

He said he can’t keep up with the hundreds of emails that have come in today, including many from people who are asking about items stolen years ago, so please only email if your packages were stolen in late November/early December. The suspects were arrested Dec. 12.

Earlier: Det. Cary Coblantz in the Criminal Investigations Unit of the King County Sheriff’s Office/Shoreline Police is looking for anyone in the neighborhood who believes they had a package stolen in the last few weeks by a man and woman driving a gray four-door sedan. The two were arrested in Shoreline after a car chase, and the man is still in custody. Det. Coblantz said he has a large amount of stolen items to be reunited with owners. You can email him a list of your missing items; if he has a match to recovered items, he’ll get back to you.

His email is Cary.Coblantz@kingcounty.gov. If anyone witnessed the suspected thieves, he’d like to get your statement and have you look at some photos.

Det. Coblantz said he is fielding about 100 calls a day on this and another case, so please email instead of calling, and he won’t have time to call back if he doesn’t have a match to your stolen items.
